Hot Stuff

Somehow my boyfriend and I got our phones mixed up. I don’t know why I scrolled down the numbers, through his contacts. I know it looks bad to recount it like this but there must have been a perfectly good reason at the time. You know? Something like I was at work and didn’t realise I had his phone – perhaps our phones looked quite similar. And I can be quite absent minded and the way we handle cellphones these days is so mechanical, such an automatic manoeuvre, so that I would have been deep into his contact list before my mind registered: this isn’t mine. It wasn’t like I was snooping is what I’m trying to say – that wouldn’t really be my style. Anyhow, I’m deep in his list and there’s a particular contact that has now grabbed my attention. Hot Stuff it reads for a name and then there’s a land-line in the part that calls for a number. Hot Stuff? Check the land-line number, nope not mine. I don’t snoop so I don’t call the number. Instead I call my boyfriend. Who’s Hot Stuff? I’m more upset than I’d thought. What? he says. Hot Stuff, who’s that? He’s still confused so I breath deeply and explain. I took your phone by mistake. Who’s this Hot Stuff in your list of contacts? Who is she? Luckily my boyfriend is a kind man so he doesn’t laugh. Or maybe he doesn’t laugh ’cause by the sound of my voice he knows if he mocks me I could reach through the telephone and pluck out his eyes. It’s that restaurant down the road that we like so much, where we get take-aways, remember? Unfortunately, just then, I did.
