when i'm traveling or away for a while, i often tend to forget to call vin. it's not that i don't miss him. it's just that i don't like the phone much. and even if i call, it's cursory and to-the-point. i prefer telling him in person.
he's been my opposite, so far, where it comes to calling. if he had a one-stop flight, he'd even call from the stop and let me know he had a good/bad flight and he was hopping onto the next. and of course, i would tease him and call him a little boy.. but well, that's another topic!
but then, everything changes. this time when he's off. i've been nagging him every couple hours. while he has made his absence rather conspicuous by the lack of phone calls! even when i'd called, i got replies in monosyllables or single sentences.
later, five phone calls later, he called...
vin: just got to the hotel. it's...
me: what took u SO long, eh?!
vin: eh? it's 2.30? how long should it take?
me: oh. different timezone...
vin: yeah.. lissen, if the net's not working, u can use dial-up, okay?
me: net's fine. i'll be okay.
vin: okay... talk to u later, then. bye.
that is all i get for calling?!
sigh! i now know how it feels to be on the other side of the coin.
i'm not so irked by the lack of calls... as i said, i am not much of a call person myself. what bothers me is the fact that HE was the one who believed in calling. and now, i've gone ahead and affected his programming.
oh geez! i'm contagious...!
wonder what he'll catch next!
