Talk talk talk

When I was in high school, I would come home and spend hours on the phone. My mom always said she didn't understand why. "You've just spent all day with your friends!" she'd say. "Why do you need to talk to them for hours per night?" She was right, of course. Yet my day wouldn't be complete until I would talk to every single one.

I've always been a phone person. This new texting phenomenon is useful, but to be honest, I just like to gab on the phone. Getting to chat with two of my girlfriends tonight was a rare treat and, I realized, that in this sense, I'd like to revert back to high school and do it more often.
