The second, which is actually chronologically the first, but comes second because it's longer:
So I get home, hcolleen's not there yet, I'm off in another room, and the phone rings! She mentioned that she might be getting a call, I pick it up, I recognize the voice, and I cheerfully greet Bookstore Guy and give him a bit of a hard time. She's not home yet, and I tell him this; he awkwardly says that he's probably going to call back.
I realize at this point that our answering machine message is way unwelcoming, and I begin to re-record the thing. Just then, hcolleen unlocks the door, and I let her know what is up -- after I get done recording the message. Priorities.
At this point, I firmly deny that I poke at my cellphone, save the guy's number so that I'll be able to recognize him and immediately forward him to the landline when the call rings to my cellphone, and send him a text message letting him know that "Heather is home now. : P" ... so it was of course a complete surprise to me when the phone rang a few minutes later.
I also am quite firm on the fact that I comported myself in an adult and mature fashion while my roommate was on the phone with a BOY, and totally did not make faces at her in or out of channel, and certainly not in both at the same time. Nor did I use channel as a forum for sarcastic comments about the topics that were under discussion, such as screaming "Like YAOI!!" at the top of my lungs while she was mentioning her hobbies. And Abe certainly did not bust up giggling at me failing my "innocent" roll...
We have so returned to high school. Maybe even elementary school.
