Exhaustive Speech

I have a friend, let's call him C. He doesn't call me often, but when he does, I frown a little. Not because I hate C, but because I have to do all the talking. Now, I'm much more of a listener than a talker, so I kinda dread C's calls. Whenever I see his name flash in my phone, I have to start thinking of conversation topics to entertain him. The only reason I go through all that trouble is because C's an old friend, and I can hardly push old friends away, can I?

I have another friend, W, who's the exact opposite. I also frown a little when he calls me, because I know I won't be able to get a word in. He'll just yak yak yak and all I can do is listen. Whenever I try to reply, he'll start shooting off a new string of words. Both W and C drive me up the wall, but they are much more demure in person.

Gosh, I know I sound like such a fussy friend! I'm kinda like Goldilocks, except much older and with more body hair.

Just for the record, I'm not the "William" in the post. :).

Just get W to call C. Problem solved.

What makes you think you have more hair than Goldilocks? Haha.

Haha, I'll leave you two to wonder who is who...

But for the record, I do have more friends than the number of people who regularly comment here.

What to do? I don't want my funeral to just be a family affair.
