Hey guys - know I've been MIA for awhile, but oh how I've missed you so. Thought I'd fill you in on some of the things I've been up to during my dating hiatus/winter hibernation from snow and boys.
My beloved Michigan Wolverines made it to the Sugar Bowl and won (don't blame me, blame the BCS ranking system). Michigan Football is back, baby - GO BLUE!
I joined a new team at work (three guesses who the client is) and they quickly found the key to my productivity...easy access to SNACKS!!
I woke up at 6 am on a Sunday to hit up the Jason Wu launch at Target. Picture the running of the bulls, except with women and fashion. I did things I'm not proud to admit, but pretty impressive haul, huh?
Oh you know...TGIF
Another less fun thing I've been dealing with is the rando re-appearance of Harry Potter Boy (HP Boy for short). For those of you just joining us, he's a guy I had a brief summer fling with and then he just fell off the face of the earth - no text, call or explanation. He resurfaced this winter, out of the clear blue, via text message. At first I didn't know who it was because I did what any normal human would do after being screwed over and I deleted his number from my phone.
Try as I might to deflect/ignore him, he kept popping up (ergo my Voldemort reference - why won't Harry Potter boy just die??!!). And I would get messages from him at random times in the morning/afternoon, so he couldn't even blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol. I thought that I had finally lost him until I woke up early on a Saturday to hit up my Dailey Method class to find another one from him..this time, late night. His latest text had me scratching my head again until I realized what holiday was right around the corner (oh yeah, Happy Valentine's Day all!). It was like a light bulb went off in my brain....HP Boy has turned into the Holiday Bandit!!!
As you'll see from the incriminating text chain below (identities have been concealed to protect the guilty), he always texted me before a major holiday, which all of us single folks know can be a breeding ground for crippling feelings of loneliness and seemingly endless despair (oh ok, just me then??).
Members of the jury, I give you Exhibit A:
A few weeks before Thanksgiving, sometime in the am
(Can't tell you when because I had deleted it)
Is it too late to apologize for not getting back to you?
A few days afterwards
(again I deleted it, so don't know exactly when)
I'm probably going to regret asking this, but who is this??

So Is it safe to say u forgive me for being a dick?
NO RESPONSE, but TC's internal monologue:
Ummm....no - that would NOT be safe to say. Leave me alone, please

Can u at least think about giving me a second chance? I have a pretty significant reason for going MIA on you earlier
So now I'm not only annoyed that he just won't leave me alone, but I'm PISSED that he thinks he can just come crawling back to me whenever he's feeling blue. So I do what any self-respecting girl would do...I text him back that I'm seeing someone now (total lie) and tell him to stop texting me/delete me from his phone. Because I do not want to be dealing with this sh*t on President's Day.
How about you guys? Any exes that still try to text you whenever they're alone?!
TC out :)
