Of everything I’ve ever written about Drew, the thing he gives me the most shit for is the following statement, from a post I made over a year ago:
“Drew gossips a lot.”
Therefore, I present the following evidence, in the form of an IM chat that occurred just minutes ago. Brief background: Dan (all names changed) is a good friend of mine who has long been on the verge of breaking up with his girlfriend, Sheila, who recently worked on one of Drew’s shows. Denise is a pregnant friend of ours.
Jerry: Did I tell you about Dan & Sheila?
Jerry: Let’s just say Denise’s baby may have a little playmate on the way!!!
Drew: ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?
Drew: I thought you were going to say they broke up!!!!!!!
Jerry: Yeah, I’m kidding.
Jerry: They broke up.
Drew: I was on the phone telling someone the news already!! YOU ASS!!!
Jerry: My god you gossip fast!
Jerry: Who were you telling anyway?
Jerry: Not someone who knows Sheila I hope
Drew: i stopped before i said anything
Jerry: Oh thank god
Jerry: I started to tell you the real gossip, but it didn’t seem hot enough, so I figured I’d spice it up first!
Drew: thank god, it was her boss.
Jerry: can you imagine?!
Jerry: I’m bad, but you’re WORSE!
Drew: i’m bad, but YOU’RE worse — you lied about the gossip!!!
Drew: to a known gossip!
Jerry: Only because I didn’t think you could possibly pass it on in TEN SECONDS!
Drew: you underestimated my powers, youngster.
Jerry: for the last time ever!
