No, not really, just wanted to see if you were paying attention. I just got home from a much needed and very extended vacation in my ‘happy place’. Did that sound dirty? It wasn’t. Although I wish it would have been. Alas, no bike riding options. Not that I even remember how to ride a bike, but I digress.
As today is my 1st official ‘reality’ day of 2017 back home (boo) it has been a fun filled day of doing laundry, going through a stack of mail that was the height of a small child and yes, fielding text messages from nothings gone by.
I texted with Repo Man a bit while I was away. And by a bit, I mean for about an hour, once. I also heard from presumed married guy before I left with an uber convincing ‘I’m going to visit my sister, so won’t be in touch, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year’. Now, unless his sister lives in Antarctica, that shouldn’t prevent him from being in touch. Being with his wife and kids and texting from his
online volp internet number to look like a cel number from his laptop would however.
As I was driving home I got a text from PMG (get it? presumed married guy) wishing me a happy new year and saying he hopes he gets to meet me in a couple of weeks. I think not.
Tonight I also got a text from Repo Man just checking in and wanting to know how I am. As I last proclaimed that it didn’t bother me that I was ‘Plan B’ as I want to be his last date, not his 1st, I have had a change of heart. I don’t want to be anyone’s Plan B! I debated whether or not to respond at all and then being the strong and independent woman of 2017 and knowing full well that I shouldn’t be texting with someone who is dating someone else, I responded. What? You couldn’t possibly be surprised by that.
As I did wait 2 hours to respond, he was just walking into a meeting (no, not AA … I don’t think). He sent a reply of ‘I have a lot of exciting news to share with you, so we’ll need to catch up soon; maybe by phone?’. Uhm, nice teaser text. What? He’s engaged? He’s in love? He’s moving far, far away? He’s decided he likes men? He’s moving in with Plan A? He’s dumped Plan A and has decided, sight unseen, that I’m the gal for him? He stubbed his toe? He got a nose ring? Yeah, guessing none of the above. Guess I’ll have to wait for that ever elusive phone call …….as will
the 2 of you.
