Does She Ever Answer The Phone?

I love my phone. It is a handy camera and source of information and two words...bubble shooter. In a pinch it makes a mighty fine shopping list. It also means a lot to me because Ronny bought it for me because he wanted to. He's a keeper I tell you.

However, I hate the phone. I hate it. I hate talking on the phone. I hate calling people on the phone. I just do. I also hate the way the phone wants to rule over me like a despot. It is a despot I overthrew years ago. Now I think of it more as a pitiful servant. Because of that I spend good portions of everyday not knowing where my phone is. Because of that I am often asked "Why didn't you answer your phone?" or by the more persistent "Why don't you answer your phone?"

These questions aren't new to me. I wrote a post answering them years ago. They have been popping up with an increased frequency lately so I thought I would throw these answers back out again for any who may be wondering, "Does she ever answer the phone?"

The answer is I do. But I wouldn't count on it. For an answer somewhat dated but in greater detail see below:

I am with you on this one for sure! I hate talking on the phone. It makes my face hot and my ear starts to hurt and then I think I'm getting brain cancer because of the phone. So now texting is pretty much all I do....which I'm told is not any better, but hey who said that texting causes tumors to grow in your brain?!? No one I tell you...no one!

I used to actually like talking on the phone back when I could count on doing so without anyone screaming at my feet the very second I start a conversation (even though they were perfectly content the second before). Now? Not so much.

Can you call me so we can discuss this?
