Text Flirting Technique -Tested!

December 22, 2021

Suggested “flirty” text that I read about the other day: So I had this dream about you last night . . .

Expected response: Go on . . .

My actual response if I’d received such a text: Go on . . .

(So far so good.)

Suggested follow-up: I’ll tell you about it later.

Expected response: *Proceeds to spend the rest of the day anticipating the later conversation*

My actual response: Why did you bother texting me then?

And That’s No Exaggeration

I hate how it plays to certain tropes, but it’s no secret that L’s Mother is a big fan of alternative foods, and I am . . . not.

With that said, today I tried some hemp-based creamer, promptly gave a Kool-Aid Man worthy “Oh no!”, and went to inform L’s Mother that I would not be using that creamer again.

“Could you taste the hemp?” she asked.

“I could taste the rope,” I told her.
