I and the telephone are not best friends. Especially now that I have a smart phone rather than a home phone. It is more than likely that I put it down somewhere in my house and wandered off to another room or another floor and totally forgot about it. My family always asks the same thing: “Why didn’t you answer?’
I guess I am supposed to carry the thing everywhere with me. If I put it in my pocket, am I not in danger of sitting on it? Sure, in the winter, I might have a fleece on that has pockets…..but then again, I might not.
My family knows me well enough that this doesn’t bother them too much. They have stopped accusing me of call screening. However, they probably would appreciate a much faster reply.
It was in that spirit that I found myself experiencing Today’s Perfect Moment in the form of a phone call with my younger brother. We don’t touch base nearly enough, but since he had called and left me a message earlier in the week, I felt it only fair to give him a call.
As for the rest of the family, I probably owe them lots of calls, texts, and email. Since some of them read this blog, they’ll probably be texting me soon reminding me to make good on that notion.
