Mimi Wants To Play Scrabble (Wake up and smell the sarcasm)


And now for a reality check.
Enter with me, if you will, into the insane world of online dating. This bachelor just put a Proceed With Caution sign on his profile in big, bold alphabet letters. He writes...
(P.S. This is a paragraph from an actual dating profile)

""Lust and Like are good words. The other "L" word takes some time to actually pronouce for me. ........Looking for a woman who likes simular t.v. shows, knows how to dance, you know the really important stuff. Are you getting this or are you a blonde ? No offense to you blondes, you understand. Its just a "word" thingy."

(My response)

They're all perfectly wonderful four-letter wordies. I know!
Let's play Scrabble on our first and last date.

L words....4 letters....hhmmm.......

How about l-a-m-e.

aLONE (ooops. That's 5. I cheated)

Loon?
Are you getting this?! No offense.

While you're learning to pronounce "the other L word" I'll just be on my way. Got to get those roots touched up. I know somewhere there's a guy who's not afraid of a lil old word like......

L - A- C - E


Uhh.....that is what you meant. Right?

What's that? No, you may not jump me.
This is Scrabble, not Checkers.

NEXT.

Oh geez. What the heck is going on with men? Or we could blame all the women before this moment that didn't put him in his place.

"This is Scrabble, not Checkers."

Ha!!!!!

Sandee said...

You're going to let this gem get away? Bwahahahahahaha.

Have a terrific day and weekend. Big hug. :)

Patti said...

I have a five-letter 'L' word for him:

"loser"

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

I bet you can't wait...

Akelamalu said...

He sounds 'lost'!

feefifoto said...

Did you really post that response? Please oh please say you did. I'll be so disappointed if you didn't.

Mimi Lenox said...

Summer - I would say the insanity is equal depending on the baggage at hand. MMmmmaayyybe.

Sigh.

Mimi Lenox said...

Southern - One "ha!!!"
Thank you!

Mimi Lenox said...

Sandee - I'm afraid I must. He's just not my type. But then again, what IS my type?
I am so confused!!!!

Mimi Lenox said...

Princess Patti - Perfect! Ha!

Mimi Lenox said...

Bud - Can hardly stand it.

Mimi Lenox said...

Akelamlau - Ha! Another good one!

Mimi Lenox said...

Fee - I wouldn't touch that guy's profile email with a ten-foot pole. He's the type that would take it as a compliment!

Do you see what I'm up against here?!!!

Mojo said...

You do find some winners don't you? Maybe you could introduce him to one of the Bookstore Police. That should be interesting.

And for the record, I'm not afraid of lace. I like lace! I mean I don't wear it myself or anything, but I like it on the right person.

I've said to much.

Homer The Palace Dog said...

Dear Fellow Bloggy Friends - This is not going to be a pleasant weekend in the castle. Please send a rescue team. I am begging you. Queen is not in a good mood.

H-E-L-P.

Mimi Lenox said...

Mojo - Smile.

The Gal Herself said...

This post should be MANDATORY reading for every single person who believes that nothing is worse than being alone.

Mimi Lenox said...

Gal - Oh there are things MUCH worse than being alone. Having said that, I'd love to be in a relationship. That doesn't mean I'm going to settle for THIS.
Not.
Never.

Patti said...

Poor Homer..I hope he survives Saturday and Sunday.


glad I could make you smile ;-) I try

Charles Gramlich said...

I like your "l" words. Excellent response!

Julie said...

Oh good golly! I'm not sure about this dating site Queen Mimi.

My word verification is "comet"...either this potential date (NOT) need to scrub up with some or be hit by one!

Sheesh! **rolls eyes**

Ferd said...

I Lol'd.
A Lady Like you can Lump a Lame Lunk Like this Limp Loon!

Mimi Lenox said...

Patti - Homer has stolen my Facebook password again and is wreaking havoc in the blogosphere.
I'm gonna ship that dog off to....to....somewhere cold.

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - Spoken like a true cowboy.

Mimi Lenox said...

Julie - He is not a "potential date"...YUK. YUK.
A man who can't even say LOVE.
I think not.

Mimi Lenox said...

Ferd - I L-O-V-E it.
