Phone Found

I actually got my phone back on Friday.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I feel like I should mention that I just utterly loath telephones. I've had so many miserable, traumatic experiences talking on phones that I have developed a cringe reaction when it rings. I always think someone is calling to tell me that someone has died, or some other horrible thing. So most of the time my ringer is off, and when I get voicemail I think "I'll have to be sure to call that person back" but I hate making calls so much, I put it off and put it off until I'm sure the person who called hates me.

Irma Bombeck once said that adolescence was the last time you're happy to hear that the phone is for you. I used to think that was nonsense, seeing as how I'm such an extrovert. But it turns out to be absolutely true for me.

And furthermore, it's going to be gray and rainy all week. Grump grump grump. Tell me something happy, maybe? Remember when I told you about the beautiful gay man saving puppies? Come on, internets. Help me out here.

Damn, it's good to know I'm not the only one who does this. And I hate making calls so much that I remember getting in a fight with my ex over calling for pizza because neither of us wanted to use the phone.

Um, happy... Sorry, I'm back on John Barrowman saving puppies because you mentioned it again. :)

This is why Pizza Hut's online ordering is a godsend. I bless them for catering to us introverts for once. :)

And I'm an extrovert! But I still hate making calls.
