Have you ever had one of those moments when you spot someone on the street, think you know them and when you start talking to them they turn out to be a complete stranger.
Pretty embarrassing, huh?
Well I think I may have just had one of those moments…online.
How can a person get mixed up online? Well I’ll tell you.
Your present protagonist, one nocturnal_tick, is happily perusing newstudent.org when he spots a certain gem3 has observed his profile recently. Curious, our young Mr. Tick checks her profile and finds, rather circumstantially, that she is the same age, from the same county and goes to the same University as one AngelicGemma. Logic and deduction begin to emerge and a little mouse smells cheese at the other end of the maze.
“Of course!” our young protagonist exclaims, “gem3 is none other than AngelicGemma”
So young Mr. Tick sends a friendly hello to his fellow doper, with a sly joke about sending it to the wrong person, and goes on his merry way. But alas, with all protagonists, a snag. It seems gem3 may be taking a Forensic Science course.
“Funny,” he thinks, “AngelicGemma isn’t studying that”
Realisation dawns on him. Perhaps the duo are not one, but a duo indeed and young Mr. Tick in his brash haste has come out with the proverbial egg all over his face. Face now rosy he turns to his only hope.
“AngelicGemma,” he cries into the electronic night, “Was that you?”
