I love the fact that the only people you see
using public telephones these days are old men.
He still loves running the gauntlet and
competing with the 2 variables...
a). That the person being called is at least home.
b). That said person is in the near vicinity
of their home phone when it begins to ring
seeming as though I have already assumed that
he is ringing someone of at least the same age and agility.
Hope you got through pal!
