I'm curious Dragon.....
What do you talk about on all these calls?
How long do the calls take?
How many phone calls would you say you have with friends most days?
I can be quite a conversationlist with someone face to face if it's something interesting, or with someone who lives far away, and I only talk to every couple of months.
But to just be on the phone with someone with nothing much to say?
This is literally a typical call I'll make to my husband once a day, just to see how things are:
Me: How's everything?
Me: All right then, I'll see ya later. I love you.
Him: I love you too. Bye.
For a while, my boss started calling me in the evenings and on the weekends, I put a stop to that quick....
She'd just call up and start talking like we were at work, at first I'd be polite, but after a couple weeks, I started saying to her, "can we talk about this in the morning, or on Monday?"
Lord and she'd always start the conversation in the same way.
"What are you doing"?
I think once someone is past a certain age, that's not a good question to ask, unless you're really good friends. God knows what I could have been doing, in the privacy of my own home :wink:
Actually, we never even answer our home phone, when the machine picks up, we'll listen to the caller leaving a message, but seldom pick up the phone. I'll call back when I feel like it, maybe.
I know, most people couldn't stand not answering their phone. But, I decided over time that it's MY phone, I can answer it, or not.
It's a very good feeling.
She saw me on my cell phone the other day and she said.."hey, you've never given me your cell phone #."
I said "No, I haven't"
So dragon, I bet you don't answer your phone all the time, right?
