One of my Twitter followers sent me an interaction she had on the meat market today:

“Oh no, a chipmunk has escaped from the forest! I’m calling pest control now…”

Now, I have seen her profile, and I don’t understand where this would have came from..  She is adorable, and even so much as got a message once that said:  “Your profile, I swear I’m going to print it out and post it on my fridge for all my friends to admire! Keep it up you adorable lil’ nerd.”

Personally, I think any guy could easily fall for her, because aside from being super cute,  she advertises in her profile that she has gone bungee jumping…. naked.

Anyway- she responded:

“I don’t get it… are you saying I have fat cheeks or am furry?”


“You exude an aura of mischievousness fused with a patina of happy-go-lucky.  In a word, a chipmunk.  Notice also that chipmunks are pretty mobile and like to scamper about hither and thither with rapidity…

List a couple of places you’ve lived before (says you’ve bounced around a bit on your profile)…”
Okay-  that’s kind of endearing..  He definitely took a shot in the dark with this message.   I, personally, probably would have not asked for clarification and would have been offended that he was calling pest control.    I am NOT a pest.  (Okay, I totally am.. but that’s beside the point.)
If nothing else of his message was good news:   At least he knows big words!

    I’d say he used a thesauraus but…. PATINA?? 1. a film or incrustation, usually green, produced by oxidation on the surface of old bronze and often esteemed as being of ornamental value. 2. a similar film or coloring appearing gradually on some other substance. 3.a surface calcification of implements, usually indicating great age…. still not finding this guy complimentary

    and half-way decent sentence construction. and in common usage a “patina” can be construed as a covering or shell…or a finish. at least he didn’t want to see his bodily fluids dripping from her nostrils. god, that is post i wish i had never read.
