Well here we are at July 31st and my 31st post for the month. (Did you notice I made up the two I missed?) I've never posted so many times in a month before. I also had more hits on this blog this month than any other month for the past year. For some reason you people kept coming back day after day to hear me blab about whatever I felt like. Joking aside, I just wanted to say thanks for all of the nice comments. I love to hear that you like my blog. It makes me want to blog even more. :)
After tonight I'm going on a little posting haitus. Don't worry, it's just for the weekend. I wanted this month to go out with a bang, though. So I hope you enjoy this FOR REAL phone conversation Steve had with a woman on Sunday night. I promise I didn't make any of this up.
***Oh, and for those of you who were babies in the 80s, Steve Perry is also the name of the lead singer of Journey.
The phone rings at 10:45 PM. I pick it up and look at the caller ID, not recognizing the name or number. It didn't seem like a solicitor, so I hand the phone over to Steve.
Susan: This isn't the Steve Perry, is it?
Steve: No I guess it's not. But it's one of them.
Susan: I've been trying most of my life to find the Steve Perry.
Susan: It's not funny. . . . Well, I guess in a way it is.
Susan: You're not a musician are you?
Susan: Do you happen to know how I can find 'im?
Susan: You're in California, aren't ya? So you ought to know . . .
Steve thinks, "Ok, so I'm a Steve Perry in California, so therefore, I MUST know THE Steve Perry."
Steve: I don't even know if he's in California.
Susan: Do you like his music?
Steve: Not when he went out on his own. I liked him when he was in the band, ‘cause they rocked.
Susan: You must be in my age group then. ‘Cause I did feel sorry for him when he went out on his own.
Susan: Well, if you ever decide to give in and give up his number, give me a call.
Susan: This is Susan.
Steve: Have a good night, Susan.
Susan: You, too.
We hope you find what you're looking for, Susan in Atlanta.
