June 14 - So I have this random person who calls me late at night like once every 3 or 4 months. There's no predictability to it, so I usually end up answering the phone. The last time it happened my phone was (thankfully) in the other room and the next morning I saw I had 4 calls from a private number at around 2:30 am.  I have no idea who this guy is.

It might be an ex who had too much to drink and thinks that calling me is the best idea in the world. Like that Too Much Joy song (although I think the guy in the song is calling his actual girlfriend not his ex). I don't really see myself as someone so unforgettable that a guy would keep calling me years later though. I'm pretty sure none of my exes thought of me that way, so I can't really see it being that.

Anyway on Tuesday night I was super tired so I went to bed at like 11:00 and was completely asleep by 11:30 or so when my cell phone rings. Now I know I should ignore it, but  it woke me up and I've never been one to let a phone ring endlessly. I mean it wasn't really that late, and maybe it was important.

Of course it's a private number, but I do have friends with numbers that don't show on caller ID, so I answered the phone. I say hello, and the guy says hi and I say who is this and he acts all hurt I don't recognize his voice so I say look I've been getting weird phone calls, so if I know you tell me who you are, otherwise I'm gonna have to hang up on you. (This is an example of my too niceness rearing it's ugly head. I've always been taught to be nice so I apparently even have to be polite to crank callers in the middle of the night). No answer, so I hung up on him.

I have to tell you though that I totally don't get why this person keeps calling me. I have no idea how they got my phone number. If it is in fact someone I know, why not just tell me who they are. I mean seriously what is the point in randomly calling someone in the middle of the night once every 4 months or so and then refusing to tell then who you are? If you happen to be reading this mysterious phone caller, could you send me an email, because I really need my beauty sleep.

On a random side note, I had told my sister about the call so on Wednesday night she calls me at 11:00 and I was still awake. She tried to use a scary voice to freak me out, but I have picture caller ID on my phone and when she calls a picture of her dog flashes on the screen, so it kind of ruined it for her. I think she's currently trying to figure out how to hide her number.
