Anyway, I'd all but forgotten about valentines day till I had this(IM) conversation as soon as I got to work this morning. I was so tickled senseless by the craziness of it all that I decided to post it here for, hopefully, your bemusement and mine. I have changed the names to minimize any cyber-embarrassment risk to either the parties involved or the 'great' company that puts bread and internet capabilities on my table. SA for Secret Admirer is a girl at my workplace that I could have..... ahem!....(sorry! Lost in translation) until I changed my mind. Am sure her version of what transpired is materially different but you won't find it on this blog.
SA [11:49 AM]: good morning
KK [11:50 AM]: hi dear
I was looking for u yesterday
SA [11:50 AM]: you were??? I was here
KK [11:50 AM]: Not when I looked... u must have signed in late
SA [11:51 AM]: oh maybe....

KK [11:51 AM]: Alright.... u?
SA [11:52 AM]: I'm good thanks....
KK [11:52 AM]: Where are my cookies at?
SA [11:52 AM]: i am picking htem up on the 16th
sorry the 26th
KK [11:53 AM]: Ok... I might have money by then
If am still alive
SA [11:53 AM]: why wouldn't you be???
KK [11:53 AM]: I may have starved to death
SA [11:53 AM]: lol
are you sending me flowers tomorrow?
KK [11:54 AM]: most people give me food or money for it.... but if I get any flowers
SA [11:55 AM]: you should just send them to me, from you.... and your heart
KK [11:56 AM]: They cost money.... which my heart is currently short on
I wouldn't be starving otherwise
SA [11:57 AM]: do you get paid every 2 weeks?
KK [11:57 AM]: yeah... and?
SA [11:58 AM]: what the heck do you do with all that money??
KK [11:58 AM]: Oh... Its all gone b4 it even hits my bank
SA [11:59 AM]: that's not good
KK [12:00 PM]: tell me about it
I'd drink to that but you'd have to buy
SA [12:00 PM]: what about your taxes?
KK [12:01 PM]: I pay them too why/
SA [12:02 PM]: no, didn't you file them???? and get money back
KK [12:02 PM]: No...not yet... the tax preparers want money too
its a vicious circle
SA [12:03 PM]: you can do them for free online
KK [12:03 PM]: Really? Did u do urs
SA [12:04 PM]: yes, they are done
KK [12:04 PM]: Why don't you get me flowers then/
Better yet how about a meal or two?
SA [12:05 PM]: because i am always the person buying... i wold finally like someone to buy for me
KK [12:06 PM]: I see... I would love to do the buying... if only I could
SA [12:07 PM]: Well I do love to buy things for people. But once inawhile it's nice to get things too
KK [12:08 PM]: I so agree with you
SA [12:08 PM]: life sucks i guess..... nothing for me
KK [12:10 PM]: don't worry.... we r in the same boat
I think love is mostly misunderstood and in the process constantly misused. I would love to make that my noble quest; to figure out the real meaning of love, but am currently short on nobility... You lose all pretenses when starvation sets in... my sole ambition right now is to secure a full meal.
