I’ve learned over the past 2 years that I am not really a “phone” person. This actually distresses me because I’ve become more comfortable talking to people over the internet and I often shy away from making phone calls. It really needs to stop… the internet is so impersonal and I hate using it. It’s just so dang convenient! So when I finally do get on the phone with people they seem to be marathon phone calls… but there is one person that I could talk to all flippin’ night on the phone and it never gets dull (besides my hubby), and that’s my Telly.
Telly and I have one of those amazing relationships where you can go months at a time without speaking, and still be able to pick up where you left off. Unfortunately, that seems to be the trend we’ve gotten into as of late and I am not impressed. I called her tonight and realized that it was the first time in 4 or 5 months that we’d spoken. During that time she’d gone through some personal stuff and her brother got married. It’s official. I suck as a friend.
I don’t know how this always happens–maybe it’s my super amazing procrastinating skills. I always say that I’m going to call someone, then I put it off, and put it off, until SURPRISE!!!! It’s 6 months later. It’s like that quote from the Music Man:
If you build up enough tomorrows, you will have nothing but a bunch of empty yesterdays. -Harold Hill
I’m good at building up tomorrows, but I really suck at doing things today. I need to be better. Even something small like calling old friends and catching up with them, rather than waiting for them to call me. Take life by the horns, you know?
Anyway, the moral of my rant is that I miss Telly. I haven’t felt like I have someone to just talk to in months. I know the Hubster is always there for me, but I needed a girl friend. I really need a best friend. I haven’t felt like I’ve had someone like that in years. Everyone I get close to ends up living a bajillion hours away. I wish Telly lived closer… she rocks my world. I miss my girl friends.
