    It wasnt bad.. But here goes..

    normally I would say

    "Hey, this is YYYY, met you at _____ . just called to say hi. Gimme a call when you get a chance, my number is XXX.. or else ill try to catch you later."

    So I started off on plan and said "Hey, this is YYYY, met you at _____ . just called to say hi"
    Everything is going to plan at which point i, for some reason said.. "and... ", I tried to save it with "hmmm shoot the s*** I guess" What the hell was I thinking!!!.

    I followed that up with "well if you gimme a call at XXX that would be great, else Ill try and catch you later"..

    Stoopid..

    Well, if she's truly interested, and has a sense of humour, you might survive that one.

    Otherwise, she might think it's a rather odd thing to say, and back away from the phone slowly and cautiously.

    We'll hope for the best, how's that?

    Thanks East Hill. That was what I was thinking. I am hoping for the former because I did get to talk to her quite a while and she seemed interested. (Fingers crossed). The worse thing to do would have been to leave another message after that one .

    Whats funny is I actually kinda rehearsed what I was going to say and still somehow managed to say something stupid... man, Maybe I should write down things on paper from now onwards.

    Especially when some jackass at the bar changes the channel on the teleprompter to the baseball game, with closed captioning on.

    I can't relate. I would rather leave messages and I hate it when people answer the phone. That being said, I wouldn't leave a message for a gal I liked as I am married and all, but for other types of calls, I prefer to leave messages.

    Hmm.. I am much better dealing with people face to face than voice messages.. Email would be fine but not a proper way to ask a girl out.

    Hire that guy with the really big voice that does all the movie previews...get him to leave messages for you. That should at least merit a callback or two.

    Yeah I guess. Seems a bit terse but less room for gaffes.

    Man, it'd be annoying to get a message that consisted entirely of "hey, it's me."

    At least "Hey, it's [name], give me a call back when you have a chance." Plus a number if there's a possibility it's necessary.

    The phone rang after a week.
    I was out on my bike.
    A message was waiting for me.

    That is all..

    East Hill, guess she found it mildly amusing at least!
