I’ve been set up on a blind date.
Stilt’s attitude towards blind dating:

Friend tells me via email that she met someone that who is interested in meeting me for drinks. She gave me his full name and says he’s a professor. I google him. He is not a troll.  But I do not respond to her.  For TWO HOURS.
She replies to me, saying “I sense you are thinking about this.  I am giving him your contact info. You can yell at me later.” My reaction:
Then I reply immediately,
mad? Pictures, Images and Photos

“EMAIL ONLY!!! I AM SO YELLING AT YOU!”

After a week, the Prof contacted me.  In a polite and succinct email, he recapped meeting my friend and suggested we have drinks this weekend.  After a few hours, I replied that I was visiting family out of town all weekend for Mother’s Day.  I suggested next week/weekend.

He confirmed. Thursday. Drinks.

  1. He's not a troll?! Hardly a ringing endorsement. Maybe he'll have an incredible personality…or be hung like a horse. And at least it's drinks. Alcohol helps.

  2. I do not trust an educational institution's picture of him, nor the friend's statement that "he's cuter in person". Call me skeptical. So, he's deemed Not a Troll. Although, Hung Like a Horse would be an acceptable replacement name.

  3. Hung Like a Horse…perhaps he's Native American. Your first born could be Hung Like a Colt.
