$3.99 A Minute

I was talking to a friend of mine tonight who hasn't had a date in quite some time. So much time, that I can't even bring myself to tell you. No, there is nothing wrong with him. No, he's not ugly. No, he's not a loser. Yes, he is gay.

But really...that doesn't have anything to do with it either. He is just selective, works a lot and finds other things to do with his time rather than complicating things with a relationship.

Anyway, I called him tonight and the phone was busy for HOURS. When I finally did get through, I said "WHO the hell have you been talking to? Anyone who talks on the phone that long is usually talking to a boyfriend, and I know you don't have one."

He said, "I do too have a boyfriend. That's who I was talking to."

I said, "Oh really? At $3.99 a minute?"

He laughed his famous infectious laugh, which always makes me smile, and we continued our conversation.

After I got off the phone with him, I thought...

NO man is worth $3.99 a minute.
