This one is filed in my "oh my god, I can't believe I did that" file.
I sent out a message to about 40 people on Facebook yesterday. Business owners, close friends, family (including Hubby's extended family). It was a plea for a local businessman who has lost his business and his home and is pretty much destitute. He's someone well-known and loved in our community and most people don't know how much he's suffering, so I thought I'd see if I could help a bit.
So far so good, right?
Within moments of sending the message, I received a reply from a friend saying he'd be sending some money to help. He asked for information that I hadn't put in the main message - name, address, etc. And we joked around a bit.
This particular friend is someone I have told you about before - my first online fling. My first phone sex. My first long distance love. I've known him for over 18 years, but we've never met in person, and he's constantly telling me that I owe him a blow job and I vacillate between agreeing that I do and playing hard to get. He definitely wins the award for holding out the longest for a little bit of licking from Kat.
So, as we were "talking" in FB chat, after he told me how much he was going to give to this other friend to help him out, I was so excited I wrote, "I definitely owe you a b-job for this!"
A few seconds later, I realized that he had replied to all in his message to me, which meant that my BJ offer was sent out to my family, Hubby's family, prominent local citizens, my employees - everyone who got the original message.
Oh. My. God.
I tried to delete, but it was too late. I could delete it from my screen and inbox, but not from everyone else's. It was out there and there was no way to take it back. I stared at my screen for awhile. I wondered how long it would take someone to call Hubby about this. I tried to think of a plausible explanation.
So far, two people (one employee and the PTA president from my son's school) have contacted me to let me know that I wasn't having a private conversation like I thought I was. Neither mentioned the BJ comment but I could tell in their tone that's what they were referring to. I'm hoping that most of the others just deleted it.
Now, I wait for fallout.
Oh my god, I can't believe I did that.
