The Silent Type

Others seem to think it ought to be, or is already, spring. They’re playing Frisbee in the square.

I’ve been thinking about how out of the habit I am of making phone calls. I do most of my work via e-mail, which, frankly, I prefer. But when I do have to make a phone call, it’s like my first day on the job, and I really have to psych myself up to dial. This after I had them order me a brand new headset. I get neck spasms, you know.

So I heard the main line ring, and I thought to myself, “Nobody ever calls me. I don’t even make an effort to answer the office phone.”

And then my extension rang! It was for me!
