My phone phobia

Here is something I’m going to share with you…I hate the phone. Ok I don’t hate the phone exactly but I do have some kind of fear of the phone. There is only one person I feel comfortable on the phone and that is the man I live with. On a good note about that with our phone service we talk to each other for free.

Here’s my problem. I am often afraid to call friends back…even though I really want to because I love hearing from them. I’m not sure I’ve always been this way but I definitely have been for a handful of years now.

Email is my friend and I try to stay in contact mainly by email alone which works most of the time. I’ve always been really good at getting back to people by email but with the phone I take just a little longer. Problem with using email and not the phone is it’s not as personal and oh so easy to misinterpret things.

So to all my friends I never call…it’s not because I don’t want to talk to you. If you want to say hi you can always stop by my blog. Hey, get a blog of your own and I’ll be able to catch up 😉

I can only hope someday that we can live through our computers.
