This Week’s Shocking Discovery

19 Nov

Apparently, I’m more pathetic than I realized.  Most of you, have said that I should just suck it up and call Mr. Mustang.  Aside from going against everything I believe in and thinking that I’m incapable of dialing out to a boy on my phone, there’s another major problem.  What on God’s green earth would I say??  This is how I imagine the conversation going:

  • Him: Hello? 

  • Me: Um, hi.  It’s Catherinette.

  • Him: Sorry.  Who?

  • Me: Catherinette. 

  • Him: [silence]

  • Me: From the other night. . .?

  • Him: [silence]

  • Me: We made out for 2 hours in the parking lot?
  • Him: Oh, right!  How’s it going?

  • Me: Good.  So, anyways, I saw you called me the other day and was just calling back.

  • Him: I did?  Oh, it must have been my nephew playing with my phone again.

  • Me: [Awkward silence] Oh . . .

I hate being me sometimes.

    I know. It’s painful being me. -CS

    Just call! 🙂

    And say what?? -CS

    Or it could go like, “Hey, I tried calling you on Friday and you weren’t around, then I got arrested for driving a Mustang in a non-1985 zone, so I just got out of the joint. We should do it.”

    Know what’s funny? He was just 3 in 1985. 🙂 -CS

    Oh yeah, and call. Because what’s lamer – calling or sitting around waiting for the call?

    Seriously? You totally know I’m going to say it’s lamer to call. Come on, now! You know me better than that! -CS

    Horse. to. water. 15 comments to the last mail saying to just call him…

    Grow some balls petal and hit those digits, drink a martini or three if you must, but just put us out of our misery, were are all hanging out here with antici…….

    …pation for the outcome.

    Have you noticed that I’m just the teeniest tiniest bit stubborn? Just a little bit? It’s an excellent combination with the whole pathetic side of me. -CS

    Call, call, call. He’s probably worried that you were ignoring his phone call. Call, call, call.

    I’m getting the feeling that you think I should call him. -CS

  7. Andrew November 19, 2007 at 10:30 pm #

    Stubborn as a mule, which is bred from a male donkey and a female horse. Now what’s another name for a donkey ?

    You are one if you don’t call.

    Yes, I’m an ass. In fact, I put the ass in klassy. -CS

    oops, did I say that outloud? : )

    Yes, yes I totally am and yes you totally did. – CS

    Call him! Or text him… that’s the new-fangled technology’s wussy way out. You could be coy about calling now and say something like, “Well I waited four days to call you…”

    I’d text. But my track record isn’t so hot.

    His phone is all jacked up so he can’t recieve text messages. I’ve seen it and I know it to be true. Still, I could totally send one just to make him crazy-assuming that he’d care. -CS

    I’ll say this…I understand your apprehension…however, unless you have visions of building a happy home with 2.5 kids and Aluminum siding, don’t worry about it. Just say “Hey, what’s up…did you call me the other day?” If he says something lame…just say, “Damn, I didn’t know you had assaphobia”…then hang up and feel superior.

    Hell no I’m not having kids with this guy!! He’s way too young for that kind of nonsense. -CS

  11. Rambler November 20, 2007 at 1:19 am #

    I am sure he would be thinking the same too…
    If he calls you and what if you say mustang who… probably it was not me..

    That’s Mr. Mustang. I don’t know him well enought to just call him Mustang. -CS

    DORK :):)

    I can’t help myself. -CS

  13. Mike November 20, 2007 at 2:28 am #

    Calling this moron? What the hell for? Importance means phone calls. Just like your brick snipet. Move on in life and just remember the fun in the mustang.

    It was a good time, and it does make for a good story. -CS

  14. Charissa November 20, 2007 at 2:55 am #

    Okay – you don’t know me very well at all, but I agree with Mike. Too many times I’ve done this same thing, only to get worked up and excited about something that NEVER would have happened had I not been drinking, sane, thinking, etc. And then it is always, always a let down because my level of excitement is disproportional to the actual opportunity for any relationship.

    You know what I did? I gave up dating until 2008. Sounds stupid, but I actually stopped looking, stopped putting my name in front of every guy’s last name, stopped looking at cute guys and wondering “what if.” Some may view it as pathetic, but it was needed. I was letting my hopelessness get out of hand – had to reel that girl back in.

    Just a thought… because 25 year olds are just not worth this level of energy. 🙂

    I sound like a mom. Or a sister… so sorry. I’m done.

    Charissa, that’s not a bad idea. I was just thinking about doing the same thing, only it would be until 2009. Really, what’s the point. It’s not like I’m tripping over boys who are dying to come home with me. Maybe I need to just take some time off and “regroup”. Just maybe. -CS

    Here’s how I would handle this conversation:
    1. Have a drink. Maybe two.
    2. Dial his number
    3. He answers…
    MM: (checks caller id) hello Catherinette.
    CS: Hi Mr. Mustang, I was just thinking about our make-out session the other night and I’d like a repeat.
    MM: uhhh wow. yeah. I’m definitely into that
    CS: You free this week?
    MM: (stuttering…) I’m yeah I can – yeah. What night
    CS: (I am the master of the universe!!!) How about tomorrow, my place? I’ll cook dinner. You bring the wine.

    How about if I give you his phone number and you call him for me? -CS

  16. carrie m November 20, 2007 at 3:54 pm #

    call him. if that conversation did actually happen, then at least you could feel virtuous in 1, getting out of your comfort zone, 2, telling us lot that you told us so, and 3, wallowing.

    i am not condoning 2 and 3, b/c if that very unlikely scenario were to occur, you should be pissed and be glad that now you know better and get thee onto greener pastures.

    When you put it that way. . .I’m sure I could do it for you guys. -CS

  17. The Diva's Thoughts November 20, 2007 at 4:03 pm #

    Girl the conversation will go much better then you think it will…..CALL HIM.

    Maybe I will. But now so much time has passed! -CS

  18. Step Right Up November 20, 2007 at 4:10 pm #

    Have you ever thought that he’s the one that’s scared to call? And that’s the reason he didn’t leave a message? Maybe when you didn’t pick up, he thought ‘she doesn’t want to talk to me’. I’m guessing he’s a bit intimidated because you’re the older woman. He’s probably thinking, “What does she see in me? I’m only 25.” If you call him, you’ll make his day. Do It!

    I’m too busy being self centered to think about what he might be thinking. -CS

    CALL HIM!!!

    CALL HIM!!

  21. abroad November 20, 2007 at 6:35 pm #

    This person has many strikes against him as mentioned by Pistols, who should be taken seriously on matters of toxic men. Too young, yellow car. Done and done. He was a boy toy you had some fun.

    Toxic? That bad?? -CS

  22. Princess Extraoridinaire November 20, 2007 at 10:01 pm #

    Call him woman!

    NO! It’s too late. There will be no calling anyone. -CS

  23. Andrew November 20, 2007 at 10:13 pm #

    Step right up might have a point, lets face it, if you owned a yellow car, a Mustang even, wouldn’t you be embarrassed to call when you think the woman is sober ???

    You do realise you are letting us all down by not calling, our lives are just a barren wasteland without knowing…

    I’m a huge disappointment to everyone, I know this. I actually considered calling him last night and then thought of a few things:

    1) he’s way too young to date
    2) he owns a Mustang
    3) which is yellow
    4) we have nothing to talk about

    Instead, I flipped through a copy of Real Simple magazine. -CS

  24. Jen November 21, 2007 at 3:46 pm #

    I wouldn’t call. If he’s interested enough, he’ll call you.

    I’m with you, Jen. I’m not wasting my endless minutes on him. -CS

  25. Andrew November 21, 2007 at 3:54 pm #

    It sounds as though Autotrader might have been a better read, you could step up to someone driving a Fiero…

    How about a Trans Am? A purple one? -CS

  26. Andrew November 21, 2007 at 9:19 pm #

    Only if it comes with its own mullet.

    That would be so hot! I’d immediately climb into the backseat for that. -CS

  27. Andrew November 21, 2007 at 10:04 pm #

    You Americans have it so easy, all those cavernous back seats.

    Now when I were a wee nipper my first car was a Fiat 126, stop snickering Guv’nor ! It was called Brian (snail on Magic Roundabout) or the Superfart (self explanatory).

    Now go google one of them.

    OK, got it ?

    Sex in the backseat is possible, it helps if at least one of the parties is double jointed and the other is an East German gymnast, but its possible.

    Back seats? Who said anything about back seats? We made out in the front seat, and let me tell you, the center console in a Toyota Corolla is far better suited to a front seat make out session than the one in a Mustang. Christ, the one in the Mustang was uncomfortable, I’m surprised my sides didn’t bruise.

    I refuse to do it in a car. It’s not going to happen, so I would be delighted to drive around in a Fiat 126, a Mini, or a Space Car. I’m just not a back seat kind of girl. -CS
