Very Vague Dispatch from L.A. – #1

“I love you.”

“I love you.”

“Let’s get married.”

“I have a better idea. Let’s walk into the middle of a highway, hand in hand, waiting for a eighteen-wheeler to run us over!”

    They both said almost exactly the same thing.

    … so, it went well then ?

    I’m a little confused, Neil.

    Was it Sophia who wanted to get married, or was it she who wanted to be run over by a truck?

    Doubtless, this was your literary conceit, in stucturing the post so.

    (Though “let’s walking” suggests a Russian voice.)

    Maybe it’s not important. The result: you’re both single, and happier for it.

    Or, Neilochka, would you rather be run over by a truck together, or hitch-hike alone?

    Thank the Dockers.

    They might be hiding a bulge, which your gay buddies could hep y’all out with.

    Just sayin’.

    P.S. Diane Mandy of Rheinland-Pfälz, you might like to weigh in on this one.

    Stop being so vague! How are things going, really?

  6. Nancy

    Line looks familiar, I think I did that once or thrice.

    I expect this is Neil’s polite way of saying, ‘No comment at this time. Talks are still underway.’

    awwwwwwh. I do so love a romantic road trip story. Will there be dancing? I’m crossing my fingers for a Bollywood ending, if you please.

  9. Annie

    Oh, I can’t top the other Annie’s comment, just too funny, but I am wishing you well and I hope things get better. XOXO

    Dude, you must be sad. I think you meant “walk” not “walking”, and eighteen-wheeler, not four-wheeler. Unless you meant car, win which case you should have said car.

    Cheer up. Write. Live to tell the tale.

    And that I posted twice, trying to correct “win” to “in” means that I’m sad, too. Now three posts. Because I am commiserating.

    Is that you and Sophia in the photo or just some random people unwittingly borrowed from the intarwebs?

  14. Neil

    Jane- changed to your lines. Much better.

    Caffeinatrix – That is not us. I would never wear those sneakers.

  15. PockeyCT

    From the picture only one person will be hit by the truck. That is usually the case don’t you think?

  16. Sarah

    tis a bit like life…

    I am so confused. That being said, if you’re getting married MAZEL TOV.

    If you’re not, MAZEL TOV too.

    Things happen, or don’t, for a reason.

  18. better safe than sorry

    the photo is nice, happy, sunny, but the words, not so much vague, but sad with the hint of disaster in the future. be safe you two and get off the road.

  19. barbetti

    I agree. No more vagueness please.

  20. followthatdog

    either this is proof that natural selection works in a variety of ways, or you need to quit being vague. Hope things are going well. And not in the middle of a freeway.

    Hey, let me know when you’re back and NYC and we can finally hang out. In the meantime, good luck avoiding turning into roadkill!

  24. ExpatJane

    Ha! :::enough said:::

    Ha! Funny! That’s how I felt until I met my husband. So far so good. We are much older than most newlyweds… 😉
