I called him, first. He had to leave to go shopping, but called me back on his cellphone while doing same.
I called his home number and got his dad; he wasn't around.
I called him and left a message on the voicemail asking him to please call back as I had a question. He called back; I asked my question and he answered it. We made it brief because he was expecting another call.
I called him and left a message on the voicemail asking him to please call me back (because I was absolutely wacked-out nuts). He called back and everything was cleared up, complete with him pointing out my self-esteem and its misbehavior.
When I pointed this out to him, he couldn't count and thought it was only two, so I had to enumerate each.
Did I mention I picked a good best friend? If only did not keep falling apart...
