So I was annoyed at one of my chicks the other day. We went back and forth via text.
Me: Where is the card?
Chick: Left it in the top 2 drawers. Actually didn’t take it this time. (Notice that he says he left it in not one, but 2, drawers? Neat trick.)
Me: It’s not with the other cards.
Chick: Well, it’s there somewhere.
After this there ensued a span of time in which the card was diligently searched for and found, in one of the drawers, it is true, but hidden under something.
Me: Found it.
Chick: My b.
So my question is: does that count as an apology?
I’m getting the feeling that all this texting is something of a cheat – a way for us to avoid the sticky emotional wickets.
I think I’ll call next time.
But he probably won’t pick up.
