Ex Marks the Spot

The weekend isn't already over is it?

It seems like just a few hours ago I was leaving my 2nd job anticipating the meeting of a special friend, but there was a break down in communication, it wasn't my fault, but oh well, let's move to Saturday.

(Oh please note that I've postponed the "Public Places" story for a day or two.)

Yes! This was my first weekend off where I didn't have any acting biz, family coming by, or required appearances of Mr. Rob Mack (speaking in 3rd person, LOL) . I knew that sometime before the weekend was over, I needed to wash clothes. I'm down to the last. I'm down to the tighty-whiteys and batman draws. LOL. Just playing, I haven't worn those since being a shorty, BUT the boy is down to his last everything, so I knew it was important to get to the landromat. But its Saturday, and I'm off, let's enjoy the landscape of the lake and call some females for a Saturday night encounter. Back to Friday night, I called Gina but it sounded like it was a baby in the background that was giving her a rough go at it, so she said she would call me back. She never did. I believe that she was going to Six Flags on Saturday so I gave her a reprieve on not getting back to me that day.

One of my prior flings, I think I called her Aurora in the past, was having a Birthday party on Saturday night. I called her Aurora because that is the suburb that she lives in, which is an hour away if there is little or no traffic, which is damn near impossible in Chicago. So on average it would take me 75-90 good minutes to get to her house. I slept next to her about 8 or 9 times without nothing ever going down. That's never happened before, and hasn't happened since. I call it the Desert Dick Debacle of 2005 (DDD'05). The situation was a head scratcher, it was like her whole family, including her 8 year old daughter (see parents, I WOULD date a female with a child. I just have preferences, that all) liked me a lot, and told her how good of a guy I was. Well I dated her for about 2 months, and after the 9th night of blue balls I couldn't take it no more and quit calling. She claims it had nothing to do with me, it was her and some emotional issues. But anyways, we're still cordial to each other, and she was having a party Saturday night and I was actually looking forward to it because it gave me an opportunity to be out and about instead of holed up in the crib. I'm not a club-goer, though. I hate the idea of seeing chicks that are half dressed yet want to know why you're looking at them, or chicks looking for some baller with his Range on 24's sitting in front of club, vying for his attention. But this night I put all of my quirks to the side and went out. And it was nice, to be honest. Aurora had a packed house at the club, and it made me feel kinda good because it was her party and people were in her face all night, yet she would periodically check to see what I'm doing, seeing as though I was a 1 man crew that night. Party on.

Towards the end of the night, somebody's MILF took a liking to me. I call her that because she looked older, mid to late 30's. My boy Blueprint's wife is best friends with Aurora (Blueprint had to work so he was absent), so she noticed the MILF all up on me. She egged me on to talk to her. Hey I figured it was nothing to lose, so I bought her a beer and we talked for a minute. Her name is Cheryl. Lives out in the SW suburbs. Pretty chocolate skin, tallish and skinny. I walked her and her friend out to their car, and asked for her number and she gave it to me right away. Wow I think history was made here. I've never copped a number from a chick before at the club. Now yeah you might think "whoop-de-doo", but remember that I go to clubs about as often as The World Cup. Once every 4 years, LOL. Not that bad, but you get the idea. So I got a MILF on the team, maybe.

SUNDAY MORNING, actually just a few hours after the club (so I'm running on fumes after just a couple of hours of sleep) I had the opportunity AND and pleasure to meet Dynasty, who was in town for a hot second. Wow, breathtaking. That was my thought. She is a certified DIMEPIECE. Beauty, Brains and Body. (Fellas you should see the...hmm never mind. LOL) And she's got personality for days. I don't know what's the deal with the Bostonian Brothas, but they're letting a good one go by the wayside. I even told her "You look like a ball-players' wife for real" LOL. If Dynasty ever decided to move back to Chicago, needless to say I'll give her a ring. or two. or three. or four or five or....................

After making it back to the crib, all I want to do at this point is get some rest. I'm tired as hell, BUT I want to see this movie that I'm supposed to be in called The Lake House, with Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves. I want to see it early as possible, so I can attempt to wash these clothes that has grown into a mountain in my room. Ok, this is a chick flick, so I need to see this with a member of the opposite sex. But who can I call?

Gina? I called her but she didn't answer. I left a message

Dynasty? She's thousands of feet in the air headed back to Bean-town....

Cheryl the MILF? Naw I ain't trying to call her yet, besides you can't do movies as the first date?

Virgin Girl? She would probably love to, but I ain't trying to go way out to the surburbs and I didn't feel like dealing with her nerdy self.

So I make a call. A wrong call, but a call to my ex. No, not Hazel Eyes, but my most recent ex, Southern Belle. I call her that because she is from Kentucky and has a definite country accent. I haven't spoken about her much, because she WAS in the rear view mirror of my life. We ended for good on not such amicable terms back in December, and throughout all of that I still called her about 2 months later to see she was ok. She told me she had a new boyfriend, and that was something I needed to hear so that I could move on. Me and her had a funny relationship, we argued all of time, broke up on countless occasions yet we really cared about each other, I could probably say that I loved her. But the bottom line is that we're 2 different people that can't co-exist, so being friends in the only option at this point. I hadn't spoken to her in about 4 months, when she called me to ask about some income tax help. Coincidently, that was around the same time that I was dating a chick that lived literally 3 blocks from her. But why did I call her? Well for one, I wanted to see this movie, two my main chick was MIA, and 3 I've wanted to see her since I invited her to the play last week and she couldn't make it. In the play, I get into a heated argument with my girlfriend and I eventually kick her out, and I can't help but to think that me and Southern Belle's prior yelling matches helped me in my thespian studies. She was the first girl that I've ever argued with like that, because normally I'm a mild mannered guy, really laid back, but she used to hit all of my buttons. She told me once before that she's been known to do that people. I'll say. So again, I knew that I shouldn't have called, but I did. It went straight to VM. I left a message.

About an hour later (after finally drifting off), she calls back. I get straight to the point.

RM: Please tell me you got a boyfriend....
SB: Why is that?
RM: Because I wanted to see you and take you to this movie that I'm in and I need you to tell me you got a man so I can be like "cool" and move on....
SB, laughing: I can't say that I do.

So after we talk about current events, I headed to her crib to catch up some more. I tried to sleep (see the theme) but she is a motormouth and wanted to tell me about all of the things she doing in her life now. New phone this, new workout plan that. We then head to the movie. About 45 minutes into the movie, I see Sandra head into a bar. I tap Southern Belle on the shoulder "Hey I think this is the scene I might be in." Sure enough, you see my black, baldheaded (at the time) self walking by as Sandra goes into the bar. And later in movie at the same bar I'm seen talking to some white chick. LOL.......15 seconds of fame, indeed. They completely cut out the July 4 scene, where I was going to be playing a bass drum during the fireworks, which explains why the movie probably took so long to come out. It was filmed in the early part of 2005, but it didn't come out until last Friday. I must say that the movie is very good. Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves are pen pals that fall for each other, except when Sandra writes him, it is 2006, but when Keanu writes her, it is only 2004. Its weird and of course would never be reality, but its a tear jerker with a twist at the end. Fellas trying to get it good with a chick should definately see this movie, and besides you could catch a quick glimpse of the boy! But don't blink twice!!!!!!!!!!!

After the movie, me and Southern Belle head back to her crib. Finally I can get some sleep. As she lays next to me, Lil Rob Mack tries to make an appearance but I'm fighting him off. Besides she says "you can't have any because thats going to bring up old feelings and you know how I am".

And she's absolutely correct.

As I went home last night, (sidenote: Gina called me twice at home, but why did she not call my cell? Just asking...) and as I'm writing now I got this disappointment in myself like "I just regressed". I'm mad at myself for making that call and putting myself in that situation. "But I ain't perfect - nobody walkin this earth surface is/But girlfriend, work with the kid" - Jay Z

I don't know, but for a change me and Southern Belle had a day with no arguing. It felt good. Is this the start of a reconciliation? I don't think so. I highly doubt it, really. Seriously. No more calls. Just friends, right?

Just friends..........

Until next time......

Oh and I still didn't wash after all of that either. Looks like I'm going to have to Lazy Landromat it. What does that mean? That's when you wash about a weeks' worth of clothes to hold you over until you get some more time. Don't act like you ain't never done it before.

Thanks all for Reading,

The Relapsed Robert Mack

(((Blushing))) Thanks for the beautiful write-up. I feel bad that I didn't mention our meeting in today's blog entry...I chose to just cover the wedding.

Anywhooo...the pleasure was all mine. Give the credit of our meeting to the Airplane gods for delaying my flight back to Boston. Otherwise, we may have never met....LOL!

Sounds like you had a good weekend overall, though. You're making me want to check that movie out. I was afraid that it might be too sappy...

Nah, Rob Mack, I don't feel you on the laundry quandry (hey, a rhyme!), LOL. The way me and my kid wear clothes during the week - I HAVE to keep the clothes washed and recycled! LOL.

Sounds like your weekend was good all around, though. Will catchup with you later...

LOL...yep..its funny how things work out. Rain isn't always a bad thing. The movie is a lil sappy...ebert gave it 3.5 stars and the IMDB messsage board peoples gave it 7.3/10, anything over 7 means it a good movie.

The weekend went by way too fast. I think its because I work so hard during the week, I hate to see it i had kids I know I would wash more.

LOL, I had the camera, ready and e'ything...but I wasn't nervous, I kept focusing on the time...but dynasty can make people nervous, just ask Javier the cashier! Dude was all effed up after seeing her, I thought it was funny.
I'll get Dynasty again in the future under a more time-friendly situation......yeah it was a brain cramp, and it wasn't Lil Rob necessarily either...but it was ok for the time being.

Please, you think a fine chick is going to make the boy nervous? Nope. Maybe, but not in this case. I was just focused on the time too hard that all...that's my story and I'm sticking to it..

THANK YOU!!!!!!! See that's why you're first on the daily blog readings, LOL!!! You come thru in the clutch....I got home last night like "Ok, she called my house twice..but she knows my cell, proof being all of the text messages i have from her" don't know, my cuz Tiger really likes her and is telling me not to let it go yet. I'm going to see how things are going this week.

Part 2 of the Public Places will be tomorrow or Wednesday. Looking more like Wednesday, I'm going to do a lot of blog catching up on others pages in the next 2 days.

Man you and southern belle were playing with fire right there. I always try to keep a good distance with my exes for awhile.

@slish: what's right about tighty whities. I know a girl who got up, got dressed and left because she saw that the dude had on tighty whities. Lol.

LOL, tell him Miz JJ!! (@slish)

Yeah I know I was playing with fire...but it was a while, like 6 months since the last time i seen her. maybe it wasnt long enough...oh well...

I'm sorry..I don't even know if she got any kids, we just assume she's a don't know what we call a women in her mid 30's with no kids...Suspect? (LOL, just kidding)

Damn. you are cruel. How about calling her smart, a diamond in the rough. I think it's hared to find a woman who is doing her thing - job, own place,no kids, etc.

I was just playing. There's nothing wrong with that at all. In fact, a lot of women are like that, they want the career and the crib first before the kids, and that's fine. Hell I might end up like that similar to my boys Zed and Slish, and I think Venom and Serial Dater are also mid 30's with no kids. I would like to be married by the time im 30 though, but I don't see that happening, but thats 3 years from now. Got a lot of living to do in that time.

Royce's Daughter
Me and Dynasty are just cool. That's all. Besides a long distance relationship would never work with me.

LOL, I got some work biz (not like frat biz or acting biz, LOL) that I need to handle right quick, then I'm going to finish the story.
