talking my ear off

I spent something like 5 hours on the phone yesterday. Which alone is a personal record. But I think I only talked to 3 people. I talked to my parents for about 20 minutes. I talked to Bill & Michelle for a bit more than an hour. And then I talked to Jim, my friend in DC, for upwards of three and a half hours, in two separate phone calls. I have never, in my life talked more than an hour and a half on the phone in one day to one person, and Jim and I talked for an hour the first time, and over 2 hours the second time. We would've talked more the first, but it we got interrupted by Bill & Mischa calling about my coming up to Alaska.



Personally, I'm in shock that I can carry on a single conversation for that long without it ever going to dead silence. Not only that, we both had people com in and out on the sidelines. I passed on hanging out at the Albertson's because I wanted to stay on the phone with Jim, and he went to Starbucks and then drove home, all the while on the phone with me. There was other stuff in the periphery that only temporarily distracted us from talking to each other. Which I find highly amusing. And amazing...



Question of the Day: What is your personal record for longest single phone call?
