Bye Bye Birdie

Not to state the obvious, but today is Sunday. I haven' heard from Ben since Tuesday, despite his promise to call this weekend while he was out of town.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm being too quick to cut men off at the knees. But really, how hard is it to make a quick phone call? Exactly. Talk about not making a girl feel special.

Plus, I didn't miss him one bit (except last night when I got a wee bit tipsy, and even then, it had less to do with him and more to do with the fact that he has a penis). I may as well be dating an anatomically correct mannequin [note to self: check out Ebay for anatomically correct mannequin].

When he emails me tomorrow, I'll semi-politely tell him I'm not seeing him again.

I'd rather read a book.

Well...technically the weekend isn't over yet. He still has a few hours.

Erika said...

True. And technically bats could fly out my arse. Actually, maybe that couldn't happen.

Amy said...

Good thing you have all those books reserved at the library.

dan said...

Well, what if he got into a car accident or somehow otherwise could not call? There are reasons out there. Don't simply jump to conclusions!

Sean said...

seriously? i forget to call all the freaking time. how i ever get a second date ever amazes me.

Erika said...

Amy: Books are very dependable and predicable. Except for those "choose-your-own-adventure" kind.

Dan: Ok, if he was in a car accident or was exposed to a deadly virus and had to be placed in quarantine at the hospital, I'll overlook it.

Sean: But I bet you "up" the charm factor, and finesse your way into a second date. This guy, nadda.

Charlene said...

haha Notice the only comments defending the not calling are from GUYS!

Erika said...

Yeah, I noticed. Must, protect, member, of, the, pack. ;)

If all a guy has to do is have a penis, then I will volunteer that I have a penis...

Erika said...

ST: Well certainly having a penis will get your foot in the door. But it takes a sense of humor and brains to keep you inside.

dan said...

Yeah, well, what are the excuses that women use when they never call the guy back after he called them?

It's a two way street people.

Erika said...

Dan: I'd imagine there are as many excuses as there are men. Personally, I'm a big believer in being honest.
