Twenty minutes later we were on the sites instant messaging page and chatting away. Of course, my part of the conversation always has to be a bit guarded. There’s only so much I can say. I usually tell people that I’m a contractor for a private company. When people have problems I go and take care of them.
I asked Maggie, “What do you like to do for fun?”
Maggie said, “I took a mechanic class. Nothing serious. Just the basics. So that I could take care of myself and others if I need to. I also like botany and learning about plants and their uses. You’d be amazed at all of the things you can do with them.”
I asked, “what is the useful thing you’ve used a plant for?”
Maggie said, “ohh if I told you, I’d have to kill you. Ha-ha!”
Maggie asked me, “Your work sounds like it might be fun. Tell me about your most recent job.”
I said, “If I told you I would have to kill you.” Maggie laughed.
I said, “Seriously. I totally would.” Maggie laughed even harder.
Because I seriously would. Maggie seems like a nice girl. The plant thing seems interesting. I would hate to have to Steve and Joe her.
We’re planning on meeting when I leave this hovel and go back to civilization.
I know you’re always taking chances when meeting people online. But, people can be crazy that you meet in person too.
