i saw u (redux)

i saw u

I saw u Thurs. at Sam’s Bar & Grill. Me: blond, blue eyes, jeans, Hooters t-shirt, approached and suggested that we go to my place so you could check out my hard drive. You: pretty, petite, dark hair, reading “Underworld”, said you’d rather eat a thumbtack sandwich than go home with me. I didn’t get your number. Call me, drinks? 5099

That’s an old post of mine from 2002, later reprinted in the book “Never Threaten To Eat Your Coworkers: Best of Blogs“.

I’m not entirely sure what’s going on, but, as near as I can tell, some students in a Ohio State University English class are reading Never Threaten, and have been told to comment on the “i saw u” entry. As that post’s comments have long since closed, I’m creating this one in its stead. Go nuts.

P.s. I’ve been in touch with the class instructor and verified that this is on the level, despite all appearances.

P.p.s. Uncharitable comments will be deleted. The OSU students are welcome here and I’ll thank you to treat them as guests. Update: I have given up. The “go nuts” exhortation now applies to all.
