i call my dad every evening after work. it's just become a habit and since he expects it, and each call is really just 20-60 seconds of "Hey, so, all is well? yeah. me too. ok. bye!" it isn't a bother.
so... i got home and called and there was no answer so i left a message. and then i called a few hours later and... left a message. and suddenly it was past 10 p.m. and he still hadn't called so i even tried his cellphone and got nothing. frrr!
......and just as i finished typing the frr above, the phone called and it was dad and he was fine. okay. haha. ignore me. just being paranoid. :)
