Surprise Inside

Hi Dan.

I don't know if you'd remember me.  I'm Michelle and I dated your older brother Tim for three years (from late high school to early college) and we broke up five years ago.  Do you remember me?

I've worked in administration and human resources since college and I've moved out of state with my job.  My sister, Amanda, got married and my father retired from his contracting business.  My mother's still working in her pottery studio.  I think your parents still have a few of her pieces!

I'm thinking about going back to school to become a teacher.  I think you once told me that you thought I'd make a great teacher.  Isn't that funny!

Anyway I have a 5-year-old and I think it's Tim's, so let him know to get in touch with me, okay.



  1. o_O

    So . . . what ended up happening here?

  2. ...

    I would have mentioned it to Tim, if for no other reason to get it off of my mind. What he did from that point on, I really wouldn't care.

    It's probably nothing, if she really thought it was Tim she wouldn't have taken 5 years to get around to asking.

  3. I actually did not see that coming. Nice one.

  4. ahahahahahahahaha! Jesus, I love this blog.

  5. Yeah. I figured the emailer was working her way through the family, and it was OP's turn.
