I couldn’t help myself, the lack of closure over ‘Gutless Wonder’ was sticking in my craw so I emailed him the following.
“So, opinion is divided. Half my friends are concerned for your welfare. Worried that perhaps you were dragged under a bus or unexpectedly dismembered and unable to send email due to not being able yet to type with your toes.
Others are less charitable and mortified that the cessation of correspondence so abruptly is due to
a demonstration of appalling manners. Particularly when a simple note of thanks and best wishes closes the book neatly and tidily without offense.
I, however, am of a third opinion and that is that my sparkling wit, substantial intelligence and obvious hotness all just became a bit overwhelming. That’s ok, it happens all time. It is the cross I have to bear.
Whichever scenario fits (though, of course, hopefully it isn’t the first) I enjoyed our correspondence and wish you all the best.
NOW it’s finished for me. And boys and girls dating in cyberspace – let this be a lesson to you in clear and honest communication.
That is All.
awesome … as ever :)
Brilliant! Would love to know if you receive a response.
Response received by apparently mystified recipient – he’s been waiting for ME to write back to him all week… so, what do I do, give him the benefit of the doubt?????
Oooh tricksies! But if he didn’t want to keep in touch…he wouldn’t have replied full stop. No?
So maybe….teeny tiny eeeny weenie benefit of doubt?
Gold . . . poor bastard won’t know what hit him!
Hmm, I would cheerfully smack him on your behalf – provided the lack of communication was reason #1.
I hope his toes are curling right now in embarrassment.
Oooops! Just realised I said “WAS” #1, of course, I’m not quite that awful. I meant, “WASN’T” #1…
Haha, I knew what you meant!!
Aunty Helpful Dictator says
I actually LOLed!
hilarious! oh well, at least he knows he needs to bow out gracefully (assuming he does, hoping he won’t!) … worth another shot?
Loving your work.
I’m fairly charitable, so maybe give him the benefit of the doubt… once.
Woah!! Thar’s an email if I ever saw one.
Well, I reckon give him a chance. Just a “tread slowly” kind of chance. If he is wanting to finish things off, you will be able to tell.
Still, vaguely gutless sounding to me.
But, worth the benefit of the doubt I reckon.
I don’t know. I’m not buying it yet. Then again, there’s only one way to find out. Proceed… with caution of course. And good luck! :-)
