phone manners

/ posted in: General

I gave a friend my new cell phone number. When she called I recognized her number and answered.

Me: Hello
Her: (Silence)
Me: Hello?
Her: (Silence but I can hear soft breathing)
Me: C?
Her: Oh my gosh! It’s you! Live and in the flesh! I was waiting for the beep!

Perhaps I screen my calls too much?
