It literally rang for less than three seconds before the sound ceased, someone answered and their voice was streaming through the phone and into my ear. They almost sounded frantic. There was a certain urgency in their voice. No doubt they had quickly picked up the call with a decent sense of rush.
“Hello!” Shea emphatically said into the phone.
“Uh, hey. What’s up?” I responded.
“Oh, well nothing much. Just went food shopping, so making some dinner,” she answered. “Well duh, you know I went grocery shopping, you helped me pick them up off of the ground”.
“Yeah, I did, didn’t I?” I replied.
“So, what do I owe the unexpected pleasure of this phone call?” she asked. She spoke as if she was trying to remain calm. Attempting to treat this conversation like any other we have had in the past. I was sure she didn’t want to go off on a tangent and risk me hanging up again. I couldn’t blame her; I did have a history of hanging up on females lately.
