-Stranger text to my friend's phone: "A, n**ga got my shoes?"
~Friend's text back to stranger: "Ummm, I'm thinking you have the wrong person!"
-Stranger: "Que, is that you? Don't play dumb n**ga!"
~Friend (with a little help from me): "I'm not dumb, but I'm a white woman!"
At this point my friend and I are dying laughing!!!
~Friend: "You have the wrong number!"
~Friend: "It's okay, hope you get your shoes."
-Stranger: "LOL, yeah me too and sorry once again!"
More laughter at the table! OUT LOUD cracking up!!
~Friend: "No problem."
-Stranger: "But anyways, if you don't mind me asking, how are you?"
Okay, now apparently he thinks he can start flirting!!!! How hilarious is that!?
~Friend: "Fine but I'm a grown married white woman with 2 kids!"
Stranger was stopped dead in his tracks! The end! =) LOL!!!!
There are many things that came out of that call. First, my friend said to me, "How weird that I got that message when I was with you!" Ya know, me being married to a black man and all....I WOULD be with her for the "N" word text! Odds!? It still makes me cringe to see the "N" word being used so flippantly even though I know he meant it as a "friendly" gesture to his "homey." I will never understand that, ever. The "kids" just don't get the history of the word and they think it's so cool. It's so not!
That aside, it just cracks me up that I can be out having lunch with a friend and something as simple as a wrong number becomes a hilarious story for my blog. As I said on a previous post, I don't ever seek this stuff out, it just keeps coming at me! Day, after day! =) I also stated that some days the stories will be deep and inspirational and some days the stories will be silly and fun. Hopefully this one gave you a giggle! It's a welcome relief to have the "funny stuff" regarding race come up once in a while. Laughter is good for the soul, and we laughed HARD....all from a CRAZY "wrong number!?"
