The Scientist: Yeah, pretty much. Is that a problem?
Me: Not necessarily. I guess it depends on whether my type of snobbery intersects with your type of snobbery in the Venn diagram of snobbery.
TS: My type of snobbery includes appreciation for the "Venn diagram of snobbery."
Me: Oh. Well then maybe we're good.

The Scientist: I'm really glad you emailed me. So... do you have any sort of rules about calling?
TS: You know... Three days? Two days? Is that too soon? Does that freak you out?
Me: Oh. That. I hate those stupid rules. I was just talking about this with a friend today, actually... She thinks three days is entirely acceptable and that even a week is standard. Maybe I've just lucked out with the guys I've gone out with; maybe that fact that most communication is through email now speeds up the timeline. Whatever--usually they email me either the next day or not at all. Why would any man who actually wants to see me again wait a week to contact me and expect me to go out with him again??
Me: So, um, to answer your question...
TS: I'd better email you tomorrow.
(I think I might actually like this guy.)
