I’m not really sure if this is only for Twitter users, but I don’t think so. I can’t imagine you wouldn’t appreciate it otherwise. So just read this, trust me: A foot and a half: Finally, A Use for Twitter:
Sean informed me a few days ago that he had been following “The Real Shaq” on twitter.
“You realize that ‘The Real Shaq’ is probably a 5’4 White, 14 year old emo kid who’s getting his jolly’s from the attention, right?” I asked him.
“I don’t know. I think it’s really him”
Today Sean and I were discussing rumored trade situations over IM, and the possibility of Shaq being traded to Cleveland.
“Well, I just got a twitter from The Real Shaq, and he’s at 5 & Diner right now,” Sean informed me.
“Let’s go then” I said, assuming that I’d finally put this “Real Shaq” crap to rest.
Twenty minutes later we were pulling up to the restaurant and looking for the big black truck that he’s rumored to drive around town. “Maybe that’s it” Sean said, pointing at an older, but nice Van and laughing. As we pulled up I saw the Superman symbol on the grill.
Maybe that is it?
We went in, and to my surprise the MDE(Most Dominant Ever) was sitting in the corner booth by himself. We gave the man a nod and “Hey” as we walked to our table and were soon whispering back and forth like 12 year old girls at the 7th grade dance.
Oh, and if you’re incredibly bored and want to read more of the musings of a miserable NYC’er about to re-take the New York Bar Exam on Tuesday, feel free to follow me at @masemase. And wish me luck because lord knows I’ll need it.
