An actual g-chat conversation between me and "K":
(Please excuse the look of it. We all know IM's are no place for proper punctuation.)
K: did you read the main nytimes wedding story from sunday?
Me: no i'm not that insane. i don't read times announcements. they make me feel bad about myself.
K: but they're inspiring sometimes
usually about love overcoming obstacles
like the one about the guy who was engaged and broke up with his fiance for his true love
Me: oh yes that is so inspiring for the girl he dumped
Not quite Katherine Heigl in 27 Dresses, but you get the gist...
