gpoyw - the me and my internet friend edition.
Last weekend, Marianne was in Athens. I was as giddy as a school girl in anticipation of this adventure. When I finally got to the bar she was at it was a full on run and embrace. Then we spent the rest of the evening in a perpetual state of connectedness. We drank Dixieland Iced Teas and beers and shots a plenty. We laughed and laughed. Her friends chanted my last name because apparently before they came downtown all she had done was talk about me. And about how I was a pipsqueak! They all thought I was going to be Snooki-sized! I’m short but a normal short, not a weird short. Marianne dipped out around 1am, but it was fine because I probably needed to go home. I think the funniest part about it was when her friends kept asking how I knew her. My answer was always just “it’s a long story.” At one point she told one of them how we actually knew one another. I thought that friend was gonna fall down from laughter. Internet friends turned IRL friends, ftw.
