My true friends know that I enjoy hearing from them. They know where I stand with phone calls too. When it comes to contacting me, just ping me in IM, email, text or even a smoke signal. Just. . .DON'T. . .call. . .ME. Sorry. Well no, I'm really not sorry.
The phone conversations for me have been lumped into business calls. I don't talk much and just holding a phone trying to figure out something to say is something I don't care to do. I'll even write a snail mail letter. I just don't like the tele like that. But I do have a technolust for smartphone capabilities.
