i called d this afternoon to check on her latest labs. unexpectedly a man answered the phone, "hello?".
"curt??? is that you???"
"oh, weren't you off last friday???"
"uh, no; but, i wished i was..."
curt gets every other friday off work, and i thought he was working today; so, i wasn't expecting him to answer but was glad he did. i miss curt telephone conversations. he's a real conversationalist, and he didn't let me down today:DDD
after a little small talk i asked him what d was doing.
"oh, she's out and about," he replied. "i just got off the phone with her; i called her on her cell. she told me she was buying cheese, she'd be home soon, we are heading to the beach, that we are having a FAMILY DRUM CIRCLE next week, and then she said, 'gotta go, bye.'"
he started cracking up, "a family drum circle!!!"
as he was laughing, i was lamenting the fact that i didn't get to go have wine and cheese with them on the beach:`(
EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE A BEACH TO GO TO TO DRINK WINE AND EAT CHEESE!!! (
then i wondered to myself if it would be against the law to go set at the riverfront with my friends and have wine and cheese...
WAIT A MINUTE!!! MOST OF MY FRIENDS ARE EN ROUTE TO FLORIDA FOR SPRING BREAK:[[[
back to my conversation with my second favorite guy in my world...
"she's so funny," he adds.
"cheese???" i say. "won't it get gritty on the beach:?"
a few more humorous remarks about the drum circle and speculation on both of our parts...
"i called d to see if she'd gotten back the rest of her test results."
"are you talking about the 'labcorps' tests?"
"no, she hasn't said anything about those; i don't think they are back, yet."
"well, i was just checking... oh, yeah, and i was going to ask her if she had seen where 'kristen from australia' had gotten in on our blogger comment banter."
i told him that the storm warning sirens had gone off here at about 1:30 this morning; and while i was up, i got on line and saw where kristen had commented about our crazy conversation from dana's blog from yesterday.
"i saw where she was from australia and figured she hit on d's thinking d's from melbourne, australia instead of florida."
small talk about dana's beautician, ceramic flutes, a large instrument store in west melbourne, and the drum circle (which curt was looking forward to until i reminded him d said a 'FAMILY' drum circle... ROTFLMAO!!!
finally, i said, "i better let you go... don't let the sand get in your cheese:D" (i meant it literally: curt took if figuratively:/)
"oh, i've got to tell you this," he added... "last night dana said she had sand in her clam..." (the conversation was going nowhere, quickly!!!
i cracked up!!!
he waited a few seconds (for affect)... "she was eating clam chowder last night; and found a grain of sand in it." she said, "i've got sand in my clam!!!"
"d trying to make a pearl???" i replied.
then said our good-byes as will was calling needing a ride home from school.
i love the beach.
i love wine on the beach.
i love wine.
i'm pretty sure i'd love wine on the riverfront...
i love, love, love curt/curt conversations!!!
i love laughing:D
