Perhaps it’s a good thing that we don’t talk more often than we do, since our conversations frequently have results similar to this:
A Phone Conversation with Jason (Abridged)
Me: Happy Birthday!
Jason: Thank you! I bought a rug!
Me: Gasp! Without me?
Jason: I know!
Both of Us: Sigh… Morocco.
Jason: I want to go to Portland.
Me: Me too!
Both of Us: Click, click, scroll.
(A little bit later)
Jason: I cleared a weekend!
Me: I booked plane tickets!
Both of Us: Hurrah! A trip!
Jason: Well, good to talk to you.
Me: You too! See you in a different city soon!
Both of Us: Bye!
