Me: Talk about drama dork, do you hate to have repairmen come over as much as I do?
Larisa: What broke?
Me: Our broiler water heater is broken so the guys who installed it came out & said we need a 5000. dollar new one so now Rick is sending (friend repairman—name withheld) over to get a 2nd opinion. 2 in 1 day yikes.
Larisa: Ewwww yucky
Me: Yes. So I started laughing when he says (friend repairman) is coming because I just got over the trauma of the other guys & he suspiciously asks what’s wrong with me & I think oh great now he might think I have the hots for him when really I’m freaking out because I don’t like repair people coming over. Drama dork.
Larisa: Haha too funny! I know because you have to worry about what they think of this mess or that and you have to talk to them & or go around doing what you do like they’re not there but they are! It sucks!
Me: Pressure, stress, drama what’s a girl to do? Why do things have to break?
Larisa: To cause us all that crap!
Me: Maybe if we weren’t in happy relationships we’d like repairmen to come. Maybe then we’d take a hammer to things & say come on over big boy & fix this for me. But I have my own big boy so I guess I’ll never know
Larisa: Haha there was this one carpet guy we called him (name withheld) the carpet man. He was yummy to watch! After he put carpet down for me (friend) had him repair hers then (other friend) had him doing all kinds of things at her house lol
Me: Awesome! Desperate housewives, the Tucson chapter. I need my carpets cleaned think he’ll come up here? (sooo kidding! I already gots myself a man)
Larisa: If I only knew what ever happened to him :(
Me: Oh well I’ve got my big weekend coming up so it’s all good
Larisa: I know how fun! Finally you guys are doing something for yourselves! Think you deserve it! 6 kids and never gone away without them! Can you say crazy! I’m selfish I guess cuz I’ve never had a problem leaving the kids for alone time.
Me: Not selfish, smart! We did go away last anniversary & for Rick’s birthday & a couple of day trips & now we’ve caught the bug. Love it!
Larisa: See all this time! Coulda shoulda woulda
Me: Coulda, shoulda, woulda indeed! & (name withheld—repair friend) came by and it was painless because of course he was very nice & helpful & it really is good to have friends in high places because in my opinion if you can fix things you’re at the top of the food chain!
Larisa: I agree! Just had (a repair friend) help me out too
Me: Gotta love that!
Larisa: Yep :)
Thus ends the first installment of "Confessions of a Drama Dork" can't say if there will be more. Guess that depends on whether or not I have more drama and whether or not I decide to text about it.
So how 'bout you, do you hate having repairmen come or do you break things to get them there?
