— A note I wrote to a friend today. (via johncarney)
"I never know when to call people anymore. It’s like a skill that I’ve lost. During the day, no one is home because everyone is at work. And at work they’re too busy to talk. Or, if they don’t work, they’re at lunch all day. Around other people. Talking on the phone would be rude. At night, it’s dinner time. Or their favorite show is on. Or they’re in bed already. Maybe because we don’t call people anymore we’ve just squeezed out the opportunity for phone calls altogether."
