    Send him a text while you are with him, so you can take a picture of his face when he reads it.
    See those flying monkeys? They work for me.

    That's hilarious!
    The only thing worse would have been if it was your dad that answered...

    But I think you should text him 't-rex"

    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.

    You think?! I dunno... I expected a more animated response out of him if he realized what happened. But maybe he is stunned, and posting on his own BB of some sort

    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!?

    Somebody probably told him (you did say you were with a bunch of drunken friends) and he was pulling your chain.

    It's really very funny, but I think Louise is right, he knew it was you.

    If that's the truth it's a case of who got who......inquiring minds want to know.

    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.

    NO THANKS....

    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.
    ...don't sh** where you eat...

    Thank you, OP, for making my morning. That is FANTASTIC! In a weird sort of way.
    I've heard there's more to life than an FEI tent and hotel rooms, so I'm trying it.

    Back in high school, we did some silly computer thing that "matched" you with compatible classmates. I got matched with the cousin that I called my "twin brother."

    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.

    Oh, and I forgot to mention the very last text from him, after the not so polite remarks...

    Him: So which one were you?



    ... I guess I shouldn't feel too special that I got the t-rex vs. chickens treatment, then!
