Exclusively voicemail

Over the last few days, I’ve been conducting my friendship with my, er, friend Rob by the medium of voicemail. I have to say, it’s been quite refreshing.

For whatever reason, I’ve been otherwise engaged whenever he’s called. And I can only imagine that the same must be true for him on the times when I have returned said calls.

I have enjoyed listening to his vocal ramblings, and apparently one of my such replies ranks as the third funniest voicemail of all time. Not sure whether that’s across all voicemails to all phones, or just to Rob. Also, when his voicemail kicks in, I enjoy listening to his very random, unprofessional (he’s a student; why would he need to be professional?) invite for me to leave a message ("or something").

The dialogue-embargo was broken yesterday evening, when Rob decided that he was able to talk to me directly. It fell way short of the earlier voicemail shenanigans. Way short.

    Tehcnically I’m on a sabbatical actually.

    And that voicemail has been there irrespective of my working status. I have never been professional, and resent the implication that this coincides in any way with whether I am turning up to some rancid office offering half baked ideas to defeated, sullen clients, or not.
