Telephone Love

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 9 June 2022, ring.

A romantic young man from Argyll,
Asked a girl for her number. She smiled.
When the chap, still enthralled,
Found the courage and called,
The voice said, “I’m afraid you misdialled.”

Happened to me once, when I was only about sixteen. I saw this stunning girl at some function or other. I was far too shy to actually talk to her but at the end of the evening I somehow summoned up the courage to ask her for her phone number. When I called it, they’d never heard of her – she’d obviuously given me the wrong number just to get rid!

Best looking woman I didn’t quite go out with!


    • I know it’s in Scotland but not sure where. I suspect that’s what I’d do too, tbh. If you’re gonna reject someone’s advances, better to do that than risk a confrontation.
      Plus in my case it was the pre-cellphone era.
