Emails, Emails....So I ended up waiting 2 days to respond to Karaoke boy. Not because I was trying to be all coy, or whatever, but because I hadn't uploaded my pics yet, and didn't know what to say to him. I finally formulated this response:
Hey Karaoke Boy,
Yeah, had a blast with you and your pals. They’re so cool—J was so fun, and your roommate's Pedro outfit was incredible. And you didn’t make such a bad Napoleon Dynamite yourself. Wish my friends could have stayed out, but that’s couples for ya... It was nice to put my prom dress on again last night—did you do anything for Halloween proper?
Glad you liked Big Nick’s—the burgers are great, right?
I’ll email you the photos as soon as I find the cord to my camera (hopefully tonight). They’re pretty cute—I wonder who I like better, you or Napoleon? ;)
Notice I used Sarah's "question" technique (she argues that unless you put a question in an email, they don't have to respond) and expressed my interest. I'm afraid that once he gets the pics, it's bye-bye Karaoke boy, but I'll try and upload them tonight. I fear it may be time to move on to other prospects, if I don't hear from him tonight/tomorrow... Clearly I'm just too accustomed to having people lose interest after date three.
BUT! PT Barnum JUST emailed me!!! (He should have called, but still....). He wrote:
It was so good to meet you the other night! You'll be sickly pleased to know, that our good friend Clark Kent spent at least an hour after you left falling down and getting sick outside the bar. That guy was a mess!
I hope you had a good time in spite of his lacivious advances! If you have that photo of us that would be cool. I seem to remember it being a good picture.
Well, have a good one. Hopefully I will talk to you soon.
Woo hoo! Now I need to think of what to write.... (and now I really have to upload those photos...) Looks like I'll have someone to replace Karaoke boy when he unexpectedly disappears, surely any minute now...
