I'm sitting and relaxing, editing some work and all of a sudden I hear a strange noise.
What is that? I've never heard it before? Oh wait, it is vaguely familiar.
It's my phone ringing.
My first thought is, "Who in the world is calling me? Don't they know it is 2016 and people don't CALL each other anymore?"
Do Smart Phones receive phone calls?
Of course I recognize who it is, it's that person proclaiming they'll give up their Flip Phone when they pry it out of their cold dead hands.
I should answer it. I mean, it is the first phone call I've gotten this month.
I mean, I don't even answer my phone for phone sex.
But, feeling guilty I let the call go to Voicemail.
The person actually leaves a Voicemail message.
A VOICEMAIL! a 3 minute 27 second voicemail, are they telling me their life story?
Who listens to voicemails?
Where is voicemail on my phone? I think there is one from my husband from 2013 sitting somewhere in there.
Then I feel guilty.
I'll just sent them a text message.
Then they'll know I had my phone, they'll know I ignored their call.
I could send an email, nobody ever reads emails.
No, I'll wait 15 minutes then send a text message, saying I can't get their voicemail because really, I can't find my voicemail.
I mean, I can't call them back, who makes phone calls these days?
