I ghost while texting. One time, I texted my husband that I had fallen down the stairs and was with our friend and then didn't respond for hours. What had happened was I had slipped down the subway stairs and our friend was there and had helped me up, and I went and hung at her apartment. What he thought had happened was I slipped down our building stairway, split my head open, and was hallucinating our friend in the hallway as I bled out.

Bear assumes anytime i leave the house i’m basically dead until he hears from me and i happen to be the woooooorst at checking in. i try and most times he ends up calling me to allay his anxiety. mostly else our texting is him telling me i’m cute.

i can and do take a long time to reply to things. i sometimes like time to consider and chew before i speak. every now and again i take long blocks of space from talking to people. nobody is shocked or surprised at this point. i always find my way back and it never feels like any time has passed at all.

I am good at responding to texts and understand when someone goes quiet that something has probably come up. If we are in mid emergency style conversation, I'll call if the reply isn't there quick enough. It's a bit presumptuous to assume the person I'm texting with is sitting down calmly with a cup of tea, only the mobile phone in front of them and not a care in the world. I guess I've ghosted when a general comment is sent to me or the answer to a question has ended our conversation. But is that ghosting? Do we need to announce that the conversation is over?

I found Chemda's annoyance with Xerxes frustrating to listen to as you can hear the paranoia and mistrust bubbling up all because of a text message. To be clear, I'm not annoyed at Chemda - just at hearing how a problem can manifest out of nothing. Xerxes asked a question, she answered... isn't that the end of that part of the conversation?

The, "I need him to see say X, Y then Z " just seems petty to me. You've known how Xerxes is with text messages via the course of your entire friendship, isn't it a little unfair to expect him to not respond the way he always has?

my eye itched this morning. i needed Bear to say out loud it wasn’t worms or pink eye. sometimes you need your person to shout down the crazy so you can move on with your day.

Sometimes rules change after someoneís dick was in your mouth.

Also this is how weíve always supported each other. We tell each other what we need and see if itís necessary or possible to do.

Heís not annoyed but you are. Which is hilarious.

Totally get that, and I get those weird things too that just need said. But I don't really see how Xerxes should know that when Chemda answers a question he asked about a proposal that he has to say, "Cool. Super cool even!".

That's not a, "we've known each other for nearly 20 years and when I cut my finger and there's a small amount of blood and I make a big deal about it just let me make a big deal about it, let me show you the tissue with the blood and tell me, "poor shnookums"...

But I am assuming this has probably happened before between the two of them and if he is aware that he should respond in that situation, then that's on him.

Ha! Noted and I will keep that in mind about the rules :p

I wasn't annoyed, I was frutrated at hearing how a problem can develop between two people over texts. We've all experienced how texts are misconstrued and it was hearing another example of that play out that frustrated me. I still enjoyed the hell out of the show.

And as I said above, if it's been clear between the two of you how your text conversations are supposed to play out, that's his bad for not playing his part right.

Hannah Boone is so bad ass! I would love to hang out with her just to watch her pull this stuff off.

Does Xerxes have sleep apnea? I do when I drink more than one glass of wine at night, and it really messes with me. I just ask because sleeping lightly, and always being sleepy are common symptoms.

It can be pretty serious, so itís worth checking out if it seems likely he does have it.
