Once upon a time, I set up Emily and Tyler and they got married and now they have an adorable little baby, and *I* have overconfidence in my ability to set people up. So, upon sending an AMAZING set up email today…I decided I should pull one out from the archives. They didn’t fall in love and have babies like Ty and Em, but…you certainly can’t blame my email. It’s the 2nd best set up email I’ve ever written.
So without further ado.. (names changed to protect the innocent)
Subject: Allow me to e-troduce…
Daisy, I met Chuck 2 years ago at a bar while I was mumbling out loud about football and we became fast friends. He’s a true water sport guy – spends the year mentally training for his annual outrigger race in Hawaii. He also misses my yearly fleet week party because he plays in his HS’s annual alumnae water polo game. (I know. Red flag. Missing Kristen’s party? Priority problem!!!!).
Chuck – I met Daisy at a bar in Menlo Park over salmon tacos and girly conversations. Since then, she’s moved around the country but has recently joined us in SF. We reconnected while both in a cowboy-themed wedding where I was a reader and dance enthusiast. Most recently, Daisy knocked it out of the park in a 1920′s flapper costume at an NYE party we both attended. While only one of us could win the ‘best acting’ award for the night (me), her enthusiasm and sparkly headband made me wish there was a best costume award.
Hey! What are you doing next Thursday? Did you know the California Academy of Sciences has a $12 entry fee, a DJ and a pretty fun nightlife scene every Thursday night? Let’s all go!!!! Shoot. I’m busy. OK. Just the 2 of you then.
