not so clever

one time i had this girl's email address from a message she'd sent to a large list of people. at the time, i wanted her phone number and was planning to ask her out. i wrote her and said:

"i find myself in rather desperate need of your phone number"

she gave it to me. i called her. when we went out, she asked:

"how did you get my email address?"

i'm not sure why i thought it made a difference whether i got her number by emailing her or some other way.

At least you didn't hit "reply all" and send it to the whole group.
