ME: Glad that you're enjoying the best city ever!
LIL' BIT: Hell yeah. Ps my mom is totally going to (the show)...she does consulting for (a company)...
ME: Well, I'll be there...along with (my friends)...
LIL' BIT: Well if you see her say hi...she will probably lose it if the cool kids recognize her. :-D
ME: I will!
LIL' BIT: Thanks! Ps are you back with Maxine?
ME: Yes. Officially, two months. Unofficially, five.
LIL' BIT: Okay. Cool. Just want to avoid the rumor mill.
ME: What rumor mill?
LIL' BIT: It is just always best to go directly to the source. I'm sure you had a reason for not telling me.
ME: I know that i mentioned this before.
She didn't write back.
