So, I was trying to reach a particular shadchan, who was suggested to me by a friend. I don't like calling, but hey, gotta do hishtadlut, right?
The phone would ring and ring. She wouldn't answer. Okay, so I basically decide to forget about the meeting with her. At least temporarily.
A different shadchan called me up and suggested a guy.
A really great, solid guy. Really.
So we went out a 2nd time.
Still nice but not for me.
So I called her up to let her know.
"who's this, again?" She asked
I was a little bit taken aback. I mean, I know that she's busy and all, but c'mon lady, you just set me up with this guy!
I calmly responded "this is Sefardi Gal. You set me up with Mr. Likes Sushi."
"I set you up with Mr. Likes Sushi? When?"
She sounded shocked.
I was a bit shocked that she was shocked.
"Yes...last week. And we went on our second date last night..."
"I'm sorry. If you say I set you up, then I must have. Let me think. Hmmm...let me try and remember. Last week...Last week...hmmmm."
The background music began to play in my head.
Annoyed, I looked at my caller I.D.
My eyes widened, and I nearly gasped.
I unintentionally called Mrs. Shadchan-who-would-never-answer-when-I-call. She davka decided to pick up on the day that I did NOT intend to call her.
Let's add this incident to the list of Sefardi Gal's fadichot.
