I decide to bug him. It was the usual story, me saying something that was attention grabbing, and he reacting to it with sincerity, followed up by my usual statement “I was kidding”.
Yesterday was different. I think he was more tired than usual, or his work-out at the gym was more exhausting than usual, we kept missing each other’s calls one too many a time for him to figure out whether I was joking or being serious, or I was simply being more annoying than usual.
To top it all, I had fallen asleep from exhaustion, to wake up to his text and a list of missed calls.
“Please don’t be like my ex. I am coming on the 3rd.”
Early morning, I feel like an idiot. I dial his number. As usual he misses the call.
