Comeback Challenge 55: The ECP Version (ECP= Extra Comebackulatory Perception)


Many of my blog buddies play Mimi's Dating Comeback challenge as often as they can. I've played quite often and have ended up in the top 3 almost every time. On the last Comeback Challenge, I poked a little fun at Mimi because she forgot to do a snippet for Bachelor #10. Mimi usually has 10 snippets and a tie-breaker. Me, being me decided to play on that fact and in the process coined a few new (non-literary, non-scientific) terms about the missing Bachelor. So, playing further on this, I emailed Mimi with my Comeback lines this Friday evening. Mimi doesn't post the snippets until Saturday, so now I have comeback lines before I have lines to comeback on, otherwise known as Premature Combackulation. The following is the actual email that I sent Mimi without the pictures. I added them for this post because I thought they were funny. They bear no resemblance to actual Bachelors living, or otherwise alone for eternity. No animal was hurt in the making of this post, but I can't guarantee that some Bachelor's egos will not be bruised, when the contest starts. The Bachelor's profile snippets will be added in another post when the challenge actually starts. Email to Mimi follows:


Hi Mimi
I'm just trying to hone my skills a little. I'm testing the waters with Preemptive Rejection aka Premature Comebackulation to develop my ECP. So the following are my comeback lines. For this to work, please do not read until you have your bachelor snippets, otherwise the results may be skewed a little and influence the results. (I'm hoping that at least a couple might be on the mark).

I just had to do this for shits'n'giggles. I guess I must be really going through CT's (Comebackulum Tremens). Ha!

This is going to be even funnier if even one of those manages to match up with the Bachelor's comments!

Thanks for stopping in!
I'm hoping at least a couple will hit the mark.

Thanks! I really had fun doing this one. I needed a diversion from work related sheeeeeiiitt that's been going on lately. Note: these really get easy when you visualize your boss as the Bachelor, but you do have to restrain yourself or BLEEEEP

comment deleted,
thanks, I guess?

Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it. And in Italian that would be Francesco Classico. Hmmmm, I wonder? Vino anyone? With my luck Chianti would sue for trade mark violations.

Thanks on both counts. Hope you're in the challenge this week.
