Problem Solved

So yesterday I wondered aloud whether I should let a friend in on a secret - that I kinda had a little thing the guy I'd been making fun of her for liking too.

Well at around 12:30pm yesterday, it took care of itself.

I got an urgent message on my phone from The Pansy and instead of checking my voicemail, I just called her right back.

"Uh hey, what's up?" I asked "You called?"

"So I've converted you..." she said laughing

"Um, what?" I asked, knowing full well that the cat was out of the bag

"So you like [redacted] too now?"

"Yeah, kinda" I mumbled

"I didn't know you read my blog" I said quietly

"I always have" she replied

"Is this why you asked me if it would bother me if you started liking him too?"

[awkward pause] "Yeah"

"How long have you known?"

"Uh, my friend Dave clued me in this weekend" I thought to myself but I think I said something along the lines of "I don't know"

I was trapped in what was easily one of the most awkward conversations I'd had in a long time.

"I can't believe you wouldn't tell me if you hooked up!" she said indignantly "I would tell you..."

"Yeah," I interrupted "but that's the difference between you and I, I wouldn't want to know!" "That's just how I roll dude, sorry"

I then said something like "Besides, I don't even think I would hook up with him" which at this point is probably true, because I don't even like him that much, and I get bored really easily.

By the time this post is published, I may very well be over him

Ah those cryptographic signals that women send to each other so they always know who another person likes.

One of these days I'm going to learn the cipher so that I can intercept and decrypt those signals.

Cause honestly they always have me fooled.

I forgot one key part of the story, but it's been fixed now.

I forgot to add that she read it in my blog (which I wasn't aware that she read anyways)

Don't worry about it. Plenty more fish in the sea - next week you both may find someone else to crush on.

you know, it's amazing how many people you possibly know who may already read your blog. One of my co-workers was reading mine for months before she finally realized it was me. And, she didn't tell me for another month or so that she had been reading my blog. Glad I didn't say anything about her....

its sooo cool when people totally humor you listening to you tell a story they've already read. it's maybe postmodern or a sign of the times or something.

I know, totally creepy right?

Whatever, I guess it's only fair that she gets to harrass me now.

It's actually her new favourite game...
