One of my friends made a phone call yesterday and the recipient picked up. When she asked him a question, he replied, “I’ll have to get back to you. I’m about to take this exam that starts in about three minutes.”
She was taken aback and bordered on scolding him playfully. “Then why did you pick up?” she asked.
“You don’t call often. I figured it was important,” he replied.
To the friends who pick up – regardless of how often we call – thank you.
