Game Of Phones

The universe has a sense of humour; there has never been a doubt in my mind about that, sigh …

And, truth be told, nothing lifts gravity like levity and love.

Sometimes I find myself smiling and nodding through what appears at times to be the craziest of twilight zone trips as we journey back home.

A while ago, I am pretty sure the “life-narrator” (aka the universe) in the background of my journey heard me saying “my life is nice and peaceful today” and it responded with “Lol, wait a sec.” And that’s how it began.

While I was minding my own business (yes, it does happen), waiting for my kettle to boil so I could savour my morning tea, my phone beeped with a text-message notification.

And, like a good cell phone owner, I looked to see who it was.

It only took me a few seconds to realize that I had no idea who the texter-messenger was, other than they had a New York City area code. Based on their opening message, I assume they think they know exactly who they’re talking to, except instead of the intended recipient, the universe connected them with me.

So, I reflected some humour back to the universe when I decided to play a Game of Phones and engage with the mystery texter-messenger, and our “conversation” went along like this:

Mystery Messenger: Hey good morning… So reservations are set for 8pm for the show {includes pictures of tickets for a Broadway performance and dinner plans for this evening}

Me: Can’t wait; what should I wear?

Mystery Messenger: I was wondering the same thing for myself lol… It’s a bit rainy out.

Me: Ya, the weather, you just never know what you’re going to get

[Seeing that I live in Southern Ontario – roughly an 8 to 10-hour drive to New York City, I clearly have no intention of attending this Broadway performance, nor do I have any idea of what the weather is like there, but my newly found Mystery Messenger friend doesn’t know this.]

Mystery Messenger: It’s cool though, I mean it’s not pouring at least right now. Oh, and Rolly canceled too.

Me: Ah, what happened?

Mystery Messenger: He didn’t say, he just said he had to take care of something. He didn’t come into work yesterday, and he said he wasn’t gonna be in today either.

Me: I hope he’s ok

Mystery Messenger: Right – So we all meeting near the job

[The thought of meeting near some vague “job” on top of this whole conversation had me laughing to myself, and I called over my son and his girlfriend to join in on the fun – I wasn’t interested in giving the giggle up just yet.]

Me: Yeah the job, per usual

Mystery Messenger: Around what time are you coming up so I’ll know what time I should leave

Me: When are you gonna be there; I don’t want to be too early or too late.

Mystery Messenger: I’ll say by 6:30 or so, at least before 7

Me: That’s what I was thinking too; I’ll see you then

[This whole exchange happened well before noon, and after sending my final message I heard nothing back – assuming they realized their mistake, I moved on with my day.]

[6:25pm rolls around and, to my surprise, I receive another message!!]

Mystery Messenger: Just meet at the actual spot I’m on my way now

Me: I just got out of the bath!! [which was true by the way]

Mystery Messenger: Lol. {sends me the address}

Me: I’d tell you not to order dinner until I get there, but I’m going to be late.

Mystery Messenger: We gonna order at 8. The reservation is for 8.

Me: I don’t think I’m going to make it – it’s going to take me like, 8 hours to get there!

[Sends an emoji and I now assume that the texter-messenger knows they’ve been messaging with the unintended recipient]

[Two weeks later, I receive a new message!!!!]

Mystery Messenger: Yo

[I can’t believe they’re messaging me again!]

Me: What’s up

Mystery Messenger: I’m about to head out what time you think you be there

Me: No way, I’ve got another bath running! [which was true again!!]

And that was the end of my Game of Phones; no fire-breathing flying dragons were involved and no kingdoms lost or conquered.

This little game brought me really good belly laughter, way more fun than back in the day when we were kids and would listen in on a party-line phone conversation until we got caught.

Bring belly laughter into your life, stay human, and Love every moment of it!
