Lunchbox:
Thank you, Captain Obvious. Like I’m not painfully aware of that already? I can’t help it, okay?

Gail:
Is that my new nickname?

Lunchbox:
Sorry, that message wasn’t meant for you.

Gail:
Thought I might have nose dialled something interesting and not noticed.

Lunchbox:
Nope.

Gail:
Are u sure you are going to be warm enough in there? I did steal your fleece after all.

Lunchbox:
Very warm, thank you. Enjoy my fleece.

Gail:
U may not get it back.

Lunchbox:
Looks better on you anyway.

———

Gail:
Shit! What was that?

Lunchbox:
An owl.

Gail:
Fuck me!

Lunchbox:
Another owl.

Gail:
U wanna squeeze into my tent and play some cards?

Lunchbox:
Ok, but we have to be quiet. No talking.

Gail:
YOU are telling me not to talk? YOU?

Gail:
Why did everyone have to pitch their tents so close? I can hear everybody breathing. What’s with Darth Vader next door?

——-

Gail:
Okay that was definitely a bear or something.

Lunchbox:
Nope, just another owl.

Gail:
I cant believe u stole all my money and now u are making me sleep in a separate tent.

Lunchbox:
I won it fair and square! Had I realised you would be such a scaredy cat I would have made an effort to borrow a bigger tent. But I own two singles so…

Gail:
Whatever.

——-

Lunchbox:
Will you stop flashing your torch into my tent? It’s getting in my eyes.

Gail:
Who is R.W?

Lunchbox:
What?

Gail:
There are initials written in marker on a patch on the door zipper thingy.

Lunchbox:
No one.

Gail:
Lol, ok.

———

Gail:
Why don’t u have a girlfriend?

Lunchbox:
You take a hint really well don’t you. Lol.

Gail:
I’m just curious.

Lunchbox:
Gail Curious Peck.

Gail:
Sounds better than my real middle name.

Lunchbox:
What is your real one?

Gail:
U first, avoider.

Lunchbox:
Um, nope!

———

Gail:
I know u work a lot, but u are the smartest, funniest and most caring person I have ever met. I don’t understand why someone hasn’t scooped u up already.

Lunchbox:
You forgot beautiful.

Gail:
Fine, that too.

Lunchbox:

Well that’s very nice of you to say but it’s complicated and I am just not that outgoing in the romance department.

Gail:
OK.

———

Gail:
Did your heart get ripped to pieces or something?

Lunchbox:
Or something.

Gail:
How bad was it?

Lunchbox:
Omg! You are relentless!

Gail:
U know all my mess.

Gail:
Sorry, never mind.

Lunchbox:
Fine. Twice. Twice I got my heart smashed but for very different reasons.

Gail:
Smashed?

Lunchbox:
Pretty much.

Lunchbox:
Okay, not so much my last girlfriend, even though I was with her A LOT longer. We were together 7 years and we broke up about 6 months ago.

Gail:
Wow, that is long. Are u okay with it being over?

Lunchbox:
Totally. Have completely moved passed it.

Gail:
So u have only ever had two girlfriends?

Lunchbox:
Yes.

Gail:
Sex included?

Lunchbox:
No, they withheld. Wtf?

Gail:
:P I meant have u only slept with 2 women?

Lunchbox:
Um, nosey much? But yes, just the 2.

Lunchbox:
I date, but I have never been one to just jump into bed with someone just for the hell of it. I have only ever been in long term relationships. No oat-sewing here. Maybe I should though…

Lunchbox:
What’s your magic number then? :D

Gail:
0 for the moment. ;)

Lunchbox:
I meant men, you doofus. It’s only fair we even the keel.

Lunchbox:
Though keep me updated on the other tally. I forgot about your potential gayness. You did play gay particularly well earlier. Is there something you want to tell me?

Gail:
Other than your neck smells particularly nice today? Nope.

Gail:
Anyway… my magic number is 8 or 9.

Lunchbox:
Decisive.

Gail:
What about u and men?

Lunchbox:
That number has been wiped from my memory.

Gail:
That bad huh?

Lunchbox:
At the time I didn’t think so, but after my first time with a woman (my first girlfriend) …

Gail:
There was no going back…

Lunchbox:
Completely life changing. I was dead. Gone. All those years wasted.

Gail:
That’s kind of sad.

Lunchbox:
Okay, I am exaggerating, it was like 3 years. I came out when I was 22.

Gail:
Were u scared?

Lunchbox:
Of coming out?

Gail:
Yes, but also having sex with a woman for the first time?

Lunchbox:
I guess. There were a lot of nerves when I told them. I babbled. You know how I like to babble.

Gail:
No, really? Hadn’t noticed at all. :P

Lunchbox:
I knew my parents loved me and they would accept me, but there was an element of fear there in the moment that I told them. I had heard some horrible stories of parents disowning their children, including my girlfriends at the time. Actually her parents were the reason we broke up eventually. She went back to them when she got sick.

Gail:
Omg, she passed away? I’m so sorry, I can’t even imagine.

Lunchbox:
Nope. Still alive and kicking. Heard through the grape vine a year later she was basically married (to a woman btw) and has since had like two kids.

Gail:
Shit.

Lunchbox:
I was utterly devastated at the time. I was so completely in love with her. She got Non-Hodgkin lymphoma and everything changed. She wouldn’t let me help her. I couldn’t do anything right. I couldn’t even smile at her without her getting angry.

Gail:
But you love to smile. :(

Lunchbox:
:)

Lunchbox:
Her parents arrived one day and they packed up all her things and she moved across the country to be with them. I never saw or heard from her again.

Gail:
Not even to tell u she was okay?

Lunchbox:
No. I had heard reports from friends though, so that helped a tiny bit. Didn’t get out of bed for weeks though.

Gail:
That is kind of fucked.

Lunchbox:
It is indeed.

Lunchbox:
I was a bundle of nerves when we first had sex too.

Gail:
You babbled then too didn’t u?

Lunchbox:
There may have been some babbling, yes. I was so clumsy, it was hilarious.

Gail:
Glad u can laugh about it.

Lunchbox:
I am a quick study. A few minutes later…

Gail:
Of course u are, I’d expect nothing less.

Lunchbox:
And then quite a few more times in the following hours.

Gail:
Okay, u horndog.

Lunchbox:
You asked!

Gail:
That’s the problem with men.

Lunchbox:
They don’t know what they are doing half the time?

Gail:
Pretty much.

Gail:
Kinda jealous.

——-

Lunchbox:
What does you’re middle name start with?

Gail:
H.

Gail:
Is yours Merle?

Lunchbox:
Funny.

Gail:
Meredith, Monica, Mary, Missy, Mindy.

Lunchbox:
You’re going to have to be a little more imaginative.

Gail:
Holly Minge Stewart

Lunchbox:
Seriously?

Gail:
Ssssh! U will wake up the bears!

Gail:
Minx, Minion, Muffin, Monkey?

Lunchbox:
Gail Hermione Stewart

Lunchbox:
Why are you laughing like a hyena?

Gail:
Holly

Lunchbox:
Gail…

Gail:
My answer is yes.

Lunchbox:
Your answer to what?

Gail:
I will marry u. Again.

Lunchbox:
Huh?

Gail:
Never mind. It doesn’t matter.

Lunchbox:
Ok… Lol. You are so weird.

——

Gail:
U should come to Friday night dinner next week seeing as I am missing it tonight to go camping. It can be your punishment.

Lunchbox:
Not so much a punishment. I love awkward family stuff.

Gail:
I apologise for my mother in advanced.

—————

Gail:
Harrison

Lunchbox:
Your middle name is Harrison?

Gail:
Legally, yep. My father promised my brother he could middle name me. Steve was 5.

Lunchbox:
I love it.

Gail:
Thought u might. Steve actually wanted my full name to be Gail Harrison Ford Peck.

Lunchbox:
Your brother is awesome.

Gail:
I’ll make sure not to tell him that.

Gail:
If u ask my mother my middle name is Henrietta. She got quite the surprise when she saw my birth certificate for the first time. My dad got her to sign it when she was half asleep with me hanging off her tit.

Lunchbox:
I like the sound of your dad.

Gail:
He is the only reason I could stand living at the family home for so long.

Gail:
If you ever meet him ask him about it when my mother is in the room. He will enjoy that and I like to watch my mother squirm.

Lunchbox:
I can probably manage that.

Gail:
Mum wanted to get it officially changed but dad said if that were ever going to happen it would have to be when I was old enough to make the decision myself.

Lunchbox:
Go dad! Did you ever feel like changing it?

Gail:
Of course not! It makes my mother crazy!

Lunchbox:
We have something in common then.

Gail:
You like to make your mother crazy too?

Lunchbox:
I do, but for reasons other than torture. But that’s not what I was referring to. My middle name is also a guys name.

Gail:
What is it?

Lunchbox:
I’m not telling.

Gail:
WTF?

Lunchbox:
I think there should be some mystery left in our relationship or this bitch might go stale.

Gail:
Then we should probably stop typing.

Lunchbox:
I think I am getting carpal tunnel.
