Dear Marcus,

This is Marcia, Bettina’s friend. We met at Wesley’s Halloween party last weekend at the Trench. I had a great time talking to you and wanted to see if you’d like to grab a drink or dinner sometime this weekend. I would’ve called but after writing your phone number and email on my hand, the number got smudged. So email me or give me a call at  555.0177.

-Marcia

Hey – you’ve got the wrong email address – this is MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com

Marcus,

This is Marcia. We met at Wesley’s party last weekend. I tried emailing you yesterday but somehow my email got rerouted to someone else. I just wanted to make sure I had the right email address.

MrMoonlight again – wrong email again – you sure Marcus gave you the right email address – what’s the address – is it something close, like MsMoonlight?

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com> at Tues, Oct 30, 2012 at 12:26 PM

To: Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com>

Not even close. His email is TheSanityAssassin@hopscotch.com

You’re trying to go out with a guy named The Sanity Assassin? How much do you know about this guy? And you met him at a skeazy place like the Trench (you’re in St. Louis?) Maybe the universe is trying to keep you from being murdered by sending your emails to me instead of him

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com> at Tues, Oct 30, 2012 at 12:57 PM

To: Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com>

It’s a song, jackass, and an emaik address doesn’t equal a personality. And the Trench isn’t skeazy, prude (yeah, I’m talking about the Trench in St. Louis).

Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com> at Tues, Oct 30, 2012 at 1:19 PM

To: Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com>

Fair enough – so now why do you think his emails are coming to me?

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com> at Tues, Oct 30, 2012 at 1:21 PM

To: Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com>

Beats me. All my other emails go tothe proper addresses. Are you getting any other emails for him?

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com> at Tues, Oct 30, 2012 at 1:24 PM

To: Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com>

Nope – nothing – just tried emailing The Sanity Assassin – didn’t bounce back yet – no response either.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com> at Tues, Oct 30, 2012 at 2:02 PM

To: Marcus Ash <TheSanityAssassin@hopscotch.com>

Just testing to see if this goes to the right ot wrong address.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com> at Tues, Oct 30, 2012 at 2:10 PM

To: Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com>

Test email came to me – no response to my email from TSA either – where did you plan on taking him anyway?

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com> at Tues, Oct 30, 2012 at 2:15 PM

To: Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com>

What do you mean? For thr date?

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com> at Tues, Oct 30, 2012 at 2:17 PM

To: Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com>

Yeah

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com> at Tues, Oct 30, 2012 at 2:21 PM

To: Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com>

I don’t know. I hadn’t thought that far ahead. I figured I’d let him decide.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com> at Tues, Oct 30, 2012 at 2:22 PM

To: Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com>

Very classic – very quaint

Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com> at Tues, Oct 30, 2012 at 2:40 PM

To: Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com>

You’re kind of an asshole.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com> at Tues, Oct 30, 2012 at 2:43 PM

To: Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com>

And yet you keep emailing me.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com> at Fri, Nov 2, 2012 at 10:31 AM

To: Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com>

Any luck with TSA – haven’t seen any other emails or had any responses

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com> at Sat, Nov 3, 2012 at 12:11 PM

To: Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com>

No, nothing. Not sure why I’m telling you this. Not sure why yoy care.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com> at Sat, Nov 3, 2012 at 3:12 PM

To: Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com>

Look – I was being kind of an asshole – sorry about that – was looking at you more as an email address than a person.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com> at Sat, Nov 3, 2012 at 4:04 PM

To: Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com>

Very nice. But don’t worry about it.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com> at Mon, Nov 5, 2012 at 11:27 AM

To: Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com>

None of my business but – any luck? Feel sort of invested after being an asshole.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com> at Mon, Nov 5, 2012 at 11:54 AM

To: Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com>

Nope. ANd it’s nice of you to be kind now and all but it’s really not necessary. These things happen and I barely even knew the gyuy anyway.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com> at Tue, Nov 6, 2012 at 3:49 PM

To: Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com>

So – if you barely knew the guy and you don’t have any plans this weekend – do you want to get together with me for a drink?

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com> at Tue, Nov 6, 2012 at 3:56 PM

To: Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com>

I don’t know anything about you! You don’t know anything about me!

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com> at Tue, Nov 6, 2012 at 4:02 PM

To: Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com>

Didn’t stop you from asking Bradley out

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com> at Tue, Nov 6, 2012 at 4:11 PM

To: Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com>

I at least met him at a party and we talked for… maybe twenty minutes. Way different! I only know your name from your email tag!

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com> at Tue, Nov 6, 2012 at 5:35 PM

To: Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com>

Fair enough – figured it couldn’t hurt to give it a shot.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com> at Fri, Nov 9, 2012 at 1:01 PM

To: Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com>

You know, I was thinking that it was actually kind of sweet, you asking me out. Still a  little weird, but nice. If you’re still free this weekend, maybe we can get together.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com> at Mon, Nov 12, 2012 at 8:59 AM

To: Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com>

Hey – sorry for not getting back to you – ended up going out of town with some friends. Next weekend? Saturday? How about Stone’s Throw?

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Marcia Haskins <poisonpen@hopscotch.com> at Mon, Nov 12, 2012 at 10:09 AM

To: Bradley Murphy <MrMoonlight@hopscotch.com>

Saturday’s good for me. I had a place in mind though. You still have my number from that first email?
