Why Can't Sent Texts Be Deleted?!!

If only I could go back in time. Nothing as exciting as walking with the dinosaurs or being the Lisa in Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa. Nope, I just want to go back to the time right before I hit "send."

Have you ever sent a text that you regretted sending? You are typing away and all of the sudden your pinky gets a mind of its own, "Yep, that looks good, quit rambling, just get that thought sent. I'll hit it for you right...NOW!"

This is worse. I sent the text to the WRONG PERSON! Even worse than that, the message was ABOUT the PERSON I accidentally texted!

You see, it all started with a guy... Last week, a guy that I knew from high school in Minnesota, called me. We live an hour from each other in California, but this was our first communication outside of Facebook. It was kind of like a little fairy tale. He told me he always had a crush on me and I blushed, while thinking, if only I knew then what I know now.

We got lost in our conversation and talked until 3am. During that time, he rescued 4 baby raccoons. Seriously! Although this sounds like something right out of my novel, I am not making this up! He was in his backyard and I could hear raccoons making their unusual sound. The mama raccoon had been hit by a car, and while we were talking, he gathered up her young and put them in a cardboard box.

First he says he had a crush on me and then he rescues baby animals! Is this my dream guy or what?!

What happens next is a little confusing. He called me the next day and invited me to go to an event in Sonoma the following weekend. It all seemed to be going well, except for the fact that he is kind of in a relationship - whatever that means!

Today is one week later. I hadn't heard from him until I received a text this morning. Of course, I texted my best friend since the 6th grade, to tell her about his text. Carolyn and I were texting back and forth and somehow I accidentally replied to HIS text with a message about him!

This is like some junior high nightmare! Now he knows that I am interested in him! So much for playing it cool. How old am I, again?

Think back to a time when you have been extremely embarrassed. I'm happy to say that since I have discovered my Whimsical Sol, that rarely happens. Maybe it's because I am more comfortable with myself and can laugh things off. Another reason might be that I have learned from my past mistakes. For example, don't get out of the water in front of boys when wearing a white t-shirt and shorts when swimming.

Now what do I do?  After making Carolyn laugh hysterically with the news of my texting confusion, I sent him another text that said," LOL :)". Then I called him to explain. He was on his way to a meeting and said he'd call me this afternoon. He sounded really good. Maybe too good. I have no clue if he read the text. I guess I'll just have to wait to find out.

I am dying to know what happened?

I still can't believe I did that!No news. We are still playing a long game of phone tag. Now that I think more about it, I hope he doesn't remember that I have a blog. :0

Hurray! Embarrassment isn't fatal after all. Lucky for me, it's like it never happened. We've talked several times since and he hasn't mentioned my text. If he did, I can handle it. Good thing I like to laugh! :)
