Hello there. I'm Carl, Cat's friend from college. She invited me to join here and I finally made it! Y'all won't believe what happened to me last night, but here goes...
First, Cat actually calls ME! She sounded so bubbly and happy I thought maybe her mom and her aunt gave her permission to date me.
She invites me to join. That's what she was so happy about! So, I'm trying to get the laptop tether to my phone to work, she's barking orders on how to find this forum, what to do, and I've just barely gotten online when she says, "Are you in the website yet?"
Geez! I'm like, "Geez, Cat, give me a minute, willya?" So she laughs at me and says, "Oh, you boys are so slow of things!" (She really talks funny, and we love it!) I finally pull up the website, try to join, and she's gone off in another fourteen directions of who's who, who does what, blah, blah blah, and I totally screw up my first application. I wait for the email and it doesn't come. Cat's really wound up by this time, so she tells me to try again. Obviously, I did.
This time, she's reading some posts to me as I am trying to spell my email address correctly (for the third time) and something totally got her attention. Somebody used the word "vet," like in "vetting" a political candidate. She sounded like she hit a wall. She goes, "What is this vet? I do not know of this. I vet my dog and cats, yes? Do they think you are an animal? I do not know of this. This is very odd."
Y'all probably won't believe this, but it's so like Cat to do that when she gets whacked by something she doesn't know. After I stopped laughing, I explain what's meant by the word (verb) "vet." She goes, "Well, so. You must be very much of yourself, so they will approve of you for me."
I promise I'll behave, and finally I get in. By then, with Cat going off on another tangent about seeing her aunt kissing her boyfriend and how gross that was, I am really tired and I promise her I'd post my intro tonight.
So, here I am. I'm really glad to have something to share with Cat. I like to cook, and I've had some tastes of Cat's cooking. She's an awesome cook. We're not really dating but her aunt and her mom said they'd let me come over, so that's a start. So, that's where we're at now.
