Following on

On Monday the Lawyer is very apologetic and I am childish. He texts to say "I assume you're not talking to me."

Lee tells me that in order not to seem Mental I should try and sort this out. At least end it nicely. He says at the very least with a text.

Eventually I text back, "Correct! Something's wrong, and I'm too tired to want to sort it out."

He texts (boring isn't it?): "Okay then. I'll delete your number."

I reply: "Fair enough. Things clearly weren't working, but if it's something I've done wrong, I'm sorry. Thank you."

I decide at this point that breaking up by text is brilliant. You can do it while smoking and watching Battlestar.

It's then that the Lawyer calls. He's really sorry, it's all a misunderstanding, and he misses the sound of my voice.

I pause Battlestar. And we talk. "Oh well," I think, "The final five can wait."

The final five should wait for no-one!

And I don't think you're being childish at all. He started it.

Well he needed to apologise lets face it - and being as disorganised as he was (I'm being generous here) is pretty childish in it's own right.

However, do whatever is fun. And don't do too much agonising unless that's fun too.

And I hate to say this but do bear in mind that most lawyers have to be surgically removed from their mobile phones.

Maybe you should talk to him in lawyer-speak: determine who's guilty (Him, obviously!); give judgement; hand out some appropriate punishment and, once he's paid his debt to society (You, obviously); grant him parole - subject to good behaviour...

Oh, yes, and remember the magic word with all lawyers in "briefs"...

Brian Sibley said...

I mean "is briefs"... but "in briefs" will do...

Let me get this straight... You paused Battlestar?

Brian Sibley said...

What's straight got to do with it?

Yeah. I paused Battlestar :) In the middle of a Big Space Bang moment. I had to sit there, nodding and talking about emotions while staring at a still picture of Madame President about to do something fabulous.

Hey at least you managed to get a lawyer to call you back.... that must be a first :)
