Last night a friend of mine came online at about this hour. He’s traveling back to his homeland and hasn’t been online in a few days. So when he popped up on Live Messenger I said hello. A few minutes later it was typed back to me, "This isn’t Paul".
I assumed it was his wife, Dawnell. So I made a joke referencing a horrible trick they played on me where they were both messaging me at the same time as if they were in the middle of a domestic dispute surrounding supposed poker trips her husband and I made. The "joke" was that Dawnell was accusing Paul of having a tryst – and I was supposedly his "poker playing cover" for those liaisons. Paul was trying to get me to tell Dawnell that we actually DID play poker on those "trips" that I never went on. Dawnell was seeing if I would lie for Paul, I guess. It was a very nasty prank that I haven’t completely forgiven. Or forgotten. They WILL get theirs. In time.
In any case, I referenced that "joke" and several minutes passed before "my friend" typed back: "This is Paul’s sister – he is sleeping. Sorry my English is not so good".
Heh. Her English was fine. But I wonder what she thought of me telling her that her brother was cheating with hookers in Las Vegas?
Paul, I hope you are having a wonderful trip. Bring me some of that Oraganeboom beer (or whatever it is called). And cheese. But please – keep your chocolate and marshmallow bread spread for yourself. That crap is nasty!
