i can do a lot of things in my car.
things i can't do at any speed:
figure out my cell phone.
i am consistently outsmarted by my cell phone. just ask HimSelf. i am doomed, forever and a day, to sound like a sputtering fool on the phone with him.
first time i called him, we swapped voice mails. and when i was down in his town, i took one last shot at calling. it didn't go well. not at all. rush of 5th grade, all over again.
and pretty much, that's set the tone for our phone interaction. i've accidentally hung up on him, gotten confused by my phone beeping at me and hung up on his voice mail, left various incoherent messages that get cut off halfway thru... it's gotten to the point where he doesn't expect to talk to me on the phone. i'm pretty sure he said something about email in his last message.
oh, yeah. only pretty sure, because for some reason, i can never actually *hear* his entire message when he calls me.
i'm just fated to be a phone idiot around HimSelf.
