I see you, blinking light on the phone signalling a message has been left. I see you, and I am ignoring you.
The phone rings off the hook lately, but thanks to caller ID, I know that most the time it is telemarketers, a radio survey that has a serious jones for my husband, my daughter's friends because they can't reach her on her cell, my Grandpa calling to ask my husband how the new job is, or the library.
The library leaves long messages telling me I've got holds waiting or books overdue. Since I am not ready to return my overdue book, I'm going to ignore the message.
By tomorrow morning, I'll be able to face you. I will have finished my book by then!
