Well, within the past week I managed to commandeer Lovelyboy's phone number. So last night I plucked up some energy, courage and the incentive of that LOVELY cheek kiss and dialed.
I had actually called earlier but got the answering machine, this time I got a human being though.
Me: "Hello, is Lovelyboy there? "
Papa Lovelyboy: "Yes, may I ask who's calling?"
Me: "Well Papa Lovelyboy, I think your son may be gay and we happened to get physical the last time I saw him and my body is yearning for his RIGHT NOW. Put him on the line."
Papa Lovelyboy: "Just a minute!"
Background Sound of Papa Lovelyboy: "Lovelyboy, phone for you!"
Background Sound: *Spritely gay footsteps*
Me: "Hey there!"
Lovelyboy: "Haha, hi!"
*Momentary silence on both ends*
Me/Lovelyboy: "Garblegarble oh, sorry!"
Me: "Sorry, it's Me from about a week ago from you-know-where... you said good-bye to me on the way out..."
Lovelyboy: *Silence* "Yes."
Lovelyboy: "Well that was a fun night, I'm sorry I didn't get your number then, how have you been haha?"
Me: "Haha, well I've been pretty well, I tracked you down via Uncle Lovelyboy and I'm sorry to be calling out of the blue I suppose!"
Lovelyboy: "Oh NO, no, no, I'm really glad you called, I was seriously thinking about you... uhh, sorry I didn't mean to sound like that, and yes that's fine, how's Uncle Lovelyboy doing?"
Me: "He's going very well as near as I can tell!"
Lovelyboy: "That's awesome! Look, I'm sorry about that the other night, I hope you didn't mind it..."
Me: *Silence* "Oh no, not at all... is this too awkward for you, are your parents around or..."
Lovelyboy: "Out of earshot for sure, like I said I'm GLAD you called, I am! It's not awkward, haha, I sort of wish this wasn't a phone call but it's neat that you called and sorry I'm coming off confused or anything!"
Me: "Haha, well I'm glad that you're glad that I called," "so, I heard from someone else at you-know-where that you might be going to Rome or some such?"
Lovelyboy: "Ugh, yes. And I don't mean that badly, it's incredible that I'm getting to go, it's going to be for the first semester and part of the second one... so aside from Christmas and a week in January, I'll be there until around March!"
Me: "Oh, well that sounds lovely," "I've never been to Rome itself, but Italy is so beautiful; so what courses do you get credits for, for this?"
Lovelyboy: "They're university level credits, for Ancient History, English and two other humanities. When did you go to Italy?"
Me: "Well I fantasized about you and me there, other than that it was many summers back."
Lovelyboy: "Ya I fantasized about you in Siam, but tell me more about what you saw!"
Me: ", Will this be your first time over there?"
Lovelyboy: "Do you mean Italy? If so then yep! I went on a French Exchange and have family in England though so I've been to both France and England for at least a few weeks each."
Me: "Oh, are you in French Immersion?"
Lovelyboy: "Haha, anything but! I'm taking French all through high school, or I 'took', I should say... how about you?"
Me: "Wow that's the same as me!"
Lovelyboy: "Well, I don't mean to cut this short at all, you've been lovely to talk to," "I need to go eat dinner though!"
Me: "Oh I'm sorry!"
Lovelyboy: "Haha, not your fault at all. Umm... ok I'm flying out of Toronto onnnnnnn the morning of this Saturday."
Me: "Oh I can't believe I didn't ask!"
Me: "That's soon for sure..."
Lovelyboy: "Yeah, it is... anyway it would be neat to meet up before then or something, again I hope you didn't mind from the other night at the end there... I'm not sure what'll be happening in Rome and with me over the next few days though so mmm."
Me: "Oh of course, I understand; I'll probably be busy up to Thanksgiving too, unfortunately."
Lovelyboy: "Yeah, it's a real shame, so whereabouts do you live again?"
Me: "Oh, tralalalalalalala"
Lovelyboy: "Well that's not too far out from me at all!"
Lovelyboy: "Again, sorry to cut off like this, it's sweet that you called, and earshot is back now haha but they wouldn't mind anyway if you know what I mean. But we should definitely hang out in February or March, haha; or maybe meet up around Christmas?"
Me: "For sure, I'd like that; have you got my number?"
Lovelyboy: "No, let me write it down..."
Lovelyboy: "Got it, thanks! Anyway I better go eat now, thanks again for calling, nice to hear from you, hope you have a really great next few months and Thanksgiving; I'll do my best to drop you a line around Christmas break or at least March!"
Me: "Haha, glad to hear it," "I'll try calling around Christmas break maybe too to see if you're in... been nice talking to you, I hope you have an excellent time in Rome and have a GREAT flight out!"
Lovelyboy: "Thanks a lot, have a great night, it was nice meeting you again"
Lovelyboy: "Later" (he's got a smile in his voice with the end word)
Ooooooooooooooooooooooh boy. Well the phone call was a rush, the above is basically my memory holding true. It made me really happy to hear what he said and to find that we sort of have a good bit of things in common and we were both laughing and it was fast but it was cheery...
I feel semi-silly for reading into this so much, but it feels like it could be something in a few months. But then I think about all the nice pretty Italian boys and that part of what he said implies that he's already out of the closet and this is all just from one night and now one phone call!
I was stupid enough not to ask about Facebook and his internet, I added him though but I'm not sure if it'd be better or worse for him to be chatting with me through that while he's away.
I wanted to jump him everytime he laughed, I could completely imagine his face and blue eyes and yuuuuum. But again, Italy for many months and seemingly being completley at ease with being gay, and me knowing he looks very much fine... AHHHHH!
Oh well, thanks for the advice-givers from previous times, it feels great to have called him, I feel embarrassed to put parts of that up since I was mentally swooning after a minute or two on the phone with him and my language was dopey because of it, intermittently.
In other news, some relatives flew in for Thanksgiving and within 18 hours I have heard two derogatory comments towards homosexuality. Yay for Christians.
And upon some further reflection, this sucks because I'll be thinking of Lovelyboy for at least a week and be distracted and I still don't have the nerve to ask my in-school crush with teeth problems if he would be into me or not...
Oh well, I got some Kiss-and-Tell within the last two weeks, so that's pretty dandy for me.
