current mood: sheepish
And you can trust me not to think
And not to sleep around
If you don't expect too much from me
You might not be let down
~ “Hey, Jealousy” by Gin Blossoms
Not sure if anyone remembers a few months back when I accidentally texted the wrong number and the wife of the poor guy called me and demanded to know who I was and why I was texting her husband to let him know I arrived back in Nebraska safely. Well, on Easter, I once again texted this person – obviously I hadn’t saved the corrected number for my friend. This time, the guy responded in Spanish. To which I realized it was the wrong number AGAIN, so I did not respond.
This morning, I get a phone call from a PRIVATE NUMBER; quite early actually. I answer, not knowing who it could be. It was a very pissed off Latina women who did not have a good connection, resulting in me not knowing what she was saying. All I could tell is that she was not a happy wifey. After 30 seconds of me asking her to hold on so that I could leave the office. She begins demanding to know who I am. Knowing that the guy’s marriage could be in jeopardy, I did not get evasive or defensive. I told her my name and complete details of the 30 second text exchange on Easter morning. She was looking on the computer; not on her husband’s cell phone so she couldn’t see the actual text messages – just the record of them. She said I want to believe you . . . but this seems suspicious. I asked her if she wanted me to forward her the messages. She did. She gave me her cell phone number and I quickly forwarded all three messages in a manner much faster than I could have typed them myself.
She texted me back this message:
That’s ok thank you for saying the true”
I apologized again. And I corrected the number, once again, in my Contacts. I pray this does not happen again. I don’t know that she will continue to behave somewhat rationally. I use the term ‘rationally’ loosely. This exchange does make me wonder, though, if she is so untrusting, why is she still married to the guy? How does he put up with it? Or, is she rightfully concerned? Has he had affairs before? I am so curious about this unknown Spanish-speaking couple. What is their story?
I am blessed to be in a relationship where neither of us feels the least bit inclined to read each other’s text messages, e-mails, etc. My philosophy is this: “I don’t look for something I don’t want to find.” I think the world would be a much happier place if more people followed the “Willful Blindness” formula.
On a completely unrelated topic, I want to see the 3D version of “Clash of the Titans”. I remember the original movie from when I was a kid. I loved it. Hopefully this one will not disappoint.
Have a nice day.
