I used to donate blood during local Red Cross blood drives, but then the Red Cross got all vampire-ish and started calling me up to eight times a day whenever they were in a fifty mile radius of my house. Setting up an appointment did no good. I asked them to stop calling, but the only thing that lessened the calls was deciding no longer to donate. I feel very bad about this, but it was getting ridiculous. They still call a least once a day though I never pick up.

...Oh God forgive me I write/think such stupid things....
Consolata - not to worry - this is the home of stupid comments. LOL!
...well then I am at home here !...it is so easy and fast to fall into one's self isn't it - your thread about the 'phone had me travelling all through the long-ago past of when we Wrote Letters and were not subject to instant communication. I too do not answer the telephone to the chagrin of others. Pope Francis...how good for him he is not on the internet ! btw: my land-line is used to find my cell-phone. I miss seeing people's handwriting, finding a letter in the mailbox from someone I love, reading and re-reading some missive...
What is the Pope's phone number?Et cum Spiri tu-tu-o.
I REALLY hate answering the phone. I will if I happen to see it's my mother otherwise I don't. I wait to listen to a message. I want to be prepared for whatever it is that's coming from the other end.
