Well, newsflash Elle - that was a solid ten years ago - get your mind out of the gutter you crazy person.
TEN FUCKING YEARS.
I honestly can't comprehend that I am THIS old / that was that long ago.
Well, apparently neither can Bobby.
I was back in the town we went to high school in for the weekend recently and everywhere I went reminded me of him. I don't think of him constantly (we have moved on with our lives) but that weekend, I couldn't shake him.
As fate would have it, all of the mind waves I was sending into the universe apparently reached him because around noon that Saturday I get a DM on my instagram...
Photo of us in his lacrosse jerseys - "ten years ago."
UMMMMM holy shit. How did he KNOW I was thinking about him? This surely isn't the first time facebook's timehop thing alerted him of an event with me so why today of all days did he decide to send that photo?
It does happen to be one of my all time favorite photos of us. I remember that night/party really well - the theme was "lax bros and tennis hoes" I had obviously opted to be a bro and twin with Bobby....I remember taking that fantastic photo together at the very beginning of the night and then I remember screaming at each other outside the party before getting in the car at the end and thinking, "damn it, now that good photo will always bring us back to this fucking fighting moment."
So after he sends that, I decide to lurk his facebook like the stalker I am. Turns out he is across the world on a safari with his entire family, wife included.
Ummmm...not that I am not flattered he was compelled to send me the snapshot but shouldn't you be focused on climbing up a mountain and not getting eaten by a lion or something?
Does your wifey know we talk?? (Yo XF, I still talk to Bobby sometimes, now you know)
Jello HATES me because I called her Jello repeatedly the night I met her soooo I doubt she's cool with us speaking in any capacity but hey, not my problem - I didn't reach out this time around.
So we proceed to small chat back and forth and then the convo dies out. No biggie, it was validation enough to get that DM of the photo.
Ever since - he has been liking alllllll of my shit on facebook.
Does somebody missssssss me?
Sure smells like it.
So yeah - that was an interesting twist of events in Bobbys plot line. If anyone ever needs refreshers, now that I can't direct link them - I will try and repost some of our old shenanigans. (He's the fella I created a scavenger hunt to get back)
Anyone remember that guy I went on a reallllllly amazing date with? Egyptian lawyer toad. Ringing any bells?
He was pushy about trying to have sex with me and then texted me that he never wanted to see me again after date #2...
Yeah, that guy.
He sends me a text a week or two ago....
Unknown #: "Hey Elle."
Elle: "Ummmm who is this?"
Unknown: "BMW M5, Prada Shoes."
Elle: "As much as materialistic things excite me that isn't enough to remind me of who this is...."
(total lie, I knew the second he sent that but fuck him, he can go on and tell me)
Elle: "Ohhhh. The Egyptian."
Lex: "How are you?"
Elle: "Having second thoughts on the "I'm never going to speak to you again bit or are you just this desperate?"
Lex: "Haha. I was going through my contacts and wanted to see how you were."
Elle: "Just dandy, thanks."
Lex: "Would you like to get a drink tonight?"
Elle: "Ah, sorry I have plans for basically forever. Nice try asshole, lose my number."
What a fucking dickwad. To think you can just come creeeeepin back in after being a royal jerk? Fucking patent attorneys, I swear to God I don't understand why they are all such pieces of shit with the ONE exception - my beloved G.
So yeah, that's whats been up over here. Had a brief Jake interaction that proved we really were just a fleeting fling because I felt absolutely zero things besides friendship towards him.
Bestie #1 has had some serious psychopaths lurking her tinder - stay tuned for that one, coming upppppp.
PS I know this isn't the same - it never will be. Nothing can be as good as what it was now and we all have to accept that I have to be "good" now. Believe me, I'm falling asleep thinking about it too.
