An Unexpected Call

January 24, 2011 at 1:23 am 21 comments

I came home dog-tired this evening. I was lying in bed half-asleep and resting when I got this call.

Ring! Ring!

Caller: How’s Mickey?
Me: I’m sorry, wrong number. there’s nobody here with that name.
Caller: No, silly, I mean, your one-eyed monster.
Me: I’m not allowed to talk to strangers.
Caller: I’m Marie. Happy now?.
Me: Oh!
Caller: Is it big?
Me: Depends on who you ask.
Caller: I want you take off your shorts.
Me:I don’t believe this. why should I even consider that?
Caller: Because I said so.
Me:This is crazy, now what?
Caller: I want you to play with it.
Me: Hey, wait a minute… ________, is that you?
Caller: Yes

She giggled and hung up.

What was she thinking? She just pulled an old junior high prank on me.

Right at that moment, I was sure she gonna get it tomorrow.

With the heater on, the room was sweltering hot. I stood up and went for a cold shower.

        πŸ˜† i dont see it that way..its funny, yeah. depressingly funny and that is as if im laughing at myself, too ‘coz im in the philippines.

        i appreciate everything you write, really. maybe im just fed up since ive been breathing politics for three years. so id rather be passive.

        do i make sense?
