Not much has changed in the last thirty-five minutes since we last saw each other.

Stupid man.

Can I expect any more substantial input from you or should I start ignoring your messages?


Sender: +1310448791
Received: 21:01:59

My input at dinner was very substantial, you ungrateful man. It'll be much to the regret of both of us that it seems to have fallen on deaf ears.

Leave. Go to him. I’m serious.


Sender: S
Received: 21:05:06
21-12-2013
I just spoke to him. He doesn’t want to see me anymore.


Sender: S
Received: 21:05:58
21-12-2013
It wasn’t what one would call a friendly chat.


Sender: (no name) +1310448791
Received: 21:06:23
21-12-2013
Did he call?


Sender: S
Received: 21:06:31
21-12-2013
Yes.


Sender: (no name) +1310448791
Received: 21:06:45
21-12-2013
Why?


Sender: S
Received: 21:07:31
21-12-2013
It doesn’t matter.


Sender: (no name) +1310448791
Received: 21:08:50
21-12-2013
He called because he was angry John was going to Texas and you were staying in New York. Yes or no would do.


Sender: S
Received: 21:09:39
21-12-2013
Yes.

I wonder what the great mind of Sherlock Holmes can deduce from that.


Sender: (no name) +1310448791
Received: 21:14:21
21-12-2013
God, I almost prefer the old you. He was less obtuse.


Sender: (no name) +1310448791
Received: 21:15:29
21-12-2013
Do you want to see him?


Sender: S
Received: 21:16:41
21-12-2013
Yes.


Sender: (no name) +1310448791
Received: 21:17:01
21-12-2013
Go to him.


Sender: S
Received: 21:19:51
21-12-2013
No. Do I need to repeat myself? Victor and I have a lot in common. I only have to look at my interactions with both of them today to see the logical course of action.

Received: 21:20:29

Logic has nothing to do with it.

Predictable response. Boring.

If you won't do what you want to do, at least don't do anything you don't want to do. Good luck. You have my number.
