I’ve learned a long time ago to never ask a question I don’t want to know the answer to. Questions like, “How old do I look?” “Do I look fat in this shirt?” You know, stuff like that. I supposed not everyone has learned this valuable lesson.
Hence my conversation with Mr. Eager. He was on one of his marathon single sided conversations the other day when he asked me, “Do you miss me?” I kind of looked blankly for a minute. I was stunned actually. He was on the phone so he couldn’t see my initial reaction. Here is one of those questions you don’t really want to hear the honest answer too. You want to hear “yes” regardless if it’s the truth or not. Well I didn’t feel like lying on this particular day so I just said, “Hmmmm….not really.” Oh hell, what did I say that for? He launched into this 40 minute tirade about how I was insensitive and I didn’t really like him as much as he liked me and such. I just simply listened and said, “Well I guess I don’t.” He hung up on me.
He called back about 8 minutes later and asked me, “Do you even care about me?” I said, “You’re alright.” He hung up again.
