My phone buzzed. It was a text message:
OMG, he replied!!!!!
That was exciting. Ophelia had been fretting all weekend about emailing this guy on Okcupid. They were both pretty shy and nerdy, good match.
I put my soda down after taking another sip and replied.
That’s great! Wha’d he say?
She forwarded me the email. He was taken by the clever pun. Some people say puns are awful, but not this one.
I know because I wrote it.
Reply sent, I leaned back in my chair, took a sip of soda, and gave myself a pat on the back.
