“Bumps In The Road” (BITR) was supposed to call me yesterday afternoon to set up a definite time for us to get together last night. He’d been busy job searching, and networking, that he wasn’t sure when he’d be finished.. so he was to call.
Around 3pm, I received an email from him stating that due to a phone accident he’d lost my number, and could I call him to give it to him. At this point, it just blended in in a long line of excuses of the last few days, but I figured what the hell.
I called. He didn’t answer. I left voicemail. I also replied to the email with my number. He’d have to try pretty hard to lose it this time.
He didn’t call. I double checked online, and sure enough he’d logged in at 6pm, but alas a phone was too heavy and he must have lost all his fingers in a freak accident so he couldn’t type. Poor guy.
So I settled down at home, cooked dinner, and put in a DVD. As I sat down to eat, I noticed a good male friend of mine was logged online, and decided to cheer him up by calling. He’d been having a bad mood week, and I figured if nothing else we could commiserate together.
As I was hanging up with him, I remembered that I was supposed to call this man from an online dating site, OkCupid, to chat and possibly set up a date. What better way to move on than to schedule a date?
We chatted for a couple hours, laughed, and planned our meeting. I honestly have to admit that I’m looking forward to it. He swears he doesn’t bury people in his back yard, pile them in his closets, or store them in his basement, and I guess I’ll have to trust him.
As soon as we’d hung up, my best bud (male) IM’d me wanting to know all about BITR, and what I possibly did to scare him off. We came to the conclusion that BITR was a whiney little prick and not worth my time. 🙂 He also insisted that I was much more fun now that I’m single. I think its just because he likes the stories of the idiots that I’ve been meeting. My married stories were not nearly as interesting I’m sure.
As I hung up with Buddy, an ex turned good friend (and possibly pimp) messaged me. As we caught up on the news of today, he began to tell me about his friend who he’s been trying to set me up with. I have no idea why as we don’t live anywhere near each other, but alas he went on. Supposedly his friend is porno-star endowed. I’m not sure if that is supposed to turn me on or scare me.
All in all, I’d say this is how to spend a night. Throwing out the trash, and spending quality time with those that really do care about you.
