I feel like i have spent my entire weekend on the big dipper. Believe me, the misinterpretation would have been a lot more pleasurable...things got a little topsy turvy to say the least...
Friday saw TGN and I coming to the somewhat satisfying decision to meet up when I was in town for a meeting next week. Being someone who prides themselves in being relatively direct and to the point, i decided to take the bull by the short and curlies (horns were so last year) and ask TGN why, inspite of all his flirtations, he had not asked to meet up next week when he knew i would be in town for business. He said he was hoping I would ask him...Pathetic or sweet? Hmm. But - Hurrah, I had myself a date!
On Saturday however, amidst more chattering, he managed to drop in the fact that he was meeting up with the girl he was seeing (who he apparently finished with LAST Saturday) as she wanted to "talk things through"...you gotta be kidding me...I decided to pull the plug on things and said we should NOT be speaking and certainly not be meeting up. He reluctantly agreed and apologised for messing me around...bless...then he ended up NOT meeting up with her...We decided not meeting up would be silly as I was in town...And so we were back on...we both agreed that if there was that much interest we should just stop beating round the bush (its tough, but im going to let that one go) and meet up...So, back on again...What happened to trying to simplify things?!
Meanwhile, in real life, out with some friends, i got a message from The Child; "cum to mine". Yes, yes he did actually write that. Aaand that'd be a no then. (I believe my actual reply included the phrase "No way".) Unperturbed, he called THREE TIMES, yes three, and said "he needed me". I didnt even dare ask him to clarify the context to that. I declined and went back into the bar, where I ran into Lex. Its a small world, wherever you are, and we run into eachother on a regular basis. My friends knew his, and we all ended up finishing the night together. I later noticed him talking to a blond i wasnt familiar with, and didnt give her any thought until it turned out that he was going back to hers...ahhh thats nice. So, i spent Saturday night helping my ex do a stride of pride (the natural prelude to the walk of shame). I wonder, given the nature of this beast that the "Stride of Pride" might be entirely nullified in this instance and we might be dealing directly with that rare and painful, Double Walk of Shame?! Allowing for bias aside, she was HORRENDOUS. So, we all walked home together, right to my door. She had bleached hair extensions, a leopard print skirt and a trowel full of foundation on. The words "you can do so much better" sprung to mind...perhaps not my place.
I was determined that Sunday should be a little less high-drama, and went out of town to the country for the day. Who should i bump into, but EU's brother. Who did I spend most of the day thinking about!? EU. Arghhh. Desperate for some distraction i kept checking my phone for some lighthearted relief from TGN...did my phone flash even once?! Nope...desperate for some distraction, i finally contacted him around 8...his reply didnt even merit a further reply from mine...
I give in, nothing in Man World makes sense...Men are truely from Mars and We are definitely from Venus. So, I ask you, how do the two communicate?! Lex goes off with a WAG. He is good looking, cute, funny, GREAT, just not for me. He could have his pick of ladies - why then choose the tramp!? TGN: MAKE YOUR MIND UP, its not hard! And now that you have what you want, dont bugger off and play the mute card! Argh playing right into everything that made me hold off for so long. And Child: Learn to spell. Or at least dont use text abbreviations so that the ensuing message then reads like a porn memo.
I give in!!
Think i have finally lost all,
