A conversation between my mother and myself (regarding the fellow I was seeing briefly in September):
Isa: So what happened to the folk musician?
Me: Dunno. I guess we’re done. I haven’t heard from him in 3 weeks and he ignored a text message I sent him 2 weeks ago.
Isa: He is probably busy.
Me: (rolling eyes unseen): I doubt it – if he were into me he’d find a way to get in touch. No, he’s blowing me off.
Isa: You don’t know that.
Me: Well, all the signs are there.
and then (wait for it):
Isa: Maybe he had diarrhea.
Me: Uh, for 3 weeks?
And now, ladies, the eagerly awaited sequel to “He’s Just Not That Into You,” hitting stores next week: “He’s Just Not That Into You … Or He Has Diarrhea.”
Absurd … or brilliant?
