Over the phone. Not verbatim.
"So I changed my status on OKCupid today."
"Yeah? I noticed a few days ago that you changed your Facebook to In A Relationship. And then your MySpace."
"Yeah, well I figured we'd kinda talked about it. And I kinda wanted to wear it around."
"Oh, you are nice and you are nice. But for some reason I kinda came away from that conversation with the impression you thought the whole categorization thing was a little lacking."
"Huh. Nah, not really."
"Well I liked it. That you changed your status. It made me happy."
"I changed my status on Facebook pretty much as soon as I noticed you had. I was waiting to talk to you before changing my Myspace and OKCupid."
"So I guess we're, uh, In A Relationship, hey?"
Silence while we both smile at our headsets.
"Yep, that's what it says on the internet."
