I try Ned again; maybe he didn’t get my first message for some reason. His phone goes to voicemail almost immediately. I tell him I’m home and really want to talk to him tonight and then hang up. I turn the TV on and flip through channels. Nothing is on. I settle on the end of a random cop show on ABC since the news will start in fifteen minutes. I don’t get what’s going on with the cop show. Finally the news starts, and ends, and still no call from Ned. I’m tired and it’s getting late. I shower (with the phone in the bathroom in case it rings) and get ready for bed. The phone never rings. I leave it next to my bed and crawl under the covers.
I wake up the next morning, no happier than I was last night. In fact, I’m pissed now that I realize he never called.
