When Vicky and I get off the phone, it's always the same thing. "Love you, talk to you later, bye!" Now, we've been saying this for a while so it speeds through our mouths like nothing.
In fact, it sounds like nothing.
It sounds like we're trying to politely get the other person off the phone.
"Love you, talk to you later, bye!"
And we miss it. We miss the meaning behind it all, that tells us that we're not alone and that we're in love and that it's become so commonplace that we no longer mind letting the other person go for a while.
I think back to when Vicky and I were first dating, and when it was difficult to get off the phone. We never knew if that would be the last time we spoke. It still could be... but we're so secure with each other, the thought never occurs to us.
So, I thought I'd drop this note for Vicky.
I love you. I'll talk to you later. Bye.
