Thanks to some awesome readers, I learned that his name is Mike Nelson. After roughly three seconds of Internet sleuthing, I found him on Facebook and to my delight, we had five friends in common. I was so excited to find him that I decided to do nothing because I didn't know how to approach him. How do you tell a stranger that you've gushed about him publicly without sounding like a lunatic?
Well, last night I took the plunge and sent him a friend request which he graciously accepted. Then, I took a deep breath and sent him this message along with a link to the post I wrote:
This is gonna sound a little nutty, but I wrote a post about how cute you are on my site, Shmitten Kitten.
Two things: 1. I hope you get a kick out of it. 2. I really hope you don't take out a restraining order on me.
AnnaAnd he wrote back! He said:
Wow! I am beyond flattered, especially since you are basing my cuteness off a couple TV spots where I speak in monotone and dress in only shades of tan. For that, I am humbled and thank you very much.
I'm actually dating someone right now, so no go on the dating fantasies of us growing old together as we watch re-runs of Mr. Show and Marx Bros. movies. BUT, if you are open to having another guy friend (and I completely understand if you don't) you won't be disappointed. I have a feeling we would have lots in common and become fast friends. You are a talented lady and funny as shit! And in my world, poop is the best and the funniest.
Take care and thanks again, Anna.
MikeHow cool is that??? Sure, I was slightly bummed that he has a girl, but I'm more excited that he was so rad. So, everyone, dreams do come true. I have our newly forged friendship as proof.
