Day 16

Someone or something you definitely could live without....

Ok, so this is a broad topic. I could live without world hunger, war, racism, negativity,my mortgage, that extra 30 lbs... long list, but I guess it should be a bit more specific.

I could live without a telephone. Random I know, but I HATE talking on the phone. I could not live without the ability to text, email, face book, or even better go visit people however. If I never had to answer another ringing phone? I'd be in heaven. I don't know what it is about phone conversations that I dislike so much. I even dispise listening to voicemail.

This does not mean I hate you, friends, for calling me. I love surprise calls from friends I haven't talked to in forever. I do enjoy an occasional chat while driving as well, but I have to be in the right mood.

I know the phone is a necessity in my office, and gladly make sales calls and talk to clients, but deep inside I wish it could all be done in person or via text message. Don't know why. I have no tragic phone memories or anything. Maybe I just wore myself out talking in my tweens and teens. I dunno.

So please friends, call me anytime. Do not be surprised if you hear me grumble when answering, and know it's not you at all. It's the evil device I must hold my ear against in order to hear your sweet voice.

I TOTALLY get this.
Case in point: I have a voicemail STILL sitting in my inbox that was left for me over a week ago.
Its very rare that I'll answer my phone. And unless its an emergency, its rare that I'll call someone back. Not that its acceptable, but if a friend calls me, and I dont answer, I ususally send a follow up email/facebook message.
But it doesnt help that I'm socially retarded on the phone, either.
