And Then I Died From Embarrassment

For those of you who have not done the whole myspace thing let me give you a little m.s. 101. When you are online on myspace if you look in the right hand column of your page you can see the profile picture of any of your myspace friends that are also online at that time. Under your friend's profile picture are the words 'online' and under that is a link to click on to send that friend a message.

While on myspace the other day I saw that my good friend April was online. I owed her a message and so I clicked on 'send a message' and sent April a silly little note that started off with a friendly "Hey Bebe!"

The next day I received an email letting me know I had a myspace message from Brandon, April's husband. I thought that was strange because Brandon never emails me. Then thought maybe April had just been online under Brandon's account and emailed me. So I checked. What I found was a very polite reply to my flirtatious message that I had sent to BRANDON - NOT TO APRIL! It seems that when I had been online the day before I saw an adorable picture of Jeep, April and Brandon's son. A photo of Jeep happens to be April's profile picture and so I had not even looked at the name. I saw a picture of Jeep and thought, "Cool, April's online," and shot her the note. As it turns out Brandon also uses a picture of Jeep as his profile picture and he was the one online, the one I had sent the message to. You know girls, a 'Hey Bebe' between women is a silly innocent thing. Directed at a women's husband, it may be received as you hitting on husband. Brandon was very sweet to reply with a quick note but I am sure he was wondering why in the world his wife's crazy friend was so boldly flirting with him. I emailed April back right away.

"Your husband might... might, think I have the hots for him. I am bright red and going to go crawl into a hole and die now. I'll miss you, it's been nice knowing you."

I will now be checking, rechecking, and then checking again to see if I am emailing the right person before using such words as Bebe, darling, hot stuff, etc...

  1. Oh no! That sounds like something I would do! How embarrassing. I haven't actually done that one... yet. I also have a MySpace page, so I'll be extra careful from now on. Haha.

  2. I was on the phone with my boss one time and as I hung up I said, "OK. Bye. Love you."

    Ah crud. That was totally embarrassing!

    I'm sure your friends understand.

    Don't stress too much.

    Of course they are totally laughing their butts off at the mistake behind your back I'm sure. :-)

  4. My hubby sent HIS friend a suggestive im from my account one day so he would think it was me - way embarassing. Fortunately, all of our friends know both of us, and he knew the comment came from my husband and not me. Phew. Disaster averted.

    I was thoroughly mortified until I knew he knew it wasn't me. I feel for you.
