You ManFriend haters are going to LOVE this one. I swear, I can't make this stuff up.
Me: want to get naked?
ManFriend: On Easter morning? Isn't that sacrilegious?
Me: No, not at all. But if you are looking for a reason to not see me, that is a fine excuse.
ManFriend: I'm going to mass and your tempting me like the snake
Me: Gee, I've been throwing myself at you for the last 2 days and you haven't bitten yet, so I am not surprised church will win.
ManFriend: It's Easter morning. Thinking about God is something I'd rather be doing. I'm not avoiding you. I'm just worshiping.
Me: that excuse works for today, not yesterday. (and then I sent a link to a catholic forum, where really religious people talk about having sex on Easter...and how they are all OK with it)
over an hour later - ManFriend: I don't know what to make of that (the website link)
Me: that religious people have sex on Easter
ManFriend: Duh. I knew that. I didn't want to have sex before I went to Mass. A personal choice of mine.
I respect other people's religious beliefs. However, ManFriend has attended a mass maybe twice this year. If his whole thing was about sex BEFORE mass...well, there are a lot of mass time choices around here, it could have worked if he wanted it to. Also, he could have said, it in a lot nicer way like "I'd love to get naked with you today, but I am on my way to Mass, maybe we can meet up around 8 tonight" but of course he couldn't quite say that because I knew I wouldn't see him after either because he'd be 'too full'. So he really needs to stop telling me he needs to see me ASAP...when he isn't willing to find the time.
If you were wondering what happened the day before Easter (the yesterday from above), I texted him 3 times throughout the day - about how I was looking forward to seeing him later and for him to call me when he was on his way home from the Auto Show. Finally at like 8:30 he calls and he is watching the hockey game...and then he was like, I am going to run out to get beer, I'll call you in 30 minutes....and an hour later he calls and complains about the hockey game. Hmm. so much for seeing each other. I actually shed a few tears before falling asleep. I know I can't do this anymore...I have 26 more days to get through - 4 weeks = 4 times I'll see him. Then I'll be free again.
