I’m 1 for 2 in the matchmaking game. The first guy I set up with this woman was some years back. They were doing some foolish whatnots and it didn’t work out. This was before I married. I got tired of him looking at me, so I passed him on to somebody who might want him. Anyhow, I am truly into the hooking up business on so many levels. It’s what makes the world go ’round and gets us in a heapa mess sometimes. Ask any politician on his deathbed and he’ll tell you. So I figure, I want my share of the mess too, whether that’s on the low-low or the free. Y’all feel me?
I hooked my auntie up a few short years back. After a year, they wedded on up. It was a clean sweep. I knew after a month of them dating, a wedding was coming. I didn’t make the wedding on account of an appointment I couldn’t break but that’s okay, my work was done.
Okay. So, last summer I had to get one of my ACs replaced. The guy who came was retired and knows electricity inside and out. I got to checking him out real good and figured him up to be a nice fella. Then, I got to thinking about this woman I used to work with who could use herself a good man. I never got that relationship off the ground then but last week, when he came over, my mind backtracked on this unfinished business I had to do with this hook up.
Alright. My fingers got busy with texting her and so on and forth. Well, he called her last week but she was at the beauty parlor under the hair dryer. He left a message and said he’d call back but he didn’t say who he was, although she knew ’cause they had each other’s numbers. She didn’t call him back. She wants him to call her again. He wants her to show she’s interested by giving him a call back. After speaking with him, I text her and said, “U got more years behind U than ahead. When that man calls, U pik up that phone. U ain’t got time to be playin.”
‘Cause they haven’t made contact, they’re both thinking the other ain’t interested. I’m like, Lordy mercy. What am I gonna do with these ole folk? Now, I started to call one or the other back for this hook to latch on but I configure it up like this. If they’re going about it this way, I can’t be the one putting all the energy into this thing. I never had to work at it this hard before. Besides, it probably wouldn’t work out anyway, huh…
