A couple weeks ago, I would say back in mid March or April I came across an article covering the song and basically it said how that with this song she hopes the lyrics will inspire people to take a risk on love-even though she's not ever had the guts to do it herself. I happened to take a snap shot on my Iphone of the article and I kept it in my phone, where it still is now!
I went to this technical school for my medical assisting) and well I started noticing this guy at school I would say around March/April. He would always be walking outside in school like at lunch time or break time sometimes I would see him. Always wore regular school clothes so at that time I wasnt sure if he was in HS there (they have HS too) or if he worked there or what. He would always park across from me in the parking lot, he would get there same time I did so thats how I knew about his car. I always thought to myself that boy is so cute but I thought oh he probably has a girlfriend or whatever the case may be.
I even had noticed he works at my local grocery store, I thought maybe its not the same guy but it was! Well I had thought I might try and be brave and do this call me maybe thing. I decided to one day cut a piece of paper and write Call Me Maybe on it with my number and name. Not thinking he might not know that song, haha. One day at school he was walking back and forth as he always did by himself and he was in his jumpsuit (does auto-mechanics I began to find out. He ended up coming and sitting behind our table and I was freaking out. But never said anything, just always would have his headphones in and listening to his music. I had told my few friends at the table that I have that paper (ready to go in my wallet)They told me to do it right then and there but I was scared I was way too chicken to give it to him. Plus I look so different outside of school. No way would he go for me in my scrubs!
I told myself next time I see him I have to do it though I didn't want this boy to get away even if it didn't work out, I had NO idea what would happen honestly.. Well it was Thursday (the weekend of Cindo De Mayo). That Thursday night, I ran up to the store for milk for my daughter because I was going to be staying the night at my friends house with her. He happened to be working and was outside pushing carts. I was like OMG, this is my chance. Well I ran in got what I needed then I went to get gas. I quickly made sure he wasn't outside or looking, I took Sadie ran quickly to his car and put that little number on his windshield praying it wouldn't blow away! I kind of wanted to remain a mystery almost. Then I called my best friend to tell her that I did it. Well maybe 15 minutes into the call, I get another call beeping in, I said let me answer I don't know this number-just hang on. Well, guess who it was!?!? DANNY!!!! I was in complete shock. I had NO idea he would call let alone that soon.
He said "Hey is this Jill?" I was like Yes...I was nervous! AH! Then well He said "did you put your number on my car?" I said yes...Hes like oh okay cool. Then he was wondering why lol. I briefly told him and asked to make sure that he goes to my school and he said yes. I told him I had noticed him around and thought he was really cute. I guess in my nervousness I forgot to mention HOW I KNOW WHAT CAR HE DRIVES! I think at first he was thinking I was a stalker. But he began asking how do I know what he drives. I explained to him how he would always arrive to school when I did and not many others would be there and he parked across from me.
Well he was like cool and he said he couldn't say much back because he didn't know who I was or what I looked like. I told him I was on my way to my friends and he asked if I could send a picture. I said sure. We got off the phone and once I got settled in with my daughter and got her in bed around 10 I sent him a picture that night of me, two. His response "you look really really good" I was happy to hear that. He asked if he could call me after he gets off work I said sure. Well we spoke for a little bit that night and then the next day on Friday we spoke for three hours straight! and then another 2 hours later that day. We have so much in common its a tad scary and he's too funny. Well he ended up saying since we both like the beach we should go and "meet up there". I was like for a FIRST meet up aka date or whatever you wanna call it, that's HUGE for me, esp in a bathing suit. We talked a lot that night before and I kept saying how nervous I was my stomach was in KNOTS! I let him come pick me up Sat (Cindo De Mayo!) for the beach. We both suck at directions so that kind of broke the ice right away made me laugh we didn't know how to get to our local beach! OOPS!
The beach was AMAZING. We got there and he made a joke at how wow I really am short. He thought I was taller 5'3 -5'4 from the picture I sent I said no I am 5'1 he didn't believe me on the phone. The water was a tad cold but I managed. Somehow maybe 30 minutes in we locked hands and shortly after he ended up kissing me! I did not expect that, but I surely wanted to right away but I thought NO way can I! It was just truly a wonderful time. He held me in the water because I was just so cold and we chatted and had a great time.
Well fast forward to today, things are going great! We are still in the process of "talking" and getting to know each other. I met his parents and he met mine. He has also gotten to meet my little Sadie girl, and we met each others siblings. We have gone out with groups to watch the MIAMI HEAT in the playoffs and things like that, watching movies at the house together. Just taking things slow, for once, I really like him and we have a great time together. Makes mama happy and I can really see something good in this. I am just shocked how all of this has worked out. I have NEVER given my number to a guy before. And it is a cute little story to tell. I remember when I met his mom he put me on the spot for me to tell the story in my words how I met him! Made me blush!
Call Me Maybe, and that he did
