Silly the-Figment. Was not quite coherent enough to give him a time to call back, as I thought he was calling at 1pm, because I could see a 1 on my visible clock.
He called back closer to 1pm, the actual 1pm, which was "a few hours later", and I was coherent enough to answer the phone. Still not coherent enough to hold a conversation.
I suppose I need to give him an update on my actual schedule, because we are badly out of touch. Especially because bondmates get to get away with calling at hours that are bad for me, but ordinary friends are informed of the faux pas.
