Boy crush.

February 14, 2011


I was stymied for a post idea tonight, and the best I could come up with was to tell you about the spare can of deodorant I bought to keep at school (because sometimes you just forget in the morning, y’know?), and Lloyd said that was TMI.

Instead, he suggested that I write something about his reply from David Segal.

Lauren: “Steven Segal wrote you a letter?”

Lloyd: “No, David Segal. He’s a writer for the New York Times. Check the e-mail.”

So I did. Um, there was no message.

This is what Gmail looks like.

Lauren: “Um, there is no message.”

Lloyd: “It’s just the subject line.”

Lauren: (squints to read it) “Awwww. What is he thanking you for? Are you his valentine?”

Lloyd: “Hmmpf. No. I wrote him a letter to tell him that I liked his article.”

Lauren: “Was it a love letter to tell him you like-liked his article?”

Lloyd: “Just write your stupid deodorant story.”

    No link to the article?

    That’s cool that he wrote back. And it wasn’t a form letter! All my representatives ever send back to me are form letters.

    I wrote to Anderson Cooper once after reading his book. I think the book was GREAT! He’s a fantastic writer! I received a form reply as well. It started with something funny, which I now forget, explaining the reason for the form reply. That’s Anderson…Keepin’ ‘Em Honest!

    I keep a spare deodorant at work -- sometimes I forget, and sometimes I think I forget and that’s just as bad.

    I don’t think that’s TMI, Lauren.
