There are two things y’all need to know about me.
First, I don’t use much bad language. I’ve seen all the meme’s:
But I’m from the school of thought that is more:
(and the “-Me” credited in that quote is not Me, I found that on the internet and couldn’t track it back to the original source! If you said this, let me know!)
And the second thing you need to know about me is:
Yes, I’m that person!
Now that you know these two things… let me tell you how they relate. And if foul language offends you, well, you shouldn’t have clicked on this blog when it is clearly about a day I said a bad word!
The other day I got a text from my buddy, Bert.
So, that happened. My phone betrayed me. It accidentally Face Time’d my Ex.
And I said a really bad word!!
And while I’m saying all the bad words in my head, I am sending my Ex a text and literally it says
“Sorry, I didn’t mean to call you, I was asking Siri to beatbox for me!”
Because that doesn’t sound fake AT ALL!!!
But, he called, and I answered, and I kid you not, told me all about his day – like it hadn’t been years since we had talked! Like it hadn’t been years since we had talked and he had said he was going to call. And never did!
Okay, so this is my Ex from a long time ago, and while we weren’t together long, it was an intense relationship, and while I had the utmost respect for him, he and I both will admit that towards the end, well, we were young, tempers were strong.
For the most part, it’s been fine. We work in the same industry but not in the same State (most of the time) and while we have run into each other at functions, it is rare.
And let me tell you, I swear I could be a secret agent, I am awesome at ducking and eluding capture!!
At least, I am, until my phone decides to betray me!!!!
Back to the story. My phone betrayed me. I talked to my Ex.
For like an hour.
He wants to mend our relationship.
Not get back together, I was able to determine that in that phone call, but just to mend our relationship.
I know that inside my head I was reacting like Dean Winchester – “no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. No, no no. No, no. No”
What came out was “Sure, uh, let me process all this, but I can be open to it”
So that just happened. And so far I’ve been really grown up about it. A few friends that I’ve talked to have commented at how grown up I’ve been and how I’ve been handling it so very well, really mature about the whole thing actually.
I changed the ring tone for my Ex to dogs barking… cause he could still be a dog!
But no one needs to know that!!! 🙂
