When you are tired. Or Hungry.
I just got off the phone with my friend, Nathan, with whom I thought I had not spoken in over a week. I was wrong. Here’s how I found out.
“I’m so sorry! I should have called you after I saw the video (he was in a video at church that had him worried) and I kept thinking, oh man…I have to call Nathan, and then all of the sudden it was a week later!”
“Well I appreciate that, but I know we’re friends.”
“Yeah, and honestly I kept expecting you to call me.”
“I did, on Thursday.”
“I called, we talked, you said you were tired.”
“Nu-uh, no way, you’re lying….what did i say?”
“Your eyeball was gashed open, you were watching a little girl named Melissa or something (Teresa) and you were really tired.”
“Ohmygosh. That’s exactly what I would have said. I don’t have the slightest recollection.Are you serious? Do you PROMISE?!”
Maybe I should just turn off my phone when I am tired. I mean, good heavens, who knows what else I said.
