MEET-UP WITH REALLY OLD ACTIVERAINER

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with people first...then business Ran Right Realty 636943 licensed to thrill

I felt this tap-tap tap- on my shoulder and wondered. It was an affectionate type of tapping, one from someone who might know me, and I was receptive to it. Perhaps it was someone needing help? Now a days, one never knows what to expect & when

THE TAPPER CAME UP BEHIND ME

ABOVE: I was startled but open minded. Even if this was by accident, it had a purpose. 

ABOVE: I tried to just walk away not wanting to make a fuss but it reached out to me wanting a moment of my time. 

ABOVE: He wanted to shake hands and share that he was one of the original developers of ACTIVERAIN and was involved in the brainstorming of the idea. I gently mentioned that a lot has changed since he left high skull, and it tickled his funny bone.

I asked if he still blogged, commented or posted on ACTIVERAIN and he claimed his heart wasn't in it and not to think him a lazy-bones. He did mention he was the first (when this was in development) to hit 14 million points in his prime. A lot of that was from BONE-us points. Today however, nothing gets under his skin, and he also stated he doesn't have the stomach for it?

HOW DID YOU KNOW ME?

Oh, he says, I still log-in and read the Q & A section, features and miscellaneous postings only those that catch my interest. It is there I took a liking to your comments and decided to follow you. I was especially impressed with your old posts home library spanning the years. Reminded me of myself

SMALL TALK

I wished him well and offered to buy him lunch. Thanks, but no. He said he would be eating ribs later on. I asked him: What about a drink?  He said sure, I'll have a beer and a mop. Too messy says I. I asked if he celebrated Halloween and he said he enjoys dressing up as a human. Do you go to dances? He said he had noBODY to go with so no. Why don't you go alone? He said: I don't have the guts!

It’s engaging to have not seen somebody in a while and have all these stories to tell the other person. I recommend it if you have the opportunity

Hi Richie- I am smiling from ear to ear!! What a cute and clever post!!! Do you think this older member might be the previous owner of that annoying little chihuahua that used to pop up when the site was going wonkers???

Sep 20, 2022 06:18 PM

Yes, to that surmise in your commenting Kathy Streib the original "chihuahua" however lives for Halloween while its human counterpart causes mischief here & there.

Richie Alan Naggar - What a fun post! Has it been that long since we celebrated Halloween? Oh my, time sure flies. As I was reading your post, I was vulnerable and believed you did run into a developer from AR who had over 14,000 points but then when I started reading your comments, I have shadows of doubt.

Richie, you are such a creative bainy guy, I suspect this is part of your creative writing and if so, it was BRILLIANT! This thought came to me when I read your comment "he was just an old bag of bones soon to be dust."  Plus the fact he turned down a meal and a drink caused me to believe your imagination got the best of me and all the readers who read your post.

Whether the story was real or FAKE, I loved it! Yes. Keep me in suspense, unless of course you want to share.
