I Texted Mayor Mark About His Health Scare and Here’s How it Went
My text message exchange with Mayor Mark Boughton following his recent health scare pretty much sums up dude relationships in just a few simple words. You see, dudes get uncomfortable when life happens, because we know we MAY have to express concern. We don't like expressions or concern.
I consider Mark a friend. So when I heard that he had a medical issue last week, I got nervous that I was going to have to see how he was doing. After putting it off for a few days, my wife insisted I send a message expressing concern, so I did the best I could. If you left your "readers" at home and cannot see the small text in the photo this is how it went word for word:
Lou - "I hope you are OK. I heard you had a thing. All the best man lemme know if you need anything."
Mark - "Thanks. It was a thing. I'm OK."
That's all dudes AKA walking ding-a-lings are capable of in these situations. I did my best. It is good to hear he is alright, though.
You don't care about any of what I just said though, do you? You just want to know what was said in the redacted portion of our text thread. I would have left it in, but it was the physical location of our secret Illuminati meeting. Can't do it.
