Okay gotta say that my lil drummer boy does not deserve the cuteness of this picture to represent him. In this movie/sticom I've been living lately I just got that cliff hanger episode or the scene right before the commercial where you get a call from someone from past seasons. This call was from an ex that will now be called "Drummer Boy"
I haven't mentioned my Drummer boy ex much because there hadn't been much to say. We dated about 2 years ago for about 6 months. I met him one night at a friend's birthday party & we just hit it off. We danced (yes he actually dances), and painted NYC red that night. I'm still shocked that he called me to go on a real date after that night 2 years ago. Times change, feelings change, people change, so he one day stopped calling & did the disappearing act because he wanted to be "alone" for awhile. Whatever. I was over it.
Fast forward to now. Sunday I get a call from Drummer Boy to go to lunch but the snow messed that up. Then today he asked me to dinner. Today we talked for about a half hour on the phone. It was Akward. How do you just start having a phone conversation with someone you hadn't seen or really talked to in about 2 years??? Akwardly. He knew the people I mentioned, knew the job I still had, I knew his friend's jobs & the names he told me...it was like 2 years had never passed...
Honestly I don't know what to do about this lil drummer boy. I was already in the mall with my friend Erin so I didn't want to leave her to go out with him. I told him let's do dinner after Christmas. I have NO IDEA what he wants from me. He said let's chill, be in each other's lives...but he didn't use the "F" word. Ya know, the "Friend" word. I was happy for a while when I was his girlfriend, I liked that he would dance with me...but that was back in 2007...not 2009.
Why is it that when your all psyched to meet someone new...aka Mr. Platform guy...or trying desperately to forget a mess that someone ELSE comes along and turns your head upside down??? I've had days where there is just nothing & then the plates wll start piling up.
I'm probably at least going to go to dinner with Drummer Boy, see what he wants. If he wants a friend, well I gotta see if I'm over him enough to be in his life face-to-face. If not, he'll have to understand. It's hard to let someone back in your life after they just walk out on you without even a goodbye. Maybe he's lonely for the holidays & was just looking for company? Maybe going to the movies with his couple friends & he's just sitting there alone has gotten to him? MAYBE after 2 years he realized he was happy with me for the time we had? Who knows...But I will find out eventually...What a tangled web we weave.
Somehow I am getting into the Christmas spirit this year, putting up the tree, putting the Christmas cards up on the walls, baking the cookies tomorrow, and getting out the black & red santa hat. There is a Christmas commercial that is just so cute it makes me cry everytime I see it because it's just soo unbelievably adorable. I'd thought I'd share it to end this post.
