Thursday, April 3, 2014
·       Apr 03 10:45 PM Kris: Hi
·       Apr 03 10:46 PM Sassy: Hiya!
·       Apr 03 10:46 PM Sassy: I can’t stay up too late… I have a meet tomorrow.  : ) 
·       Apr 03 10:46 PM Kris: ok…how long….let’s set an end time…
·       Apr 03 10:47 PM Sassy: You excited? Nervous?
·       Apr 03 10:48 PM Kris: mostly excited….a little nervous but not too much….you’re very easy to talk to….so i expect it will be the same when we meet….except maybe a little nervous about “then what”?
·       Apr 03 10:48 PM Sassy: Midnight?
·       Apr 03 10:48 PM Kris: isn’t midnight too late for you?
·       Apr 03 10:49 PM Sassy: Is it okay if I hug you right off? Like meeting an old friend?
·       Apr 03 10:50 PM Kris: absolutely…and a light kiss on the cheek wouldn’t hurt either. : )
·       Apr 03 10:51 PM Sassy: Ok. I try to be very circumspect in public.
·       Apr 03 10:51 PM Sassy: If we see anyone I know, I am talking to you about donating to my projects.  : )
·       Apr 03 10:52 PM Sassy: Not very likely but good to have a story ready!
·       Apr 03 10:52 PM Kris: ok…..with the arrangement you have with your husband I kind of forgot you still have to be discreet…..and being in your “own backyard”…..is it generally safe and ok?
·       Apr 03 10:52 PM Sassy: Yes
·       Apr 03 10:53 PM Kris: ok…I’m a prospective donor
·       Apr 03 10:54 PM Kris: how do you want to dress….did you read my email?
·       Apr 03 10:54 PM Sassy: I will have on my typical work outfit which also works for me to dash to the project meeting afterwards
·       Apr 03 10:55 PM Sassy: But be comfortable
·       Apr 03 10:55 PM Sassy: Doesn’t matter
·       Apr 03 10:55 PM Kris: ok
·       Apr 03 10:55 PM Sassy: My top buttons down the front
·       Apr 03 10:56 PM Sassy: or unbuttons, as the case may be
·       Apr 03 10:56 PM Kris: lol
·       Apr 03 10:56 PM Sassy: blue silk scarf
·       Apr 03 10:57 PM Sassy: Are you going to run into you know?
·       Apr 03 10:58 PM Kris: what do you mean?
·       Apr 03 10:58 PM Sassy: Would anyone you know show up at that place?
·       Apr 03 10:59 PM Kris: no…extremely unlikely…i don’t really know anyone there…except my first wife’s mother owns a condominium there…but the chances of running into her are highly unlikely. and any lie i make up on the spot would be fine in the rare event that might happen.
·       Apr 03 10:59 PM Kris: i won’t have anything to worry about that way
·       Apr 03 11:00 PM Sassy: Okay.
·       Apr 03 11:00 PM Kris: have u ever been with someone and run into someone u knew?
·       Apr 03 11:01 PM Sassy: No
·       Apr 03 11:02 PM Kris: i would think that would be a “tense moment” if it ever happened. hope it never does.
·       Apr 03 11:03 PM Kris: tell me how you got involved in the projects…and what it is you do exactly
·       Apr 03 11:04 PM Sassy: I will. Maybe tomorrow. Or the second time.
·       Apr 03 11:05 PM Sassy: Sorry to be cagey
·       Apr 03 11:05 PM Sassy: Just pretty easy to ID me from that and I like to stay anonymous awhile longer.
·       Apr 03 11:06 PM Kris: ok…no problem
·       Apr 03 11:06 PM Sassy: But thank you for asking!
·       Apr 03 11:07 PM Sassy: It’s tough because I’m used to blabbing about it to everyone all the time
·       Apr 03 11:07 PM Kris: it’s good that you have something that’s fun that your passionate about (besides sex—lol)
·       Apr 03 11:17 PM Kris: sounds like fun…do you have close friends as a result?
·       Apr 03 11:17 PM Sassy: Wouldn’t say that… but I do get to meet a lot of people
·       Apr 03 11:18 PM Sassy: And when I was sick they were incredible
·       Apr 03 11:18 PM Kris: that’s great….that they supported you…..how long were you sick for?
·       Apr 03 11:18 PM Sassy: About 9 months
·       Apr 03 11:19 PM Kris: you had chemo that whole time?
·       Apr 03 11:19 PM
Sassy: No. I had surgery, recovered for a month, then 14 weeks of chemo, then a month to recover, then radiation every damn weekday for 2.5 months. 
·       Apr 03 11:20 PM Sassy: Have you heard of an Advent calendar?
·       Apr 03 11:20 PM Kris: yes…i was raised catholic and my mother had one every year when i was a kid growing up
·       Apr 03 11:20 PM Sassy: My project peeps made me a “chemo calendar”
·       Apr 03 11:21 PM Sassy: So every week, I had a present to open
·       Apr 03 11:21 PM Sassy: and a different person to talk with
·       Apr 03 11:21 PM Sassy: And people had a little something tangible they could do for me
·       Apr 03 11:21 PM Kris: that’s so cool
·       Apr 03 11:21 PM Sassy: I never heard of it before
·       Apr 03 11:22 PM Sassy: They handed this huge box full of envelopes and said, “when you’ve opened these, you’ll be done”
·       Apr 03 11:22 PM Sassy: There were 38 envelopes there
·       Apr 03 11:22 PM Kris: wow!
·       Apr 03 11:23 PM Sassy: Poems, knitted hats, lotions, teas, books, restaurant gift cards
·       Apr 03 11:23 PM Kris: did u open them on the same day each week?
·       Apr 03 11:23 PM Sassy: Yes. the night before surgery, then every week before chemo, then every Wednesday night during radiation
·       Apr 03 11:24 PM Kris: what was your usual reaction…when you opened them
·       Apr 03 11:24 PM Sassy: It depended
·       Apr 03 11:24 PM Sassy: It was mostly bowled over…
·       Apr 03 11:25 PM Sassy: especially the hand-knitted cap the night before they shaved my head
·       Apr 03 11:25 PM Kris: what was special about that?
·       Apr 03 11:26 PM Sassy: It was the perfect thing I needed, hand made, beautiful and from someone I didn’t know very well
·       Apr 03 11:27 PM Kris: did having your head shaved make you feel sad, scared, depressed….how did you feel?
·       Apr 03 11:28 PM Sassy: It was AWFUL
·       Apr 03 11:28 PM Sassy: my hair was my mojo
·       Apr 03 11:28 PM Sassy: I had waist length dark hair
·       Apr 03 11:28 PM Kris: wow!
·       Apr 03 11:29 PM Sassy: I took to friends to MGH
·       Apr 03 11:29 PM Sassy: They made it as easy as possible
·       Apr 03 11:29 PM Sassy: and the woman cut it in stages, to show me options I could do as it grew
·       Apr 03 11:29 PM Sassy: Even a mohawk!
·       Apr 03 11:30 PM Sassy: I had a wonderful long wig. That helped a lot
·       Apr 03 11:30 PM Sassy: I thought it would just cover my head but it actually managed to fool most people
·       Apr 03 11:30 PM Kris: how does a wig like that stay on?
·       Apr 03 11:31 PM Sassy: It’s made of lace and elastic, then you can tape the back and front edges
·       Apr 03 11:31 PM Sassy: They fit it to your head
·       Apr 03 11:32 PM Kris: so the elastic kind of holds it in place…and the tape secures it more…
·       Apr 03 11:32 PM Sassy: Once you have any hair at all, it will stay without the tape
·       Apr 03 11:32 PM Sassy: only when you are completely skin that I needed tape
·       Apr 03 11:35 PM Sassy: I had not realized you lose all your hair. Everywhere.  Nose, face, arms, and “down there.” 
·       Apr 03 11:35 PM Kris: wow!  well not to make light of your very serious battle with cancer…but I can relate to not having hair (at least on top)…just means lots of women “rule me out”…oh well.
·       Apr 03 11:36 PM Kris: speaking of “hair”…can i ask you a personal question (i bet you can guess)….
·       Apr 03 11:36 PM Sassy: Sure
·       Apr 03 11:36 PM Kris: what do u think i’m going to ask?
·       Apr 03 11:36 PM Sassy: Do I have hair down there
·       Apr 03 11:37 PM Kris: yup
·       Apr 03 11:37 PM Kris: well?
·       Apr 03 11:38 PM Sassy: Yes. It’s natural. It came back in rather sparse and soft
·       Apr 03 11:38 PM Sassy: You?
·       Apr 03 11:38 PM Kris: yes
·       Apr 03 11:38 PM Kris: i like natural
·       Apr 03 11:38 PM Kris: i didn’t realize until just recently that more people like clean shaved then natural these days
·       Apr 03 11:39 PM Kris: guess i’m just “old school”
·       Apr 03 11:39 PM Sassy: It’s all you see in p0rn
·       Apr 03 11:39 PM Sassy: that or “landing strips”
·       Apr 03 11:39 PM Sassy: I think it makes men look prepubescent
·       Apr 03 11:40 PM Sassy: I want hair I can play with it!
·       Apr 03 11:40 PM Kris: ok…well if you decide to play with me…you’ll have some….
·       Apr 03 11:40 PM Sassy:  : )
·       Apr 03 11:41 PM Sassy: I enjoyed getting to know what bare feels like… very sensitive
·       Apr 03 11:41 PM Sassy: But not going to do it myself
·       Apr 03 11:42 PM Kris: interesting that you hair grew back different…was that everywhere…on your head too that it was different after?
·       Apr 03 11:42 PM Sassy: Yes
·       Apr 03 11:42 PM Sassy: The chemo hair was all swirly curly
·       Apr 03 11:42 PM Sassy: and very soft
·       Apr 03 11:43 PM Sassy: I had been dying my hair for about 30 years…
·       Apr 03 11:43 PM Sassy: had no idea what it would look like
·       Apr 03 11:43 PM Kris: what’s your natural color?
·       Apr 03 11:43 PM Sassy: chestnut brown
·       Apr 03 11:43 PM Sassy: what was yours?
·       Apr 03 11:44 PM
Kris: “was”? LOL really hard!!!!!!!!!!!!
·       Apr 03 11:44 PM Kris: dark brown
·       Apr 03 11:44 PM Sassy: Mine came in silver.
·       Apr 03 11:45 PM Sassy: Quite a shock all at once
·       Apr 03 11:45 PM Kris: so you aged 20 years overnight?
·       Apr 03 11:45 PM Sassy: Hubby said the wig made me look 10 years younger
·       Apr 03 11:45 PM Sassy: then the new hair made me look 10 years older
·       Apr 03 11:46 PM Kris: so do you dye it now?
·       Apr 03 11:46 PM Sassy: no
·       Apr 03 11:46 PM Sassy: I had not been to a salon in 3.5 yrs when I went today
·       Apr 03 11:46 PM Sassy: I couldn’t dye it until the chemo hair grew out (it dyes green)
·       Apr 03 11:46 PM Sassy: and then I sort of forgot about it
·       Apr 03 11:47 PM Sassy: Can you grab a fistful of silver hair?
·       Apr 03 11:47 PM Kris: Sure! reminds me of a crude bumper sticker i saw a couple of times on some women’s cars….it said….
·       Apr 03 11:48 PM Kris: “If you’re going to ride my ass…at least you could pull my hair!” LOL
·       Apr 03 11:48 PM Sassy: Whoa!
·       Apr 03 11:48 PM Sassy: That’s Sassy!
·       Apr 03 11:49 PM
Kris: Speaking of which…how did you get your nickname (or did you already tell me?)
·       Apr 03 11:51 PM Sassy: My old flame wanted to know if I was the Same Sassy Girl he knew in high school?
·       Apr 03 11:51 PM Sassy: He started calling me Sassy or Sass…
·       Apr 03 11:52 PM Sassy: I needed a… sexy side
·       Apr 03 11:52 PM Sassy: a name for the devil on my left shoulder
·       Apr 03 11:52 PM Sassy: to argue with the angel on my shoulder
·       Apr 03 11:52 PM Sassy: Let me be sexy, sassy, shameless
·       Apr 03 11:53 PM
Kris: i get it…makes sense. so who calls you that now?
·       Apr 03 11:53 PM Sassy: Everyone online

·       Apr 03 11:54 PM Sassy: Do you have Good side and Bad side?
·       Apr 03 11:56 PM Kris: sort of…i think everyone does…i know what you mean when it comes to sex…but i didn’t have to wait so long as you to figure out how pleasurable it was. i started at 13
·       Apr 03 11:57 PM Sassy: I’m trying to unify them more
·       Apr 03 11:57 PM Sassy: I can’t believe what a doofus I was
·       Apr 04 12:00 AM Kris: sorry for the delay…keyboard on laptop doesn’t work right sometimes……i have something to say about your last statement….but it can wait…because in one minute we’re going to turn into pumpkins…
