I am bad at returning phone calls. There’s just not enough time in the day to speak to all the people who call me. I know that sounds kind of conceited, and I don’t mean it that way. It’s just that I’m a very busy person. I work, try to get enough sleep, cook, clean, sit in traffic, and because I’m so frequently occupied, I just can’t seem to ever find the time to return calls. I check my voice-mail once a week, if that. I just let the voice-mails pile up and then eventually I’ll sift through them and make a few return calls. But I’m never able to catch up. Really, my life is no busier than the people who call me, I’m sure; I’m just not adept at returning calls.
