Here's What Happened.....

Ok, so I had a pretty interesting weekend. Friday The Analyst comes over. Eats and relaxes. Nothing out of the ordinary.

I call Mr. Construction to try and avoid a catastrophe.

Me: “Hey Honey.”

Mr. Construction: “Hey You.”

Me: “Hey, I have a slight change in plans. If you still want to get together then I’ll meet you at the place. Or else we’ll have to make it for tomorrow.”

Mr. Construction: “Uhhh…tomorrow is fine. One of my buddies asked me to get together with the guys as sort of a bachelor party thing since my buddy is getting married next weekend.”

Me: Breathing a sigh of relief “Cool…tomorrow it is then.”

So The Analyst and I just chill out the remainder of the evening. I wake up in the morning when I hear him leaving the spare bedroom and pad downstairs to turn on the TV. We just relax for most of the morning. It starts to get late and I’m starting to get antsy wondering when he was going to get the hell out of there. I had spoken with Mr. Construction and he was due at my house at 6:00pm. I walk from the den into the living room where The Analyst was seated and asked him, “What time are you leaving out?”

The Analyst: “I’m not.”

Me: “WHAT! I shriek.

The Analyst: “I’m tired. I’m just going to relax the rest of the day.”

Holy shit! I run upstairs and immediately dial Mr. Construction’s number in an attempt to head him off at the pass. I ring his home number… answer. DAMN! I call his cell…no answer. Shit!! I leave a message, “Hey sweetie, don’t come to my house, just meet me at the mall instead since I will be on that side of town anyway.”

So now I am frantically getting myself ready so that I can bail out of there just in case Mr. Construction doesn’t get my message and shows up. Just as I’m about ready to leave my cell phone rings. I look at the caller ID and its Mr. Construction. Thank goodness!!

Me. “Hey.”

Mr. Construction: “Hey you. I got your message; I’ll just meet you there then. No problem.

Me: Cool. I’ll see you then.”

Whew!!!! So now I’m home free. I leave and meet Mr. Construction for dinner. We are sitting there talking when I decide to ask him, “ Soooo….let me ask you this: If your woman told you that her ex boyfriend was going to stay over night at her house how would you feel about that?”

Mr. Construction: “No way!!! Nope. That would not fly with me at all. I’d constantly think something was going on there. Nope. Not happening.’

Me: “Oh... just thought I’d ask.”

Oh ok just asking

HAHAHAH can you imagine what would have occurred if he had shown up there with oh dude sittin on the couch

I'm mad he didnt ask you if he could stick around alittle longer I would have kicked him out for that...freakin loser LOL

Sizzle said...

i hope at some point he can come around. i have plenty of ex's that are just friends now and usually once they see us interact they get it. it'll be hard to keep that a secret!

JustMeWriting said...

LOL...GIRL, YOU'RE TOO MUCH, but how's he going to say..."he's not leaving"... LOL. that's wild.

laughingattheslut said...

You shouldn't have done that. It's going to come back and bite you in the a**.

If you just didn't say anything, if you really think that you're not at the point in your relationship that you have to tell Mr. Construction stuff like that, then maybe that would have been okay. But since you brought it up, you should have gone ahead and told him what happened.

But what's with the Analyst just staying over again? I'm not sure how he got you to let him stay over the first night, but a second night is out of the question. If he has a reason to be there, then he needs to be doing whatever it is that he's there to do. Don't just let him sit there watching TV and stuff. Whatever he's there for, get it done, and get out. You can't just be on somebody else's couch like that and put things off til tomorrow or the day after. He was supposedly having some emergency, and you didn't invite him over to relax.

And as far as him getting his mail, if he weren't being a bum the post office would try to help with that sort of thing. You can do a change of address twice a year with no charge. But if you don't have your own address and you just have stuff mailed to your girlfriend's house and like that, they can't help. They're used to dealing with grown-ups.

He's gone now, right?

Gurl! I'm with Soj's an opera in the making...but you did good!

abbagirl74 said...

I'll be devil's advocate here. How would you feel if your boyfriend's ex came over and stayed the weekend? Would you be confident that it would be cool? Just wondering your thoughts.

Sounds like you had a great weekend.

Vixen said...

Oh my gosh, why is he chilling at your house? I don't understand...doesn't he have his own place?

lisa q. said...

that's crazy! :D my only thought here is that mr construction doesn't sound very understanding or trusting...might be something to think about! *shrugs*

Jenny! said...

How do you keep them all straight? I'd be like..are you my ex or are you my current date?

Opinionated Diva said...

lmao@just asking...I can not believe Mr. Construction didn't take the conversation further!!!

I agree with Dirty Mo...tell the ex when it's time to go...he shouldn't be telling you.

You know Mr. Construction knows something is up right?

KIKI said...


(gotta say it again...)


How the Analyst gonna tell YOU he's not leaving YOUR house? a betta one than me cause I woulda packed up whatever lil bit of crap he brought wit him, set that shit by the door & told him he got to step cause I got plans.

And I have to kind of agree with queen...sounds like you playin with fire! Diva, it's time to lay down some rules as far as you & the Analyst are concern.

Ain't nothin wrong with pimpin...hell did a whole post on pimpin...but you gotta remember the number one rule...ALL yo hoes (in this case man-hoes) know about each other. I just don't see all this sneakin ending very well.
