Sharpen Those Quills

OK, Breakup Babies, here's your chance to shine.

I got a blow-off e-mail yesterday from, oh man, I can't even remember his acronym since we only went out once. Oh yes - Stud Athlete Software Boy (SASB)!

Anyway, SASB has ignored me since our one "date," a month ago, so I pretty much got the picture. BB is no dummy. But then, apparently, guilt overcame him so he sent me an e-mail which went on and on about how he'd been sick ("this morning woke up with my right eye gobbered shut"), travelling, skiing, etc. - and concluded thus:

"Looking ahead, I am not sure about having any time to get together in the near future, as much as I would like to. I think I have taken on a bit more than I can handle all ready and don’t want to spread myself much thinner."

He forgot to mention that he's been dating up a storm with other women, both from the online and offline worlds. (How do I know this? BB has her sources.)

So, do your part for humanity and help me come up with a clever, cutting, and oh-so-cool response that conveys just how lame it is to:

  1. Write such a note one month after the fact
  2. Make up such transparent excuses, and
  3. How little I actually care

Now this is no easy task, but I'm sure you're up to it. The winner gets a coffee date with Breakup Babe (the latte is on me!) ! If you live too far away, well, how about a personal note from me and a featured link on my blog! I know these, prizes have you drooling with excitement. But contain yourselves and help me come up with a good response.

I'm counting on you.

This blog was the inspiration for my novel. It helped me get through a horrible breakup and kept me entertained for years. But all good things must come to an end. I will recycle oldies but goodies from the archives here, but will blog about about writing here, and about all kinds of other stuff here.
