New York, 2016
We’re having a family gathering last Saturday, and I called up a cousin whom I couldn’t reach for the dinner. A woman picked it up after mere two rings.
We spoke once, at length, perhaps ten years ago, I did suggest to meet but he was noncommittal. I didn’t press. Recently when we decided to have a family gathering, I called him a couple of times. Their answering machine’s message is generic, I don’t know if its still theirs so I didn’t leave a message.
