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 honestly say that nothing makes me happier than *click* Henderson hits a line drive out past third..."

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!
