I'd rather plan a theme party than throw a keg in my apartment and call it a party. Rather than bar hopping, you can find me bookshelf browsing at Borders. I prefer a good brunch with friends over a happy hour jaunt. You can see me cupcaking over clubbing.
Does that make me a nerd?
Last night I was speaking with a friend (I'll leave her identity as anonymous to save her) and we got to discussing how we think that some of our friends are laughing behind our backs. Just because we like to enjoy the little things in life.
I made over two dozen chocolate cupcakes last night. You may remember that I don't even like chocolate, that much. I did it because I wanted to broaden my range. So, I tried out Billy's Chocolate Cupcake recipe; licked the spoon and bowl clean of batter and buttercream; decorated them and then sent out a mass text to all my local friends telling them to stop on by for a cupcake at any time.
Am I the only one in the world that responds to any communications directed towards me? I even reply back to forward joke e-mails; a simple 'ha ha' just to let the person know I got it and thought it was funny. Text me and I'll reply, no matter what. It may take awhile, but I'll do it. Why? Because you took the time to text me. I'm just so big on reciprocating communication it is unreal.
If you don't get a response from me; it means I never got it.
So, let's say I sent this text out at 6PM, last night.
It is now 9AM, the next morning.
Let's say I sent it out to at least ten people.
Not one reply. Not one.
Were they all busy?
I may be too paranoid in thought thinking that they are laughing behind my back.
"Will she ever stop?"
"I am so sick and tired of her and her damn cupcake making"
Who can resist these?
Just for the record, I'm not mad or upset that no one replied back. Seriously. People are busy. It was around dinner time. I don't live that close to any one of my friends.
But still...a reply, last night would have been okay. I still cannot shake the feeling that the joke is definitely on me. Why?
