On Phone Calls and Excuses

Filed under: dating

As the title of the post suggests, tonight my ear was glued to the phone for hours. In some cases making excuses, in others, apologizing for them.

The Podiatrist (aka the groom from the wedding at which I met Crazy Wedding Boy) called early on in the evening to inform me that CWB would most likely never be calling me again. In an attempt to save me from the barrage of texts, messages, and missed calls, he did what any good friend would do: he lied. He kindly called CWB, explained that I had gotten back together with an ex-boyfriend, and asked that he bow out gracefully. In the end, neither one of us wanted to lie to the kid, but it was getting out of control. The Podiatrist and his wife The Lawyer, love him dearly, but from the stories I’ve heard, the way he acted with me are the least of his concerns and it sounds like an intervention is imminent.

The other major phone call involved The Twin (though we may need to give him a new name soon … don’t think he’s a big fan of the moniker). It was probably one of the best conversations we’ve had since I’ve known him, which again goes back to how dysfunctional our communication was while we were dating. I’ll say this, while it wasn’t exactly the healthiest relationship I was ever in, it was by FAR the healthiest break up.

So keeping on theme with excuses, who wants to throw a few out there for why the Sox can’t seem to get their shit together? Anyone? Anyone?

There are no excuses to bring Seanez into a bases-loaded tie game. Call me crazy, but I’d rather see Juice Guy take the kid deep for the slam than see Rudy nibble and nibble and miss to walk in the winner. Terrible stuff, really annoying.

Ps. Since I enjoy reading your blog, I’ve put up a link to it from mine. Hope ya don’t mind…

Glad to hear CWB is gone. Hopefully that’s something that won’t be repeated.

The Sox don’t have their shit messed up. They are a game and a half out of first, in the toughest division in baseball, with a patchwork rotation and a bullpen that’s a work in progress. Why is everyone suddenly in panic mode because we’ve lost 2 games to the Yankees? Have you taken a look at the schedule on this road trip? It’s horrendous and we just took 2 of 3 from the hottest team in the AL. Again, why does everyone think we’re in crisis mode?

They’re not doing as well as they should because they don’t have… an Oozinator!

Dude, what is up with CWB? I read today in the paper that even the NSA says that he calls you too much.

Be careful, though. I once tried the “have my friend say that I’m back together with an ex” thing but she kept calling anyway. Sometimes I wish there was a services where you hire someone to deliver the message “Piss off!” You know, like, instead of flowers. A break-up delivery.

Come to think of it, that ain’t a bad idea.

For a sitcom. Hahahahah

Hey glad to hear its all good with CWB and you and the “Twin” are talking. Any chance is twin jason collins from the nets. That is his nickname because he has a twin brother that plays for the jazz. Probably not but what the hell. As for the sox, its a long season if you are still down in September then it might be time to trade shilling and his bloody sock for Dave Winfield and a bunch of Seagulls.

Matty: Thanks for the link, glad you’re enjoying the site!

Esther: Yeah I’ve learned a lot of lessons in the last month or so, and not making out with crazy cousins at weddings is definitely one of them 🙂

Sheep Shagger: I’m not in panic mode, per se, just frustrated at the state we’re in right now.

Mikey: Sometimes I feel like my life IS a sitcom, so that idea may just work for me. Oh and now I totally want one of those guns.

Ari: If The Twin was an NBA player, I doubt I would have been able to keep my mouth shut about it. Nice try though.
