Lack of Excuses

And, I’m paraphrasing more than I think I normally do, but after not talking to Hammad for a few months it went something like this:

“At first I thought you might be still be in Europe, and that would be your excuse for not calling. Then I figured you probably never even went to Europe because you’re a bum. And then I considered that you might have gotten a job and you were out in California or something, and that might have been a valid excuse, but in this economy that seemed pretty unlikely. So I figured you were sitting around your parents’ house, slacking off, and you were just a dick with no excuse for not calling.”

And I said, “Yeah. Yeah, that’s about right.”
