Princess for PM!

My ex-boyfriend sent me a text message today saying, that while watching CNN, it occurred to him that I would be a good politician.

Ummmm.... thanks?

If I was being really cynical I'd say that he's indirectly trying to call you a scheming witch...

Which of course means that he hasn't forgiven you for breaking up with him, but is still feeling a bit lonely/horny, yadda yadda yadda...

Menu -> Messages -> DELETE!

Agreeing with ant. Odd way of getting in touch with you... How long ago did you two call it quits?

Beth said...

Not knowing you (or your ex) very well, I'm left to simply wonder.
A politician? Are you bilingual, diplomatic, do you fabricate well, are you easily swayed by popular opinion, do you seek power and fame? (The list is endless.)

LMizzle said...

HAHAHA, man exes are something else...

Eve said...

That is strange. I agree with Ant.

It sounds like he's stewing...

I don't know if it was quite as malicious as it may have sounded. We are generally on friendly terms. I also wondering if alcohol may have been added to the equation, considering the weird nature of the texts that followed.
He seemed to think I would genuinely be good at it... he said something like "I won't always agree with you but give it a thought." But he also said "Like I say just a thought. I think you'd be good, I know I always hated debating you."

... although I may be inferring a lot from a text message.

Ant- I don't know if he was lonely, because he then commented on how his girlfriend was over and she didn't like him talking to me, but he didn't care. Huh?

Indy J (your new nickname ;) )- We are usually in touch once ot twice a week. We split up near the end of last summer... so 6 or 7 months ago. We were together for over 6 years, though.

Beth- I am bilingual and diplomatic (I would think), but a horrible liar and not too driven by power. We used to disagree on a lot of political issues, and I am pretty strongwilled and willing to defend my point, so I think that's what this is about. He didn't like that I could school him ;).

Lmizzle- You can say that again!

Eve- Yeah, he isn't too good at expressing things directly, so this could be some passive-aggressive stewing.

Princess Pointful said...

Haha... if you all didn't believe that I overthink as much as I claim, my last comment surely proved you wrong!

Jocelyn said...

I can't believe he was able to stay conscious while watching C-Span. Maybe he just means you're boring?

Dorky Dad said...

He's probably telling you that you are popular and charismatic and you love begging people for money. There. I just described every politician in the country. At least the good ones.

Princess Pointful said...

I think I will take Dorky Dad's interpretation (except for the money part)... though, Jocelyn, this same guy can also watch the Weather Network for hours on end!

That's a dubious compliment, to be sure. You were wise to send it to the international discussion panel!

How are you today? Sleeping no doubt.

Peace out, Princess.
