She writes. He misinterprets. He writes. She saddens. Please, just pick up the damn phone.

I think we rely on the written conversation too much these days. Sometimes, you can't replace a phone call. So hard to communicate all the time through written words.

I completely agree. It's much too easy to misunderstand when you can't read body language or intonation / inflection. Don't get body language over the phone unless it's Skype but verbal cues can be so important to clearer communication.

I do believe that all of us have lived this at different times, especially recently ...

Yes, we've all been there at some point. I spent the week writing and have several to post so beware, lol.

*laughs*

Goodness, is it time to fortify the Castle walls?

Yes, and make sure the moat is filled and replenished with nasty beasts...

Done and done ... I had the huntsmen round up a few trolls and monsters in your absence ...

Well done huntsman! Must reward that man sufficiently.

And you as we'll for your foresight, dear one. I believe there are hot peasant boys in the dungeon...

*smiles innocently and quietly slips away* ...

Yet I was always led to believe that a picture was worth a thousand words.

That is indeed true, but an actual conversation is usually better for clearing confusion, at least in my experience.

Agreed!
