A 'Conversation'

A little bit of background.  First, I have many 'imaginary, fake' friends that I have met through hockey blogs and Twittering about hockey.  Basically, they are a bunch of 'kids' who allow me to hang around and interact with them through the interwebs.  One of my favorite people is Tyler, a recent college graduate from lower Michigan.  He keeps me laughing for hours with the things he writes.  He is witty, often profane, and can paint hilarious pictures with words that are not to be believed.  (Sadly, I don't know if his hockey blog would be funny to non-hockey fans, though.)  He is one of my favorite people on the Web.

A new (?) site on the Web is called formspring.me.  It seems to be a cross between Twitter (you can link your Twitter account to it) and Facebook.  Once you have signed up for an account, people can ask you questions and you answer them.  Simple as that.  For me to have an account, not so interesting.  For someone like Tyler to have one, lots of fun.  And that is where our conversation comes in.

My question to Tyler was this:
Being as tall as you are, do you even realize that people my size (5'0") exist? Do you even SEE us? ;)  (He is at least 6'4" tall.)

His answer:
Oh no -- my grandma figured out how to use a computer. And connect to the nearest wireless network, open a browser, track me down even though I've left scarce clues as to who I actually am in real life, discover formspring when even 24 hours ago I would've guessed that it's a mattress company, and pose this question.

Hi grandma, I see you down there!


Then, we progressed from there onto Twitter.

Me:  By the way, I asked the height question. And I very well MAY be as old as grandma. :D
Tyler:  If u are 80 and a fully functioning Internet person - I think we should get married today. I don't know why. I don't question love.

The kid cracks me up.  I wish I was as quick-minded as some of the people I interact with.  :D


**By the way, if you look over here <------- you will see that I now have a formspring account.  If you have questions, ask away.**
