Probable Object of Regret #1958370: Or, What I Did on National Coming Out Day

An MSN conversation, to the best of my recollection
The previously mentioned, girl-who-seems-to-really-like-me was brought up.

Person I was chatting with (we'll call this one, "Flossy"): You looove her.
Me: No I don't
Flossy: Yes you do
Me: No. You are so off the mark, it's not even funny.

(Because 1), it was her crushing on me; 2) I'm gay; and 3) To make it even better, I happen to find "her" not-so-secretive-ex-crush mind-witheringly cute. I think I've mentioned that somewhere else, though...)

Me: Actually, it is funnny. I laugh at you.
Flossy: Oh, you sooo do!+(something-unintelligible-in-netspeak)
Me: you're talking in code
Flossy: sure am
Flossy: the code of love

Me: Hm.
Flossy: What?
Me: On a somewhat related note...
(Long pause)
Flossy: ???
Flossy: ?????

Me: Happy National Coming Out day! *tweet!*
(Two picoseconds later)
Me: Well, ciao. g2g, bye!

I know, I'm a coward for leaving so soon. And that that very wasn't all that dramatic. And if it was, there might very well be hell to pay, later. But, you know, I don't actually think an outing would be all that bad. It'd be a nice way to let that crusher over there know that she should, for her sake and mine, go back to liking the hot one.

Seriously. Please?

Oh. What? Just like that?

Oh. What? Just like that? She. You. Crush. Not. Articulate. Lost. What?! I bet she'll get over it, or kill you.

I think you misinterpreted. The chatee and the crusher are two entirely different people. Unless I'm misinterpreting you as misinterpreting...

Way to go on coming out to someone! :) Even if it wasn't very dramatic, it's probably dramatically liberating on some level for you! To really get her thinking, you could've found some pictures of boys kissing and sent them to her and THEN logged off. Except that could almost be more obvious than "Happy National Coming Out Day!" haha.

Flossy sounds like a unique choice of (temporary?) nick-name for the girl haha. Is there one you call brushy because her hair needs it/is impeccably well-brushed?

You're Amazing.

Flossy, or so I've collected, is a name generally associated with cows...
