To the idiot that decided to call me in the wee hours of the morning, I hope you die a thousand times in misery. So last night I went to bed extremely tired. I was so sleepy by 9:30 p.m. that I couldn't even keep my eyes open. (I know, I can't believe it either.) So I went to bed. Fell fast asleep and was having this incredible dream when the incessant ringing of my cell phone woke me. Immediately, my heart started pounding as I reached for the phone. It startled me. No one calls me this late anymore. For a split second I let myself believe or hope that it was HIM. I had to blink a few times to focus but when I did, sadly, I noticed that not only did I not recognize the number, but the area code was not one from Texas. WTF? So, I placed the phone back on the nightstand and tried to go back to sleep. A few minutes later, the phone rings again, same number. I still don't answer and try to go back to sleep. When it rang a third time, I answered it. Only to be hung up on. Arrrrgh! I was pissed! I lay back down but I couldn't fall asleep. By this time, my anger turned to melancholy. You see, secretly, deep, deep in my heart of hearts, I wanted it to be someone else. There is only one person that is privy to me that late (or early -all in how you look at it) at night. And since "HIM", even the guys that I have dated, don't call me past 10 or 11 at night. Sigh, so I let myself think about "HIM". My mind traveled to the "forbidden zone" and I closed my eyes, with pictures of him on my mind. And I lulled myself to sleep. Great way to doze off, don't you think?
Funny, I had not thought about him in a while, and today, I couldn't get him out of my mind. I wondered how he was doing. If he was happy. I hope he is! No matter how the story went, he made me happy, even if it was just a fleeting moment. Wistful thoughts, and a huge grin on my face. That was me today.
Sometimes wrong numbers aren't such a bad thing after all. Ok "wrong number person", I guess you can live and don't have to die a thousand times in misery after all. I take it back.
