Do you remember my former professor who had not accepted my facebook friendship? Today, he turned up again in my newsfeed with a status that he's coming to Dallas this week. What could I do? I sent him an in-box message pestering him for not accepting me while callously posting about a trip to my city. Apparently, he's speaking at a university and attending a conference at the Fed with a Nobel winner, and so what! What about me?
He wrote back (surprise! yay!) saying he doesn't have a clue who I am (huh? boo!) and he doesn't accept stalkerish strangers.
I said, "Stalkerish? Take a look at THIS" and I sent him the link to my post.
He started to feel guilty (um, yeah) and accepted my friend request. Hold onto your hat: he offered to get together while he's in town this week. (OMG is all I can say and I rarely say OMG. Being a creepy, annoying, pathetic whiner worked for me. Victory!)
He said I should call him. He also said he doesn't have a cellphone...
This is my rock and roll love letter to you.
