That is what I was doing this evening, minding my own business, when a call came through my husbands phone.

My hubby likes to look through the ads on Craigslist and he loves to tinker with projects. Today he found a go cart for a descent price, close by, that he was interested in for the girls to play on for awhile. When I got home from the store, he had me look at the ad. I said ok, so he asked me to call the guy, while he went outside to do something. I got his phone and called. No answer, went to voicemail. I left a message. Within 5 minutes he calls back, saying that he had someone on there way to pick it up. I said “oh ok then, thanks for calling me back.” Usually no one calls since I have an out of state phone number. Then he asks, so where is 702 at? I told him Nevada. “But I’m right up the road by such and such. We are just too lazy to change the phone number.” (Now mind you I said “WE“). Then he laughed and I laughed. He was pretty nice. Then he said, if the guy didn’t show, he would call me back. I thanked him and that was pretty much the conversation. Oldest ran out and told daddy that it was probably sold and we went on with our evening.

Later on, around 8 p.m., Oldest and I was watching The Voice, yes we are addicts now, his phone rang. I answered, It was the go cart guy. “Sorry to call so late, hope I didn’t wake you.” He starts out. “The guy came and bought the go cart.” Now I am thinking, why are you calling me 5 hours later, to tell me that it was sold. I kinda figured it was. But I was nice. I said again, “ok, well thanks for calling me back.” Then he said No problem, and he was like tripping over his words. I then said. Good night. He said alright thanks, or something like that and we both ended in bye. Everyone you deal with on Craigslist is weird anyways, so I overlooked this and Oldest asked me what was going on. I told her what he said, and we both figured he was going through his phone calling everyone back.

About 5 minutes went past and I heard my hubby coming in the back door, he was done for the night, when his phone went off again. This time a text. I automatically thought it to be our neighbor, so Oldest got up to check. She looked at it, with a weird expression, then hollered at her dad. I asked her who or what it said and she said she didn’t know. Hubby walked over to the counter, asking who it was. I said it must be a secret because she wouldn’t tell me. Then he read the text and said, “Really Lesa, Really!” “What?” “What did I do?” He then said, “This is for you!” I got up to see what all the hub bub was about. It was a text from the guy with the go cart. He sent a picture of himself, asked if I was single, and wanted to know if I would like to have dinner with him. I immediately broke out into a loud laugh. Hubby didn’t find it so amusing. I did. I thought it was hilarious. That is why the guy called at 8 p.m., that is why he was failing at talking. He was trying to ask me out. Now how can you ask out someone that you spoke to on the phone for no more then a mere 5 minutes?  I guess it was just my southern accent that got him. I kept laughing, hubby kept looking at me. I told him everything I said to the guy. Even my mom came out of her room, because she heard us talking and me laughing so loudly. She thought it was funny, Oldest thought it was funny. Hubby…no, not so funny. I was completely embarrassed too, I could feel my face turning red as I kept telling him it wasn’t anything I did. He was sooooo jealous. Finally the shoe was on the other foot. He loves to make me jealous, didn’t feel so good since the tables were turned.

I usually don’t like to call on whatever he is interested in at the time. Like I said, people are strange, some are nice, some aren’t. I always seem to get the ones that aren’t. So maybe next time he will think twice about asking me to call.
