Busted

Picture me at my desk at work. Wednesday afternoon. Shirt untucked, tie undone. Remnants of lunch can be seen on my collar and tie. Windows open because lunch didn't really agree with me if you know what I mean. In comes one of my assistants who drops off a a nice sized Tiffany box with a card attached. My real name on the outside. No one ever sends me anything but nasty letters so this makes a nice change.

I took a photo of the writing in the card, and was just going to post it, then realized someone might recognize the handwriting, and so will just reproduce it word for word here.

Dear Ent, (real name on outside of card, Ent on the inside)

Yesterday I got an e-mail telling me about a really funny Sesame Street article I should read. I clicked the link and found your site. After reading the Sesame St. article, I decided to take a look around since I had never been. At one point, I came across the most amazing story about the time I got stuck in traffic and how you came to my rescue. I'm happy to know that you find me so enticing and presume that our shared secret will stay just that.

Love,

__________(her first name)

P.S. You drank way more than me. Enjoy the gift.

Inside the box was a flask with both sets of our initials.

This was definitely a first, and this is why I tend to stay away from talking about myself except as to events that happened further in the past. The good thing about the letter was the shock to my heart was such that I think some arteries became unblocked.

So does Katherine Heigel have nice handwriting? It sounds as though she did a good job in choosing your gift (and has a good sense of humor for taking your post about her misadventures so well).

Wife number 6 or 7, I can't remember which is next.

LMAO! Poor ENT, call her and take her out to dinner to make it up to her.

And I am guessing we'll never get a reveal on that little BI. ;-)

jax said...

LOL!

kellysirkus said...

do you both have the same initials?
the detective in me never dies.
I'm going to get out the Parker Directory and look for KH initialled attorneys to start.

DNfromMN said...

kelly, he said that it has both "sets of initials", which doesn't necessarily mean they're the same. It's a cool thought though.

Love the wife 6/7 comment!

Maybe the reports of her being a bitch are overrated? Maybe she's just got a passive-aggressive sense of humor?

Jewels said...

Okay, I can really appreciate someone who'll go to the trouble of getting you a gift to commemorate the event. She's funny! Now I want to know who she is, just because I think it would really up her cool factor. ;)

Harriet Hellfire said...

Agreed - she took it well! Too bad we'll probably never find out who it is now...

kevin said...

Whoa, looks like lotsa Canucks like CDAN.

Dave said...

Hats off to the mystery woman, maybe she'll become a future spy? :)

jax said...

Hell ya Kevin!

holla for Canada! woop woop..lol and im not even high.

YET.

Caroline said...

Bwahahahaha. Kudos to her for being cool about it and sending a gift.

JustinD said...

Whatever.

If this were true, no reasonable person with a job would continue the site much less post about how he got caught.

Am I the only one who thought the note sounded more threatening than nice?

Jackie said...

Can someone link the blind item that Ent is referring to? It sounds vaguely familiar, but I can't find it on the site! Thanks.

Brenda22 said...

jackie, just do a search with "what did you do on your Friday night" or something like that. It was around October 15 or so.
Ent, now I know that story was complete BS. You really want us to believe that this actress not only stumbled on this site, but looked around for so long that she actually came across that blind about her being stuck in traffic. People who've read it before have a hard time finding the item, how could the actress just coincidentally have come across it? I love your site and have a great time reading your items, but please...try to make them a little more believable.
