Stuff sent by email...

A couple of notable things that came through my inbox today. This first one is remarkable in its overkill. The story is about the teenage girl who texted 14,528 MESSAGES IN A MONTH! Four hundred eighty-four messages a day (that's one text message every two minutes while awake). And a 440 page statement from AT&T. Total due?? $2,905.60 (unless you have unlimited texting, which her father did, which is why this isn't a murder story). Read the story for other incredible "averages" regarding texting. It's no wonder that the US is ranked so low among other country's productivity...

Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird.
We had made plans to meet at a bar to have a drink.
I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I
thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit
late, but he made no comment on it.

Conversation wasn't flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn't say much.
I asked him what was wrong; he said,
"Nothing." I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset.
He said he wasn't upset, that it had nothing to do
with me, and not to worry about it.

On the way home, I told him that I loved him.
He smiled slightly, and kept driving.
I can't explain his behavior. I don't know
why he didn't say, "I love you, too."

When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him
completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore.
He just sat there quietly, and watched TV.
He continued to seem distant and absent.

Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go
to bed. About 15 minutes later, he came to bed. To my
surprise, he responded to my caress, and we made love.
But I still felt that he was distracted, and
his thoughts were somewhere else.

He fell asleep - I cried. I don't know what to
do. I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with
someone else. My life is a disaster.
Missed a big deer today, but at least I got laid.
