a watched phone never rings

Ever drive yourself nuts waiting for a phone call?

Check your phone incessantly?

To make sure that it's ON?


Lights up?

Still accepts incoming calls?

Hasn't lost it's battery?

Chain yourself to your desk waiting? (even though you have a cell phone that's, well, portable?)

Put your cell phone in your pocket so you can get up and get a drink, but then worry it won't ring because it's upside down?

Refrain from going to the Ladies' Room because cell coverage could be a little spotty in the stall?

Check your phone one more time because, well, it might spontaneously shut off because you're talking about it?*

*What? It totally could!

Did you ever get your call?

That brings back memories of my
early 20's, only I was pathetically waiting for a call from a boy. I'm sure your phone call has meaning, mine, not so much.

I've been there. And it always reminds me of being a teenager and waiting for a call. Of course, back then, you couldn't leave the house if you were waiting for a call (no cell phones in the dark ages of my teen-hood). And you had to keep picking up the phone to check for the dial tone, hoping that the one second the phone was off the hook wasn't the one where the person called and you missed it.

Not usually. Because there's nobody I really want to talk to that badly. ;-)
