I would never even venture to call someone who doesn't want it. I let people know I'm willing and it is up to them to email me their phone numbers or not. One sent it a month ago, but told me to wait awhile because she was unhappy right then, so I have. When I hear from her again giving me the go ahead, I will. I desperately hate to hear how that is how you feel about yourself. Actually, most people hate their voices. I realize you may have more reason than most, but you are definitely not standing out there all alone with that one. I hate my accent. When I was in Pennsylvania, I didn't have one, but the minute I got home wham. Then I wrote the book and it all came back. Now, I accept it and sometimes exaggerate it because people enjoy it and find it funny. There are things in life you can't change so you just get on its back and ride it. You'd rather chat here? Good enough. Consider it a done deal that it is what we will do. And I am not beautiful. Silly...that was then, this is now.
I love speaking with them. I don't want to stay in their homes and I don't know where you got that I was bootiful! Far from it! I like the voices and the highs and lows and listening to them laugh! It creates an aura of a closer friendship...that's all. I don't want to know anything they don't want me to know and won't ask any questions in areas they don't want to talk about. There are those that were reluctant, but most got over it. The others I haven't bothered again, because I don't want to be a bother. Most I have spoken to numerous times now and we call each other. It's not one way. That's just the first call. If it's uncomfortable, I just say how much I enjoyed talking to them and get off. I spent over 30 years on the phone, listening to attitudes and inflections and getting to know people I never got to meet. There are p's and q's to good manners on the phone like anywhere else. I wasn't trying to talk you into anything. I was just recounting some of my experiences that went past ICHC.
