My friend (who shall remain nameless) is a multitasker. We frequently talk while she is on the blue tooth and doing other things...shopping...ordering meals...cleaning out her garage. So I am accustomed to waiting to talk to her until she wraps up other conversations.
She recently lost her blue tooth, and I keep forgetting that she's lost her blue tooth.
Not to mention, she also has a few issues with her cell phone. Quite often I have received accidental-dial calls. And I listen as she is in line at the grocery store, or in a meeting, etc. before I figure out that it was not an intentional call, at which point I hang up and scold her later.
Last night was a first, however. I was calling her, and apparently she accidentally answered. She thought she was turning the phone off, but instead, answered it.
And I should probably mention that she has also recently re-entered the dating world after a loooooooong absence, and so I've been hearing a lot of her funny/horror stories, reading forwarded e-mails, and basically just playing life coach.
So last night I call her, and she answers, and I hear her obviously in a public place talking to someone. Yes, you can see where this is going, huh? Well, I thought she was finishing up a conversation with someone, but not wanting to miss my call, so I waited. And waited. In my defense, I DID try to get her attention by calling her name. But then I realized that she was making getting-to-know-you conversation...'where did you go to school'...'I knew someone who went there' type of things. And then I thought maybe she was wanting me to hear first hand some of what she was dealing with out there. So I waited for awhile before hanging up...maybe a little too long.
NO! I did not hear anything embarrassing. Not that the whole things wasn't a little embarrassing. I called her this morning to 'fess up. She took it well, and we had a few laughs. She actually can't wait to tell another friend (that set her up with this guy) that this happened.
All I can say is if she ends up with this one, I can say I was on their first date with them.
Oh, and this one sounded like a nice guy. :)
