Talk about kicking a girl when she's down. Geez.
At first I just wanted to forget that Sunday ever happened, that there was never a football game that my favorite team never lost. But if that was the case, I would have forgotten about the best thing EVER to happen to me on Twitter. EVER!!
I have two Twitter accounts. One for @LatchkeyWife, and one for my real life shit that I use for following work crap and all my various sports people -- we'll call it @lkwreallife for short. So since it was Super Bowl Sunday and all, I was obsessed with all the sporty tidbits in my timeline while watching the 817 hours of pre game.
At one point, Jimmy Fallon came on the pre game and I innocently tweeted: I have such a crush on @jimmyfallon
Cute + Funny = Rawr
And then the interviewer asked Jimmy what team he would be rooting for and he says he's going with the Giants.
So I tweeted: Until he said he's rooting for the Giants. I've retracted my crush. @jimmyfallon
Not five minutes later my phone dings with a Twitter alert that says @jimmyfallon is now following @lkwreallife
HOLY FUCKING CHRIST ON A CRACKER!!!!!! Are you fucking serious right now???
And seconds after that, I get another alert that says @jimmyfallon has sent you a direct message.
At this point, I'm vibrating (twss) with excitement. I have never gotten a tweet from someone famous. The closest I've come was when one of my favorite sports talk guys that I listen to every morning tweeted me back and I totally squealed like a little girl. But this... this was different.
I opened my DMs to find this message from @jimmyfallon: Say it ain't so. I still love Brady and the boys.
I. AM. DEAD.
I replied: Uh huh. Nice try. I will reinstate my crush if the Pats win the Super Bowl.
He wrote back: Deal.
FUCKING DEAD. AGAIN.
I sent him another DM after the Patriot lost that said: Oh well, I guess we'll just have to be friends. But I never heard from him again. I'm sure he's just distraught because he thinks I was serious about retracting my crush on him. Even if he is a Giants fan, I could never quit him... he's just too damn cute. And funny. And for me, most of the time funny is even sexier than cute.
Jimmy, if you happen to stumble upon this post, tweet me. Don't be bothered.
I still love you. (And your tree friend.)
