Crow with a side of fries, please.

I’m eating a little crow. Okay a big fat chewy one. Which is no simple feat, considering I have an odd affection for the breed. They’re just so stinkin’ SMART. I appreciate that in a bird. And now I’ve veered waaaay off course. And I feel like I owe ma Doogs a follow-up.


So, I’ve been known to bust on Facebook. Like here. And here. If I logged on once a week, that was A LOT. I didn’t get it. The Flair Requests and the Plant Requests and the You’re Great Requests. The Knighthood Invitations. The Gods of Metal Requests. (Awesome. Thanks Bro.) I STILL don’t get it. But for whatever reason, over the past month I started signing on more often. Once a week became a few days a week. And then a few more. And a few more. Just for fun.

And then, two short weeks ago, I reconnected with an old high school classmate. A boy. A very cute boy. And between emails, IMs, text messages and seven hour phone calls, we’ve been talking nearly non-stop ever since. Nevermind that we live on opposite ends of the country. Nevermind that inexplicably, I feel like I’ve known this boy forever. This has to be one of the craziest things that’s ever happened to me, and it’s got me a little discomboobulated, to be sure.

I committed a Cardinal Sin.

I told him about the blog. Which means he knows about the fart lighting. And my Taco Drive-Thru Guy. And the peeing in the shower. And the Granny Panties.

Good God, the Granny Panties.

But, surprisingly, I’m actually completely okay with it. It’s kind of nice to be able to cut to the chase and say “Here’s me. No holds barred. Take me for what I am.” And after howling with laughter upon the realization that for days, he actually thought the photo in the Granny Panties post was ME holding up my own scary, ginormous GPs (It’s NOT, btw. It’s Bridget Jones. Honest.), I was absolutely astounded he was still around.

Remember the ZAZA ZOO I’m always going on about?

Mommypie’s giddy.

  1. LOL First..girl you are a trip!

    Second, how funny. I caught up with a boy that I knew in high school and havent seen for 21 years on facebook. We are going out this weekend! LOL

    Ummm I won’t ever tell him about my blog unless we get married…then I will come in and delete certain blogs and then tell him about it! LOLOLOLOLOL

    I reconnected with an old boyfriend online. We also did the marathon phone calls, IMs, emails… For about a month, I thought I was in love. Then we planned for him to visit and suddenly I freaked and realized I liked him better long distance. Ooops. That’s really an unfair simplification.
    Anyway, best of luck, but keep some perspective.

    I’m still too floored to comment. But I wanted you to know I read it.

  4. Ooooh. a love story! glad to hear this won’t have an effect on your witty writing!

    I’ve had to eat that exact same facebook crow and it wasn’t pretty.

    But, like you, the icing on the facebook cake I had for dessert certainly was!!!

  6. another co-worker

    Wow. 2 posts about the same guy in a 24 hour period? I’m walking over to your office and taking your temperature.

  7. A Facebook love story just like in the movies!

    I’m giddy with you MP… and if you ever want to fly out and see him, I’m fairly certain that your readers would be more than willing to foot the airfare, if you promise to post all about it.

    Oh my goodness. Can’t wait ro read more. Enjoy this bit, you are actually living a scene from one of those great chick flicks right now!
    p.s same time next year is one of my all time faves.

    There must be something in the air. I didn’t get Facebook either, but last month I was sick and in bed for two weeks, bored out of my mind and started logging on more often. Not only did I reconnect with some old friends that I went to school 1st through 8th grades with, but I reconnected with an old boyfriend from high school. We’ve been catching up on the last 20 years and it’s like we never lost touch. We’re both married so there’s nothing happening, but it’s been kind of fun.

    Keep us updated on how things go!

  11. Being giddy is great.

    Can’t wait to hear more about it.

  12. Check it out. I just wrote about Facebook. I recently reconnected with my first love. Let’s just say I’m glad I found Mac Daddy instead!

    I had the exact same thing happen to me on facebook. Weird. Hope it works out for yah!

    OMG, I so completely know what you’re going through! I am here to tell you that while long-distance relationships aren’t easy, they ARE awesome in their own way. I get all the benefits of a husband without the hassles (I like being in control of my own TiVo, thankyouverymuch!)

    Good luck with this new totally amazing relationship! You deserve it!

  15. Are those your real lips?

  16. Also, is that somebody’s head or did you forget to shave your pits?

  17. (Just keepin’ it real.)

  18. Was discomboobulated an intentional typo?

    p.s. I’m happy for you. No jive talk. Straight up. 🙂

  19. DiscombOObulated is my favoritist word evah.

  20. YAY!! Thanks guys for all your support — have I told you lately I love you?

    And BEEJ — yes, real lips. Forgive the pit. I went through a French Phase.

  21. Love that you’re doing this. I keep meaning to write a post about the long-distance so-amazing thing I had once (years ago), and I keep not getting around to it…maybe one of these days. Anyway, this is awesome for you! I’m giddy on your behalf.

  22. OOO Mommy Pie you silly gal you! Have FUN!!!

  23. I went on a date with a guy once who had figured out my last name and read my blog prior to meeting me. It was too weird. He acted like he knew me, knew me and it was not fun. I now wait until they know me better.

  24. Mommy Pie and Facebook Guy sitting in a tree! You can be in one of those commercials like the ones for eHarmony or only for Facebook. That’s awesome, couldn’t happen to a nicer person.

  25. How fricking exciting is this? I am THE same way about Facebook – would definitely take a very, very cute boy to get me on there on a regular basis.

    And yes, good for you for telling him about your blog. I only tell when I know I’m serious and I’m like – “here’s the guide on how to date me – everything is there – read it and weep.”

    Usually goes over fairly well… until I start writing about them.

    I’m so HAPPY for you.

    i can’t keep up with those darn requests so i just gave up, sorry to all my friends.
