<<PREVIOUSLY: In short Drunk Mina trusted Drunk Sid with her phone a couple nights ago and forgot to get it back. Sid proceeded to take out the wrong phone and just start testing 'Bae' in the phone to have a heart to heart. Unfortunately Mina also had someone listed as 'Bae' in her phone so Sid proceeds to have a heart to heart with the wrong person (Kip) who thinks the texter is naturally Mina and responds accordingly. Two conversations and an episode of Three's Company later...>>
Hey babe you're working right now aren't you?
Yes I am. Kind of busy day. Can't talk but can text.
I feel awful that I keep showing up like he prettiest trainwreck ever but I feel quality counts. But I wanted to let you know that thing with CB is over.
I didn't realize that the thing with CB had started. Good to know. But you are too perfect to ever be a trainwreck. Though I like you when you're a trainwreck.
<3 How much you really mean that? For srs Cause I been thinking and I know I've been out of it and kinda awful lately but I had some ideas but didn't know if it was your thing or not but you usually seem up to trying anything for science so... yeah
Anything for science. And you've been fine. <3 I know you've been a little distracted with life. But did you want to come over and try things for science? What things?
Well I know we talked and there's like a lot of things we just don't say cause then things get real but If we're honest gravity is going to win. That and weirdly I stay sober longer. It's weird. But there are things and they are here right?
I was thinking about that deathtrap you live in waiting to go up like a matchbox and think ya know I can offer you more than that.
Gravity usually wins. I think I have a book somewhere that explains why this theory is true. And I like you when you're sober, but you're fine when you're not. At least you don't cry when you drink like some people do.
I was thinking, ya know with what we talked about before you said you like living where you do because it's 'normal' and having to travel on tour forever, you know I told you I get comfort in the familiar but I was hoping maybe letting me try to be 'normal'.
Our normal anyways.
Not that I have ever had a normal life but, I'd like us to have our own normal maybe. If not where I'm living now maybe find something that works for us. I know it's short notice but what haven't we tried before that wasn't kinda crazy?
Wait, you were going on tour again? I thought you were done with that. I thought you were staying. Do you need a place to stay? Because you know you have somewhere with me, you just have to say the word. I can work it out with you know who so there aren't hard feelings.
Well I mean someday I might. I mean I haven't exactly settled on Vermont but ya know you're in Vermont and California and Boston don't have you there and you have responsibilities here.
And I don't think Joel will mind one way or the other. Not much to work out.
But that's not important right now. I told you I think I want to stay
Why are you making me drag this out this is hard
Plus Boston has horrible memories. We're making better memories here
Then just say it. You usually just say what you mean. Why are you beating around the bush?
Where don't you have people angry with you? Stop breaking hearts up the east coast
And being a terrible liar and saying what I mean are two different skills mister!
Yeah, I'm the heartbreaker of the two of us. I'm the problem.
Just tell me what you mean. What you feel. Don't make me get bossy with you.
Don't do that to me. You know I can't help what I am. I can't control how people see me, or feel about me, and you're like all I have that's not superficial. Well mostly. You get the idea. Shut up I'm nursing a hangover. You promised not to hold that against me so let's not start that passive aggressive bus stop. But fine
Even autocorrect hates me >.<
You are not superficial. Nothing about you is. And if someone only sees how you look and how you make them react, then they aren't worth your time or energy thinking about them. You are not superficial. You are perfect.
I just think we should maybe think about moving in with one another and I can stop being a transient and you can stop living in a great expectations matchbox. I hate living alone and my world is less soapy with you framing in it. Just buy a new place. I know you like being all Mr. Independent and while I respect that just something different for both of us could be cool. You're no t seriously gong to make me say the rest in text are you?
OMG AUTOCORRECT I HATE YOU SO MUCH!!! STOP DOING THIS TO ME YOU SIDE OF A BOAT!
Sorry it's just so ducking exhausting all the time. My phone hates me. I had to try three times to even just unlock it. Today is awful. When are you coming home? can you bring me chicken wings that won't melt my face this time?
Wait you want to move in together?
You know I love you but you also know why we can't do that. You're one of the most important people in the world to me. I'll do anything to take care of you when you need me but I can't just decide to move in together.
Bunk. The hell you can't. I'm not saying this isn't a big move. I know there's things in your life that I don't expect to change. I won't bring my work home if you won't
I think this is a discussion maybe to have in person. I feel like you're ignoring things we've talked about already. About the state of us.
I hate this phone. I dropped it in... I don't now what that is or if it's my fault.
Yes. I get it. we have commitment hangups but when you told me to trust you I let go and I did. All I'm asking for is the same. Trust me on this.
I'm terrible at relationships. I get it, but I haven't actually wanted anything for myself in a long time and for once I'm happy and have nothing to bench about. It's scary as he'll and I've drank myself into a kiddie pool of jello shots for four day straight trying to work up actually just talking to you about this
I do trust you. And you don't have to drink to talk to me about anything. We used to bare our souls to each other without having to drink to do it. Did something break? Are we broken? I don't want to be broken. You're too important to me.
And I looked good doing it! I have pictures but the camera hates me.
You always look good. You were born to look good, much to the anger of everyone in this town. Just ask CB. First time he saw you I thought his jaw was going to fall off from him gaping so hard.
Yeah that didn't stop him from making me want to punch him from across a table or make me lose a fight to a dead deer. I don't think I'm allowed back at Union again
Look I know I don't have to drink to talk to you, but when you're not here the room feels empty. It's weird. I'm used to just being alone and I am allergic to attachments but I love you and I can't DO anything about that. I spend 4 days marinating my liver trying to convince myself otherwise. it didn't work and now I have heartburn and a trashcan that won't speak to me.
You're going to talk to ME about being alone? That's funny.
Why don't you give your liver a break and come over tonight and we can eat something and talk about everything? If you don't mind being in my tinderbox, that is.
Just because I surround myself with people doesn't mean I'm not alone. There's a difference constantly only being what everyone expects you to be and being yourself or finding someone who tries to see beyond the bookshelf
And truck you. You ask me to say things and bare my soul in a good Dan text and then critisize me? Don't treat me like one of your clients
You think I don't look beyond the bookshelf? That's ridiculous. Who is doing the critical one now?
THAT WAS A TYPO! Omg I metaphor in typo now?! wtf is next? Sexting in haiku!?
I'm not going to sext you, haiku or otherwise. Wait, are you mad I'm writing a book about you?
Not even a dirty limerick? Work must be slammed over there.
So long as I'm not a tall blonde woman again we're fine. You won't be the first person to put me in media.
She is a short blonde / You know I put my dick in / You know who she is -- Don't ask for a haiku unless you want me to be honest in it.
You need to work on your verse form. You know I know i'm usually the one that's told 'just sit still and look pretty, don't talk'? I'm gonna share. Just sit there and look pretty. I think it works better for you.
Hang on. Phone's ringing and I dunno who this jerk is but they've valled like three times
Okay Cpt. Bootycall needs to stop calling me and threatening me because this is tiring and stupid. So. House.
You have a booty call that is threatening you?
And yet you wonder how around people doesn't still mean alone. Nothing I can't handle. I could handle those two jerks at Union from trying to wail on me while trying to get my drink on I can handle some dipstick that wants to harass me on my phone.
There. I just deleted the contact. I don't even remember who half these people are. They can go to.
I just worry. If you need back up or want someone to walk you somewhere or something let me know. I'll do my best to be intimidating.
Look just come over later. We'll talk. There's a lot going on and I don't want to do it without you. Not that I can't, it's just I dunno better. We'll talk about getting a place when you're here later.
I'll try to get away. I have plans with the short blonde.
I do love it when you're facetious. Sure, I'll do something with you tonight.
And I'm not that short. I'm efficient.
That isn't the first word that comes to mind, but I won't disagree
Well come over later and I'll give you a few other things to call me
I'll bring a notebook to write them down in.
You think I can't distract you from writing? Challenge flapjack accepted, sir. Challenge accepted.
Keep calm and dance on. I'll come by later. Stop drinking, I want you coherent to talk to you.
I'll save a dance for you. Fine. I'll go find the saltines and grab a shower. See you after shift. Just come on up.
