I came across a tweet from someone with the word, Introvert, somewhere in their screen name. I thought that I had saved a screen capture, but of course, I failed. Truth is, however, I really blame it on a computer hiccup, for it was, indeed, hiccupping at that point. Regardless, the Tweet went something like this: In all sincerity, absolutely do not phone me if it is something that can be communicated by text.
This is pretty well the code that I live by, In fact, the whole family does although not all introverts. I, for example, will only phone if I need an immediate response, like if I am in the grocery store, am standing in front of the tomatoes, and am wondering if we might need some even though it isn't on the list. In that case I might call Sue for she could miss the faint buzzing of a text alert. Once I have the answer, we say a quick goodbye.
I also once called Danica after I dropped her off at night because I forgot to wait until I was sure that she was inside, which is something that I have done all of my life with my wife and daughters, and I wanted to make sure that she had gotten in safely. Of course, and also unfortunately, it still seems to be necessary to call the doctor in order to make an appointment although I would really like them to change that. And as I posted recently, Sue tried to call Heather about possibly cancelling our journey, for Sue, although not an introvert, but other than that almost emergency situation, she find phones intrusive.
I know that is not everyone's modus operandi, but it is the way we roll here in Anvilcloudia, where, of course, we do things the right way. If you do it any other way, you're wrong, wrong wrong, and almost pagans, as it were. 😊
Oh . . . I found it . . . but I am not going to rewrite the post.
