March 3, 2015 The Afternoon

  1. I got hardly any sleep. It was one of those moments in your life that you just feel really good. We talked all night and really shared a lot of personal things with each other. She was very different than what I thought. She is not like she is on tv. There she is not as open. She is guarded and likes to keep it light. With me she was having fun but also had long deep conversations. I was intrigued by her. Even more so after the first phone call.

So we talked. I went to bed. I got up and went into work and tried to stay awake. I think I got 4 hours of sleep. It was brutal. But I was really feeling pretty good.

I did have birthday plans. I was supposed to go out to a restaurant where my friends had a dinner party waiting for me but I blew it off. Because I didn’t really want to go celebrate my birthday and I was enjoying the conversation. Later on that day Meri sent me a quote photo. And we started texting again. But briefly. Later on in the afternoon I called her and we talked for about 40 minutes. Discussing the disney trip.


This  the quote photo she texted to me to begin talking to me. Very cool, huh? It fits me perfectly.

We talked until 2:20 am on Twitter DM. I gave her my cellphone number and told her she should call and wish me a Happy Birthday. She said it’s after midnight where you are. I said well it’s not midnight in Hawaii yet. 10 minutes later she called. We talked for 4 minutes. She wished me  happy birthday. We chatted briefly. I was flirting. She was giggling. Then we got off the phone and I texted with her some of these texts back and forth until at 3:35am my time I finally went to bed. We had talked from 6:30pm the night before.

March 2, 2015 – My 42nd Birthday

0042 0050 0935 0938I had deleted all of my Twitter direct messages because she told me to. She didn’t want incriminating evidence. But what I had forgotten was all of these Twitter notifications went into my email. Which I pushed into a Twitter folder. That’s why I have these. It shows how we started talking to each other privately on Twitter DM. I screenshotted them to make it easier to read because on my phone it’s so small I couldn’t tell what it says.

After talking with Meri and one other person the night before, the night flipped into the next day. It was my 42nd birthday. Meri followed me on Twitter. I followed her back. She left me a direct message thanking me for a fun night. And to me that was it. I didn’t think we would talk anymore on twitter. I went to bed.

The next day I went into work and she direct messaged me again. Just wishing me a happy birthday. I said Thanks, you are very intriguing to me. That was all. Again, thinking okay well that was really nice of her. Now, that’s it, we won’t talk again.

I worked all day. Then she sent me another direct message later that evening. And we started talking for the next 8 hours. Up until 2:00am my time. At this point I was in Yukon Oklahoma living in my house and working in my OKC office. She was in Las Vegas so it’s a 2 hour time difference.

Here are some of the other direct messages. I’m working on getting my side to fit into between so you can see the whole conversation. I have to do one side at a time to figure out the time of each message.

I teased her late into the night and said you should call me and tell me Happy Birthday. It was a joke that went back and forth. I gave her my cellphone number. And she called me at 2:31am my time. We talked for 4 minutes.

This was our beginning. It was not what I was looking for. I was not expecting to become friends with her. And I did not target her. This was me, talking to a new friend. I have never cared that she’s Meri from tv. In fact it was harder that it was Meri from tv than if it was just Meri from Las Vegas. What we had was a very fast connection. It took us both by surprise. And it was awesome!
