Definitely The Wrong Number


There was a time when I was contacting my friends in New York City through emails alone. It was a constant 24/7 thing when it came to wanting to talk to my New York friends. If a day went by and I didn't send them an email, I would be so mad at myself. That's how it was back then when we were getting closer to each other. Now it's more like emailing each other when we get the chance. But we do our best to make sure it's as quick as we can.

Years have passed and we were still staying in contact through emails. I reached the point where I wanted to hear their voices on the other line of my cell phone as well. I knew what they sounded like, but I wanted to have their phone numbers. Emails are great, but I wanted to be in contact with them more than just one way.

Eventually, they finally gave me their phone number. I was so ecstatic. I wasn't going to blow up their phones or anything. It was just great that I had another way to get in contact with them. I felt they were teasing me when it came to that. There I was begging for a phone number and they decided to play with my emotions. Isn't that a funny way to show your friend how much you love him/her?

The day finally came that I decided to call them. I was walking around in the park and got bored. I wanted to converse with someone and my cell phone was right there in my hands. I dialed the number and the conversation began like this:

Voice: Hello

Me: HELLO PAL. THIS IS YOUR BUDDY ROQUE CASTON. I'M SO GLAD TO FINALLY GET A CHANCE TO TALK TO YOU. IT'S BEEN SUCH A LONG TIME. I'M FINALLY TALKING TO MY NEW YORK FRIEND ON THE PHONE. THE SOON TO BE BIG STAR. HOW ARE YOU?

Voice: Uh....who is this? 

Me: Sorry, wrong number.

Good job my New York City friends. Good job.
