Angel, I Hardly Knew You

My Dearest Angel,

It’s over.

Don’t fret, baby. It’s not you. It’s me.

I’m the jealous type. When the first couple calls came in, I was OK with that. But then they just kept coming and coming and coming. More than 15 calls at this point.

I’ve always been about sharing, Angel, but this is taking it to the extreme. I can’t do it anymore, baby.

I’ve tried to call. But you aren’t there for me. Lord knows where you are — or, um, what you’re doing, but you tell me you’ll be there when I call, and you’re not.

You tell me you want me to call, and then you hang up on me.

I was only trying to help you, baby. I was only trying to give you the information you needed.

Despite that I’m the jealous type, I was still willing to give you all the phone numbers I had for you. I even got a call today. And that’s what sent me over the edge.

It’s not that I don’t care about you, Angel. I do. You’re a, um, working girl — so to speak. I respect that. You’re in business for yourself. I respect that. I wanted to help you out. But you didn’t respect that about me. And that’s causing me heartache, baby.

The brief time we shared on the phone was so encouraging. But, in the long run, it seems, we weren’t just meant to be any more than two people with very similar phone numbers.

Don’t worry about me, Angel. It’ll take some time, but I’ll be OK.

    It’s for the best. In time your heart will heal and you’ll hardly even think about her anymore. Promise.

  2. Anna says:

    Could she SERIOUSLY be that busy that she doesn’t want 12 more numbers? Or does she think she’s on Dateline?

  3. Michelle says:

    I’m with Anna, she either thinks she’s on Dateline, or doesn’t have enough clients to pay the phone bill.

    angel is no fun. and i am disappointed in her. but not in you. mike, you tried to keep that relationship intact—but like Miss Franklin says “you will survive” even if it does rack up your phone bill…ehhhh, not good.

  5. L B says:

    miss franklin totally says “i will survive” but i changed it….i should probably stop commenting.

  6. I’m with Molly. Time heals all wounds. If she couldn’t see what an awesome number-taker you were, then it is her loss. Chin up, Mikey. In time she will become a distant memory.

    I find if you just delete the number then you will not be tempted to call again! It will be alright! We are all here for you

    Mike –

    If by chance you DO hear back from Angel… here are a couple of numbers you should give her:

    212-213-3717 – Hillary’s Campaign HQ
    866-675-2008 – Obama’s ” ”
    703-418-2008 – McCain’s ” ”
    212-835-9449 – Rudy’s ” ”

    Who knows… maybe she already has them… on SpeedDial! Whoa!
