Wrong Number ... Right Guy ?
~*Marge Tindal*~



Three rings.
I answered, "Hello."
You said, "Sheila?"
I said, "No."

Something disappointed
in your voice.
I said, "Can I help you."
You said, "Do I have a choice?"

I replied, "You always have a choice."
You said, "I'd rather talk to you instead."

Then you laughed
and I laughed too.
We agreed it was
a silly thing to do.

For a minute or two
we enjoyed a polite exchange.
Then you said,
" I don't even know your name."

I didn't tell you.
I don't know why.
Then you were gone.
Wrong number.
Right guy ?

Well, Ms. BobbyCat~
This one REALLY happened a couple
of years ago.
He did call back ... and we have
become really good friends.

Isn't life just one great
wrong number after another ! !

Thank you for liking my
little slices of life !

Thank you, Denise.
I was reminded of the incident
after reading Elizabeth's poem
'Sitting By The Telephone.'

It's the way it really happened
that makes it so precious in my
memories.

The very same occcured one day
The phone rang in the usual way
But there was nothing ordinary
About this voice that made me tarry
Obviously no one I knew
But we really hit it off, we two
And so I used my sexiest tones
To match his soft and velvet drones
But then I realized he was not
A man, but just a phone robot
Oh, well, maybe next time
Loved this

well done Marge ... my wife makes a lot of phone calls ( yah yah )... aside from the tons of 'kiss offs' she contacts a lot of seniors that are just dying to talk to anyone and a lot of small children that are home alone and not well versed in hiding that fact

Marge, I'm surprised you did not recognize my voice.  You know I am such an admirer of yours that I could not resist calling and expressing my desires for you.  Then, as I heard you voice...I melted...and now have your sweet voice to remember each time I read your poetry.
Your voiceless admirer.
