‘Got any news?” I asked my husband. He was on the road.
“No, I don’t have any news.” He explained that he was dispatched on a long trip would not talk to anyone for a few days.
“Well you can have news other than from your dispatcher! I’m not talking about him You have other sources of news. You can get news off your (psychic) antenna or someone may call you or you may call someone.”
“Call me? “Well lemme just get my little black book out here… oh yeah! I never invested in one of those because I’ve never had any friends.”
“Yes you do have friends. You have friends! Your friends beg to differ. Your friends say you have friends and that they are them.”
He laughed. “Yeah, well I think I can remember the 4 or 5 friends I’ve had in my life, P. I don’t need to get a book for that.”
I changed the subject.
