One Phone Call

I went over to Hannah's Parents' house today for her Mother's day phone call.  It was great to hear her voice again, but it scares me a little how different it sounds.  I don't think it's different because it's change, more so that I'm just forgetting how it sounded in the first place.


In real-life I'm not really a phone talker, as I mention I could go through a couple thousand text messages in a day, but talk?  Hmm... Not so much.  Today, however, I had probably one of the longest phone conversations since middle school, you know the phone calls I'm talking about... TeeHee.  Even so, this phone call was painfully short.  The thing you take for granted in a real-time conversation is it it evolves over time.  In a letter everything is so structured Greeting, Response, Inquery, Farewell.  In real-time you can jump from one subject to the next and who knows where it will go.


I had almost forgotten how easy it was to talk to Hannah, but really that's huge dating criteria.  It's also probably the reason things with Brandy will eventually go no where.  I hate searching for something to say that a girl may have a response to, with Hannah I could say just about anything and a conversation, many times a deep one, will spout.  Seriously, anything from "I think Humans were the genetic experiment of an alien race" to, "Iron Man(I'm totally PSYCHED to see the new movie tomorrow) would kick Batman's Trash." to "I think that human cloning and other genetic engineering is completely acceptable."  Even if she has no idea what I'm talking about she could find a way to make a conversation out of it.  That's pretty much how the phone call went, I have all of these things I want to talk to her about, I value what she thinks about things greatly, so after we got through the, hey-how-are-yous we dropped into a 25 minute long discussion where we jumped through about 15 subjects.


Unfortunately, Hannah's family has the late church so I was strapped for time, it sucks when a good discussion has to end abruptly.  Well, there's always Christmas...

I have a suggestion- Could you please add the date to your posts?

How long are Mother's Day phone calls? If I was her mom, I'd be ticked if you stole half the time! Haha. I've always been a "phone talker." I can't believe that a 25 minute conversation is the longest you've had since middle school....

I don't know, apparently they're as long as you want... The whole phone call lasted about two hours. Don't worry, I went last but I was a good sport.

I'm more of a texter, and when I get one of those "I need to talk" calls I just tell them I'll be over in a minute. I fare better face to face, when I can read facial expressions.
