mystery solved: part II

Dear Mernst, I know it’s you.

And really, I should’ve known all along. I do, after all, have excellent stalking skills. Which doesn’t explain why it took until today for me to figure this all out.

Let me start at the beginning.

My roommate, Annie, works at MWW Group and I work at Coyne. Coyne and MWW are apparent ‘rivals’ so some people think its funny that we live together. Apparently, I came up at lunch one day, where Annie mentioned me. Somehow, my business card was brought out and she came home that night to tell me that “everyone in her office wants to prank me.”

From then on, I was on the look out but I never really believed that this group of “strangers” would do anything that good (or anything at all for that matter).

Fast forward to last week, when Annie went into work to tell Studio MWW about how we found this licked cupcake. Cue Mr. Mernst.

Let me explain how I found you. The lovely and talented Melissa Mackey came to my desk today. Since I had told practically my entire office about this mystery, she casually asked if I had ever figured out who it was. I said no and she told me to google “micahwave” so I did. (Why I didn’t think of this before is beyond me). Googling “micahwave” resulted in your twitter page – which had a link to your website – which had a link to your flickr account. After creeping through your pictures, I found a picture of you holding a GIANT check (which Annie had told me about a while back…) which revealed your full name. I then googled your full name, and up popped your facebook account. Since we are clearly not friends, I obviously couldn’t view your profile but I could see 3 friends that we had in common: Frank Filiatrault, Ann Marie Chatenka and the sneaky Mike Petite. That’s when I knew.

What makes this even funnier is that last week I joined Annie, Mike and their friend Adrianna for dinner at the Shannon Rose. Since I was so creeped out by this entire situation, I decided to share it with them. Little did I know, they were holding back laughter because they knew the entire story.

I do owe apologies to my friends that I’ve blamed along the way. To Lila, Crissy, Marissa and most of all Chris – I am sorry for accusing you of licking my cupcake. (However, truth of the matter is that Annie swears she didn’t lick the cupcake, that she just relayed the message to Micah – which means the ACTUAL cupcake licker is still out there OR it was licked while drunk and the licker doesn’t actually remember).

ANYWAY, I tip my hat to you, Micah Ernst for having such gaiety and mernst. And to Annie and Mike for keeping the secret so well. However, I’ll have you know that this is not the end.
