@Stevie I have had this happen more than once around Herald Sq, but I have mostly perfected my annoyed sigh/"REALLY?"
@abigailnicole "I worked in a herpes lab for three years" would make a great title for a Billfold post. Just sayin'.
Neal Stephenson came up with the far superior version of this in Snow Crash. An insertible Vagina Dentata that would sting an unwelcome penis with a massive dose of sleeping agent.
@j.a.b. They like bananas! Aww.

East Coast - London for 2 years. I actually didn't struggle that much figuring out time difference stuff, he was 5 hours behind me. We also both had office jobs and spent all day on gchat. Regular skype sessions on the weekends and evenings where I was willing to stay up until he got home.

DC-Paris was hard -- we could only talk first thing in the morning or right after work, and always when one of us was just waking up or going to bed. But we survived and now we're married, the end. (I just put an extra clock widget on my phone screen, which cost $0 instead of $480).

Unfortunately, this describes most of my experience writing, so I don't even know if my admissions essays were actually cringeworthy or not.
@kellyography Boom. Now I know what I'll be doing with the next hour of my day.
