He Dropped His Phone In A Toilet

13 Dec

Sometimes you don’t get the phone call you want.

You’re sitting there waiting for someone to call but know he wont.

So sometimes I play this game.

Why isn’t he calling?

Well he wanted to call but when he tried he dropped the phone in the toilet.

And then he wanted to call so badly that he reached in and got electrocuted.

And then screaming about how badly he needed to get to a phone he ran across the street and got in an accident.

And so on and so forth until he’s in Australia getting chased by koalas and you’re laughing so hard that you’re not upset about the lack of ringing anymore.

It’s not so much about imagining him getting hurt.  It’s more about imaging the most ridiculous of situations.  Sending him to the far corners of the earth in his quest to contact you.

Added benefit: it explains why he hasn’t called, while still letting him be a good guy.  Letting you lie to yourself that he likes you.

And then you’re laughing with your friend instead of waiting by the phone.

I’m not saying it’s the healthiest game ever.  But there are far worse.

Greg Behrendt is much smarter.  No games, no lying to yourself.  Just forward motion.

“If the guy you’re dating doesn’t seem to be completely into you, or you feel the need to start ‘figuring him out,’ please consider the glorious thought that he might just not be that into you. And then free yourself to go find someone that is.”
~ He’s Just Not That Into You
