When someone you're dating, talking to, or sleeping with pulls a disappearing act on you, but somehow manages to contact you just when you're about to give up on them. They're holding on loosely, but not letting go. A.K.A pulling the 38 Special. This is based on the band's famous song Hold On Loosely.
I haven't heard from him in over a week, but he randomly IMed me this morning. He's totally pulling the 38 Special.
