Dead Friend(ship), R.I.P.
Did you have ever have a good friendship that died? I did. I had a friend who connects with friends by disconnecting from them. After tiring of being repeatedly disconnected, I tried to force through a better connection and called him (to re)collect. But my friend refused to accept the charges and so the operator hung up on me. After awhile, because I missed my friend, I tried to force a connection again. But this time, my friend got really angry at me and cut the line. I got a "this number is no longer in service" recording when I dialed his number. I think my friend misheard me and mistakenly thought I was making an obscene phone call. Anyway, the phone friendship went dead. Perhaps it was a phoney friendship all along. Still, I miss it. It was weird to delete his number from my cell phone.
