Update... I texted him, "A t-rex, definitely." and he responded with simply, "that's wrong."
Does he think the chickens would win, or does he think the situation is wrong? I am not convinced he has made the connection yet... Maybe he asks lots of people (like in our family) the question so he thought I heard about it that way?
Perhaps I will start asking him about some of the favorite books/movies he mentions on his page, and see how long it takes for it to click.
That is the best! Hahahahahahaha, sounds like something fun to do after a few drinks, maybe better since I don't have a brother, lol. I can't wait until you see him in person! What the heck is he going to say!?
"On the back of a horse I felt whole, complete, connected to that vital place in the center of me...and the chaos within me found balance."
I am blessed to be happily married and not in need of finding companionship at this point in my life because honestly, I would have no idea....
But seriously, the on line dating game is to me, like the public pool. You can dive in to what seems like an innocent crystal blue pool with the sun shining, lifeguards on duty and a cool deep end with diving boards. But in reality, you're sharing water with a bunch of strangers who at any moment are emptying their bladders and swimming away, only to leave you unawares swimming through their hot spot in the pool.
I say, f with your bro. But that's the sick psycho that I am. But be prepared for him to be royally peeved that you are making fun of his attempts at a love connection. Or perhaps a partner in a strange apocalyptic battle royale between chickens and t rexs.
No way! To address questions/concerns of the sitcom that is my life...
1) He DEFINITELY did not know it was me, because these friends have never met my brother. None of my family knew I had done it, nor had any of my other friends who would know my brother (work friends vs. hometown friends).
2) Since he responded "that's wrong," here's the rest of the text convo. To give you some insight, I'm 25, he's 28 and a lawyer (just so you can really picture the scenario!)
Me (out of the blue): A t-rex, definitely...
Him: That's wrong
Me: How could chickens beat a t-rex?
Him: A million?! I figure the T-rex stomps about 10,000 before they get organized.
Me: I don't know if chickens get organized...
At this point in the convo, my students arrive, and I can no longer look at my phone. I check at lunch and find:
Him: That's the real question, isn't it?
Him: I mean the knee jerk response is t-rex, but picture getting in a ring with an angry chicken. You would be a little scared.
Him: They can attack.
90 minutes after the "They can attack" text.
Him: Wait a minute. I know where you got that from! You catfished me!
And then he went on to say slightly offensive remarks about girls on OKCupid which I shall leave off of the bulletin boards...
I swear, this is 100% true and he 100% did not know it was me. I literally can't believe this happened.
