Iâ€™m hanging up nowBy Wade Kwon
â€œNothing. What about you?
â€œCanâ€™t, gotta stay late tonight. Yes, I miss you, too.
â€œNo, donâ€™t wait. Go ahead and eat. Iâ€™ll grab something out of the machine.
â€œI know but Iâ€™m starving.
â€œDonâ€™t worry so much. You sound like my mom.
â€œOK, OK. Youâ€™re nothing like my mom. Didnâ€™t mean to go there â€¦
â€œReally, it was an accident. My momâ€™s way sexier than you.
â€œIâ€™m just teasing you. I only tease the ones I like. And you.
â€œYes, indeedy, moving on.
â€œNo, I thought you paid it.
â€œIâ€™ll make a deposit at the bank tomorrow, and then mail the bill.
â€œIt wonâ€™t be late. Iâ€™ll make sure to do it at lunch.
â€œI swear I wonâ€™t forget.
â€œWhen? Do I have to wear suit and tie?
â€œWill Aunt Whatsherface be there?
â€œShe totally hates me. For no reason.
â€œOh yeah, that. But I thought it was a trash can.
â€œAnyone wouldâ€™ve thought it was a trash can.
â€œIâ€™ll be nice to her. Even if it kills me.
â€œIt might. It might kill me. Or mortally wound me. Sheâ€™s a tough bitch.
â€œYeah, but I fight dirty.
â€œSo much pressure these gatherings. Are you sure I canâ€™t be down with the mumps?
â€œYou and your anatomical correctness. I will not stand for it.
â€œDunno. Probably by 7:30. Eight at the latest.
â€œPromise. And Iâ€™ll bring home a treat.
â€œNo, itâ€™s a surprise.
â€œA surrrrr-priiiiiiise. As in, not to be disclosed ahead of time.
â€œNo, no hints. One hint leads to another. Be patient, my sweet.
â€œI swear youâ€™ll like it. Now I gotta go.
â€œNo, itâ€™s not a pony. Thatâ€™s the only hint youâ€™re getting.
â€œIâ€™m hanging up now.
â€œLove you, too.â€
