For the past week or so someone has been doing some in-depth research here on iwilldare.com about the TTHM. I don’t know who it is. It’s been fascinating watching the mystery searcher plunder through seven years of archives.
The mystery searcher is not the legendary TTHM. I asked him. This has, of course made the mystery all that much more tantalizing.
While following the search today I ran into long unread posts like this one about the first e-mail the TTHM ever sent me. Let me tell you, this was exactly not the thing I needed today.
I’ve had a bad day. It was one of those days that decimated me. I was up early to make an 8 a.m. meeting that decided not to start until 8:15 and it just got worse from there. I had shitty meeting after shitty meeting, and when I wasn’t in a meeting I was staring hard at my computer screen willing myself not to cry.
Stress does strange things to us. All of this is exacerbated by the fact that I never, ever sleep. Ever.
The day was so bad that I asked Sister #2 who is in the midst of a two-week vacation in Michigan for help. If you know me, you know that I’d rather eat rusty nails while listening to Barefucking Naked Ladies with Gwen Stefani then ask for help.
I checked the mail before I rolled into Supergenius HQ after a 10.5 hour work day only to find a mystery Amazon package. I wrote it off at first, assuming it was the book I ordered for this fall’s Advanced Fiction class.
But it wasn’t. It was a book from the very same TTHM I’ve been talking about with a note that said, “Happy Anniversary Darling.”
Upon seeing that note, I lost it. I sat in Ruby bawling like a baby. It was exactly the thing I needed today.
