Trick or Treat

I played a trick on myself the other day.

So I had a brilliant idea.

I'm notorious. Ok, only semi-notorious, for making drunk phone calls I regret in the morning.

So my resolution? Add a few 9's before the number.

This has worked successfully a total of 2 times.

Fast-forward to the week after 9'ing the guy. I innocently day-time text him and he doesn't respond. I figure he's busy at work or maybe he's in a no-service location. After all, he does have less-than-stellar cellular.

Then I realize it's been 9 hours and surely by now he's been home within the digital network. And in the midst of my quasi-crazy what-could-he-be-thinking rationalization I realize: I CHANGED HIS NUMBER IN MY PHONE. Only someone at the 999-952-###-#### might have responded.

And that's how I played a trick on myself.

Happy 4th of July!

Lesson: Metamorphasizing numbers is effective only if you remember to retreat when you actually want to connect.

Funny, I think I might have been wondering "what happened to Cari" last month at some point to :) haha

It's so nice to hear from you! I sent you an e-mail and I'd love to catch up and keep in touch!

Without you, I may have never tried tofu and it's been such a staple in my diet since then!

Hope to hear from you soon!
