Facebook: John Michael has sent you a message

Message #1 12:18 am: “Just so you know, you are the most difficult person to look up on facebook. There are at least a million Allison Johnson’s from Kentucky on there!”

PinkLouLou to herself: “hmmmm…”

Message #2 12:19 am: “I hope you remember me. Otherwise this is going to come across as REALLY creepy.”

LouLou thinks: “OMG…who did I meet…”

So I immediately click on Sir John Michael’s profile, and this jumps out at me.

Networks: Oxford High School.

OMG. Whilst in Oxford Mississippi for my birthday, I met a high school student, and probably tried to make out with him. (I sort of have some history with boys with birthdates of 1991. Yeah, I said it. Remind me to tell you that story later.) anyhoo, further investigation is clearly necessary.

So at dinner last night for Nicole’s birthday, I ask the girls…
“anybody remember me meeting someone in Oxford…maybe a younger sort of person…perhaps by the name of John Michael.”

Courtney says “OMG, YES! You talked to him for about two hours! He found out what your favorite shot was and brought one up to you! That was his entry move, and I think you then fell in love.”
It immediately all starts to come back to me…OH yeah! I DO remember something about this! This is just after we had been called old ladies by the young college girls, so I was so flattered that this guy was buying me a shot! And I thought it was so sweet that he had found out from the bartender what I liked! As you can probably guess, I am pretty sauced at this point. I would guess this took place circa the same time that this picture was taken.

Aaaaaand moving on. Courtney informed me that John Michael and I proceeded to talk for about two hours, posted up on some bar stools. Awesome. Very hazy memory of this. Here are a few things we have since concluded about said encounter:

1. there may have been dancing involved, we are not sure.

2. It is debateable that I likened my new found crush to John Krasinski.

(see my correlation during my boozy delusional fog?)

3. My friends had to pry me away from my young friend to take care of some other birthday business. HA.

4. And it has been determined that there was in fact not, any sort of birthday smooch shared between me and John Michael.

5. John Michael was in fact born in 89, so is therefore only five years my junior.

6. He is currently, class of ’12 at Sewanee, so Cheers. Older than I originally thought, just somehow happened to miss this part when I originally saw him on FB.

7. He is a very nice, sweet sweet guy.

All in all, it was a community effort but we were able to piece the story back together. I just sat there and laughed. What the heck. Only me. I am officially a Cougar.

John Michael, if you are reading, I am SO sorry for being a silly tipsy girl who at first, forgot all about our encounter. I do now in fact remember you, and think you are just a gem for being so nice and for making my birthday so fun! You are absolutely precious and I owe you a shot next time I am in Oxford!

So in conclusion, girls, if you have younger brothers, you might want to keep them away from me. IM KIDDING! 😉

Thought you all might enjoy, Thank goodness it is almost the weekend!
  1. Jamie says:

  4. sugar says:

    LOL….tooo funny. Thanks for sharing. I had a couple of months that I dated MUCH younger guys. I am 41, I dated a 29 yr. old and a 30 yr. old. What was I thinking?! Well, I had looootsa fun anyway. I have now come to my senses, I think…well, almost.

  5. How hilarious are you? My girlfriend has done that before we're like dude you just made yourself a cougar and your only 25.. LOL!

    Love the piecing of the story I've had many of those nights!

  6. Meredith says:

    STOP IT!!! This is too funny, I went to a friends party Friday night and we all got sauced!! All I remember is 2 red bulls and vodka and 1 shot…..but evidently WE HAD A LOT MORE!! Any who, I made a new friend b/c of it… Iended up with her license and car keys, found her, thanks to facebook and went out with her and some friends last night for girls night…. did I mention… I came home with NO SHOES!!! Yeah, Friday must have been a bad party night in Memphis b/c I know a few here that don't remember much either…and one is suppose to meet up with some guy she met and gave her number too and we did a vigorous search at girls night last night for him on facebook in all. lmao

  7. Such a funny story! That's so cute he found you on facebook!

  8. Jessica says:

  10. Mighty Burns says:

    lol I have the odest luck as well on this matter. I think they are older though.. apparently wine does not allow me to judge age well. Just this past weekend I stared talking to a guy friend of my sisters… well her roommates.. anyways then it comes out. 21.. oh in two weeks! lol

  11. AbbyS. says:

    hahahaha!! I am loving this! 🙂
    Great story!

  12. Venassa says:

    Haha the nights you have to piece back together are usually the best. He sounds like a sweetie so at least you have good taste when robbing the cradle.

    That photo of John Krasinski is yummy.

  13. Jill says:

    This story made me laugh my tail off. You're so funny…someone should follow you around for a night to do a video blog. It'd give you lots of material, ha!

  14. Brown Girl says:

  15. Whitney says:

    That's so funny lol!

    Haha…my boyfriend calls me a cougar because I'm almost 3 years older than him.

  16. Oh dear lord this is TOO HILARIOUS! The situations you get into are just unreal!

  17. Stephanie says:

    OMG-SO funny!!! You seriously should consider writing a book with all these redic stories! I hope it's ok with you that I will live my life vicariously through you. 😉 xo

  18. BC says:

  21. Kerr says:

    oh my gosh this is a fantastic story!!! Love it!
    I may or may not have done something similar a few weekends ago but instead of the boy being a youngin he was from madagascar. so random.

  22. Lauren says:

    OMG, I am so behind and trying to catch up, this is the funniest story EVER! Sounds like you had a fab birthday! And now you are a cougar, hilarious!

  23. At the risk of sounding like a total idiot – what is/how do you "link up"? Thank you for answering my new-blogger-I-dont-know-how-to-do-this question. 🙂

    The confessions are my favorite!

  24. Rachel says:

    Okay, so I'm totally being a blog stalker, but I'm at work, bored to death at 3 am…so what else would I do? Read old Pink Lou Lou blog posts! Came across this post…and Oxford is my favorite place in the entire world. Ole Miss alum here! But the main reason I'm commenting is this guy went to my high school and is from my home town! So needless to say, I laughed really hard while reading this. What a small world! You make me laugh…you better be sure to holler at your girl the next time you come to Oxford 🙂
