“t”: hey, they have won 2 games this year!
“t”: that is as many as they won all of last year
me: by default and because of where I'm from I woud root for the steelers, but I never watch them so I never root for them

“t”: brb..phone
“t”: I have to get going...
“t”: one of the switches is having issues
“t”: bye for now
me: hey
me: you could wait for me to say bye
me: :-(

What a shit way to end a conversation…. Mostly I like “t”, mostly I wonder if he’s not just sometimes bored in Afghanistan. Mostly I don’t talk to him enough to know most of what I wonder about. So I don’t know why I assume he’s bored, when he’s mostly never around because he’s busy. Mostly its just text and nothing substantial that I can depend upon. Words, words are amazing, the power that they hold. I think he’s a nice guy fighting a war. I have no words for what I think and feel about it all.

I really am tired of having the majority of my conversations in life take place in text or over the phone lines. It’s growing thin. Fast.
