The other night I came up with part of the conversation. The rest of it kinda delevoped along the way. So here is a bit more of Matthew and Tammy's late night event.
I remember her question and I wish I had a witty response for it. The evening slowly coming back in snippits. Amazing what the mind ponders while your riding in a bus. I should be happy as I enjoy my job but I keep thinking about the previous night. I wonder if the conversation coming back to me will distract me for the rest of the evening? I know its definitely distracting now.
"So shall we go down the list?"
"There is a list?"
"Yeah there is...."
"Are you really curious or is this to fill up the time?"
"ouch.. To fill up the time of course.. That way when I forget it wont matter."
"I thought I was the one with the memory problem?"
"Sorry I did not mean that in any mean or cruel way. I do forget thing though."
"No problem. Riding in your car has me on the defensive. Do you race part time or aspire to be a getaway driver?"
"Na.. I am just proud of my 'bird and enjoy driving."
After the initial tension and after I relaxed a bit the conversation lightened up. The stupid but funny comments I barely remember.
"Do you ever wonder?"
"Everyday. Sometimes every hour I question."
"What is it like?"
"I do not remember."
"Haha very funny. How has your family been dealing with it?"
"I do not know. I rarely talk to them. They have their lives to live and deal with and well... They do not feel like my family. I did not even go to Thanksgivings or Christmas last year."
"Sounds like a lonely existence."
"Thanks for the support. Just remember your hanging out with this loser willingly."
"Yeah hopefully noone I know will see me here." I flashed her a hurt look and she smiled back. I knew she was playing.
"How about you? Aside from the car and the removal of 180 pounds of flesh how are you doing?"
"lonely also. My family live in Texas so I rarely visit or really hear from them. So they live their lives and I live mine. Kind of like your life. Except I have memories of getting my butt spanked when I did something stupid."
"Even having those memories would be nice."
"Do you want to be spanked?" She ended the sentence with a giggle and as it sunk into my mind I blushed.
"Well perhaps I should quit on a high note. I have successfully made you blush. Heck I could never do that while you were in the hospital."
"Things are different now. That's why."
"What things are different?"
"Well for one... I can fight back!" I threw an ice cube at her face. She turned up and to the side to avoid it hitting her mouth. Since my aim was horrid it hit under her chin and took a downward route along her neck. Then it slide down her chest under her shirt.
"EEP!!!" She cried out. Now that I remember her little dance as the cold ice cube chilled her I laugh but I remember being worried I upset her while it was happening. The thought made me laugh and I realized some people on the bus were looking at me funny. Since I have already made a scene I might as well enjoy a good laugh.
I was still giggling after I got off the bus at work.
