*ring, ring*

Me: Answer the phone! Pleeeeeese answer the phone!

*ring, ring*

*ring, ring*

Me: Maybe he's not there. Maybe I should just... go. I don't want to do this. Why am I doing this? This is crazy. I should just hang up right now.

*ring, ring*

Answerphone: I'm sorry, but the person you have called is unavailible.

Me: I know they're unavailible, otherwise they'd have picked up. Doesn't take a genius to work that one out.

Answerphone: Please leave a message after the tone:


Me: Um, hey. Uh... Well, obviously as you're out, you can't answer the phone... Which is why I'm leaving a message. Obviously. Uh... I was just calling to, uh, see if you were, um, like, I dunno. I just wanted to speak to you about... something. Actually, I can't really remember what it was I wanted to say. Isn't it odd how that happens? Uhhhh... Well, I was wondering if you, uh, were going out tomorrow, with the others, I mean, because I think they're off to the cinema... And if they're not, I... I thought that maybe perhaps you might possibly want to go out... with me? I mean, you don't have to, and if you don't want to, then you don't have to, obviously, it's your call, and, um... Uh...

*someone picks up*

Person: Hello?

Me: Oh God.  I thought you were out. Sorry... Uh...

Person: Sorry, who is this, please?

Me: Uhhh... It's West. From drama? Y'know... ?

Person: No, I'm sorry. I don't know.

Me: Oh. So you're not Tommy?

Person: No. Sorry.

Me: Oh. That's bad.

Person-Who-Isn't-Tommy: Well. Yes.

Me: Uh... Okay. I'm sorry to have wasted your time. And the message I left.... Do you think you could, uh, delete it?

Person-Who-Isn't-Tommy: Sure.

Me: Oh God. Sorry!
