Anything Other Than Mumbles and Shrugs

Long time no see.  Mayler has a negative reaction to a long time friend who says hello after many years of not having any communication.

Mayler:  Did you just hurt yourself to say hello?  Hold on, let me check if you’re bleeding.  Freaking guy.

What a half-ass-hearted attempt.  I mean, really.  We haven’t spoken in how many years?  Five?  Ten?  I don’t even remember anymore.  But you reach out to me and it’s like why even bother.

It’s not that I don’t want to hear from you.  I’m happy to hear from you but you did it in such a way…no real effort.

You get what you give.  Am I right?

If you really wanted to say hi and see how I’m doing, make me feel like you mean it.  I’m not saying you need to blow me kisses and massage my ass but at least make a valiant effort like someone who has real intent.  You know, give me the feeling that you really want to connect with me on some human level and not like someone twisted your arm to speak.

Ask me how I am and what I’ve been up to, anything other than mumbles and shrugs.

Wow…you haven’t changed one bit.
