So last year, my best friend and I coined the term 'Twilight Tuesday' (and no, it has nothing to do with the teenie bopper vamp movie/books...as in 'Twilight Zone') because randomly all of the craziest things seemed to happen to both of us on a series of Tuesdays throughout the year. It ranged from bizarre twists that happened at work or just some out of the ordinary things that would happen with our fam and friends, but then the term ended up applying to our relationships. For me, it obviously tied back a number of times to those pesky Boomerang Boys that I talk so much about.
One example of a specific Twilight Tuesday happened last summer. I had been dating this guy, we'll call him Basketball Ted -- giant dude, 6'7, obviously used to play basketball in college, and now worked in the Financial District. We had gone on like 3 dates and had been talking non-stop via message every day, and this particular Tuesday we had plans to go on a date. And of course, I did not hear from him at all that day so he obviously was ditching my ass (spoiler alert, he eventually became a Boomerang Boy earlier this year). So then, my bestie being as awesome as she is, came to my rescue and we went out to a patio together. Well, we had the most random and fun night -- turning lemons into lemonade, baby! We saw some NHLers on the patio, had some fruity beverages, and then out of NOWHERE this guy that I had dated before my #Kryptonite ex messaged me. Doctor Dave was this super cool guy who lived close to me and we got along super well, but because of timing (he was a resident at the time) our schedules never matched and we didn't really get to go out all that often. In fact, he'd randomly call me from the on-call room at like 2 AM, but after a while that's not as much fun as actually seeing the dude. So anyway, does he not call me and then we catch up for like an hour on the phone!? So interesting. All because of this random #TwilightTuesday.
Well ladies & gents, today is another of those Tuesdays. Goalie Boy is this guy that I had dated at the beginning of the year - in fact we spent New Year's Day together - and we really had such amazing chemistry. He took me on a super romantic date to Second City and I had a teenage moment with him, totally making out on the DWA at Bloor Station. (Seriously, who does that??) Anyway, after a while things fizzled with him as well, and we would keep messaging back and forth, but nothing ever really came of out. Cut to the past couple of days, where he's been messaging me randomly. And not the creepy, 'let's hook up!' type of messages, but actual conversations back and forth. Totally unexpected. Well, so we do a little textual flirting back and forth: basically he calls me sexy and I tell him that he's totes hot, and obviously he knows it. He replies, 'Thank you, that puts a huge smile on my face' and I go, 'haha, whatever you know you're a babe!' and he goes 'well I know I'm not hideous, but I've never been called that before'...um, wha??? So then I go 'well, you are. so embrace it!' and he goes 'how am I a babe, Mel?' and then asks me after that 'Anything I need to improve?'
Ok. What? Like I said. #TwilightTuesday
