Ah, the moment it moves from Yahoo email to Yahoo instant messaging - perhaps the most exciting moment in a deceptive online relationship.
Okay, so now as we're hopefully nearing the end of this predictable story, the only question that remains is how will Mary take credit for this happy ending. Did I miss the panel where, after creating her profile, Estelle hesitated before hitting the "join" button and Mary did it for her?
Apparently the time Estelle and the late Jimmy spent together before his retirement was NOT quality time.“Dear, what would you like for dinner today? Would you fancy going out for multicultural cuisine?” Said no one ever....Estelle [undisclosed surname]: the latest in Moy’s series of gullible women. (Wilbur Weston is the exception that proves the rule.)
Beautiful! Beautiful! Very attractive!
Yahoo shut down their IM a long while ago. I am surprised Estelle doesn't use Compuserve.
Wanders, you may have covered this in your hidden message, which I was unable to find today, but I am wondering if Silverdaters added the quote marks to Mr. Z's message or if he had put them there himself.
@Vince, I wondered about the quotation marks too. If they weren’t there, it would look like the entire message was from Arthur Z. and would give things an intriguing slant (especially the reference to “my late husband”).
Why aren't they using Wutsupp?
Estelle: Let's try this new app called Skype.Arthur: *** deletes account ***
"Your profile photo is very attractive. Now about those gift cards . . ."-- Scottie McW.
I read this thinking "who the heck even talks like this?" What is "multicultural cooking?" Why not just say "I enjoy Italian or Chinese or Thai". When I saw that Estelle worked in a jewelry store, I immediately thought of Wilbur and his 30K mistake. I see Estelle is going to do the same. He's going to say that he needs 30K to get back home. "Can you send it to me in gift cards as that is the only thing the airlines here will take?" I can't see Mary getting her out of this mess unless she knows someone in the FBI. Libby's just shaking her head over the stupidity of her owner.
Now that he knows Estelle worked in a jewelry store, perhaps AZ will find a way to work her into an international diamond heist, starting in Malaysia. Sort of like "Badlands" meets "Eat, Pray, Love". One can hope, anyway.
Monocled cat: "How long must I wait to see the cat videos begin????" Get on with it, woman!!"
Okay, let’s wrap this storyline up — Estelle’s gonna lose everything, but she’ll learn A Very Important Lesson about the futility of fighting her loneliness, and that the best she can possibly hope for is to die alone. Like poor, forgotten Aldo. Among others.At least Wilbur got to do some salsa dancing.
I'll bet Estelle's photo doesn't show her hairy knuckles.
@Sandi Ego, I missed Estelle’s knuckles this a.m. so took another look. Good sighting!Estelle is already falling into a romantic trance, perhaps picturing she and AZ on the cover of a bodice ripper for the silver generation. What AZ means is, “I’d like to hear the sound of your voice saying ‘I enclosied some extra cash with the money for the airfare, darling, so you can fly first class.’”
SUNDAYA human would say, "I'm a construction engineering manager," not this passive-voice weirdness. Estelle's falling for a bot. Libby looks put out. I think she's contemplating her next move.
Wow, the lack of comments shows I not the only one bored by the scintillating conversation.I agree with KitKat concerning the weird wording. This guy sounds shady to me.It would be funny if AZ says he hates cats and like Dr. Jeff, he has an over the top reactyto them.
You met him on a dating site. You've had four bad experiences with dating before him. This guy asks for your private contact info, and the first thing you ask him is is he likes cats?! You're headed for trouble, Estelle, and it won't be entirely because this guy's a schmuck.
What in the hell is 'Multicultural Cuisine'? I live in Portland and feel like of it were a real thing I probably would have heard of it by now. Moy has used it twice now.
World traveler and gourmand responds, "Why, yes, I've developed quite a taste for cats during my travels."
My bride and I enjoyed some multicultural dining last night. French mustard on our Polish hotdogs.-- S. McW.
@Doug, I agree. What the heck is “Multi-Cultural cuisine?” I live outside the other Portland (Portland ME, I’m assuming you’re in Portland OR) and it’s a big foodie town with any type of cuisine you can imagine-“multi-cultural” is not on any menu here.@anonymous 4:07: I was thinking the exact same thing.This guy’s English sounds so sketchy. Do they have Skype in Santa Royale? I guess not because these two are doing Yahoo IM messenger which no longer exists.
My husband and I like multicultural cuisine. If neither of us wants to cook, we order in Pizza or Chinese food.I think she's trying to say that she likes food from different cultures, but that's such a weird way to put it. Or maybe she likes fusion cuisine?
