Joe: PsssssstA few minutes pass, and no response. That's not very Melissa-like at all. So I thought I'd ask the obvious question:
Melissa: That is nice to know
Joe: Thought you'd appreciate the tip.
Joe: ...You have no idea who this is do youThat's funny. She apparently didn't put me in her phone. So what the hell, why not play a little game of 20 questions!
Melissa: Nope, m or f?
Joe: MOkay, now she's just messing with me.
Melissa: What state?
Joe: Well That'd just give it away. But which one, where I am now, or where I live?
Melissa: Where U Live

Joe: Uhhhhh no. 17 questions left
Melissa: Greg Allman?
Joe: HOW'D YOU GUESSWow. Is she serious? How could she not figure me out by now?
Melissa: I was sensing Allman bros thru the whole conversation
