Well, I did it. I met up with that bloke I met online. Everybody warned me not to go. “You get all sorts of people on t’internet these days…”, they said. You do indeed get many people out there pretending to be someone they’re not. Not in this case.
I met up with Ally Simpson and his wife Cherith tonight up at Starbucks in Ballymena.
I can’t remember how we first hooked up online (think it was facebook), but I’ve been reading Supersimbo.com for a while now and bantering with Ally on Twitter. We talked about various things – our backgrounds, why we blog, our current church life and so on.
It was all over too soon. Obviously we could not part without a photo to prove it actually happened.
