Ahoy, Desperate Matey!

Sailboat randomly emailed me last week.  If you remember, Sailboat was an eHarmony match who I likely would have gone out with, except that my first phone conversation with him was awkward and forced.  After that, I just didn't feel like going through the motions and we lost touch.  And when I say "lost touch" I actually mean that I stopped emailing him and never responded to that last text message (that didn't necessarily require a response).

This is what his email had to say (and I quote):  "Hey!  I was cleaning out my inbox (it's a little full!) and came across this.  Thought I would drop you a line and see what's up.  SO?"

What else did he say, you ask?

Absolutely nothing.  That was the entire email.  What a riot.  I believe the "this" he is referring to was an email chain from April.  It was a long email chain.  One of those long getting to know you deals, where you think that just maybe, the kid might be interesting enough to leave the house for on a Friday night.  (Not the case, as it turns out).

But what really cracks me up is how it ends with "SO?"  SO.  IN CAPS.  In your head, it should sound like "SSSSSSOOOOOOOOO?"  I think SO means "SOOOO, if you aren't seeing anyone right now, it would be like, really cool if you could come over and we could get naked."

Seriously, Sailboat blew it.  Because, if his email said something along the lines of "Hey!  I found these old emails while I was cleaning out my inbox.  I regretted that we never got a chance to meet and hang out.  I'm sure you have met someone by now, but on the off chance that you haven't, it would be nice to meet you.  I think we would have fun."

Ok, well, maybe I wouldn't have responded to something that cheesy and desperate either.  

I was tempted to write back and say "SOOOOO... What?" but its been 3 or 4 days.  Probably not worth it at this point.  But I'm still extremely curious to see what riveting things he would say next...
