Because you always have to have that conversation:

Cranks: Why didn’t you call, It was my birthday, you didn’t call for two months…why?
Jumbs: Well Cranks, yuh know, something happened, I can’t remember exactly what…
Cranks: Well let me remind you, nothing happened,
Jumbs: I’m sure something happened, I just can’t remember………..
Cranks: That’s because nothing happened…
Jumbs: I was embarrassed after, I wanted to call, but I couldn’t, so when I was in TnT I knew it was time, it was carnival, love was everywhere and I though of yuh….
Cranks: Cuz you’re a coward…
Jumbs: No, Besides yuh here liming with Lumsden..…(makes a pouty face) Sweetness why yuh carry on so, yuh know we is we,
Cranks: Well anyway I hope you’re happy with someone too…
Jumbs: Yuh know the only one I want is now taken…
Cranks: (Irritated Chupse)
Jumbs: Muffin….
Cranks: So what you saying if I was single we’d get together?
Jumbs: Cranks, I say what I say, Yuh hear, what I hear…..
Cranks: (Willing to call the bluff) Well, in that case, he and I just met, and I still care about you, obviously, so fine, you want to do this?
Jumbs: (Pin drop silence)
Cranks: Hello???
Jumbs: But I thought you were dating Lumsden..
Cranks: As I said, we are just getting to know each other, he’s sweet but you and I have history, I’d be willing to give it another go…
Jumbs: (More pin drop silence)
Cranks: This is exactly why you’re a Jumbie…(at which point my voice goes up a few decibels) Don’t call me with your ole talk, don’t tell you missed me, Don’t ask about my new boyfriend….when you think back in ten years why you ended up all alone, remember it was because you didn’t have any words….
Jumbs: Cranks…come on, yuh know how we is…
Cranks: Click!

Post Script: MU understands completely….

I was debating whether to call you back, but I figure you need some cool down time, dahling. In the meantime, I still have the birthday plans on hold...

I am over hear dying. I think of Uncle Gregory everytime I read your trini posts.. Girl that man is a waste of space and time. Good job on calling his bluff, he wasn't serious, especially with the way he came at it,all trying to soften you up with idle talk about him and you being together if you weren't attached, load of CRAP... I'm glad you called his bluff and of course he was bullshytin... GOOD GOING ((hi-five))

Jerk. Nothing breeds interest like disinterest. It's annoying when dudes start sniffing around when they hear ur dating someone else. Stupse.

"Tell he haul he mudda c..."

(A nifty little phrase I picked up from my Trini friends. LOL.)
