Upon Hanging Up the Phone

My father: "...Bye-bye. Thanks for calling. It's nice to hear your voice."

Me: "Bye, Dad. I love you."

After hanging up the phone, I say aloud: "It's nicer to hear yours!!"

Oh I would love to hear the backstory on this Pearl...Perhaps you have written it already. But if you havent, these few sentences speak volumes...! And I can understand it, my dear. I truly can.

Old Lady: I adore my father. Pure and simply ADORE HIM! He's been seriously sick so many times over his lifetime and mine. He spent three months in hospital between December and March. We didn't know if he'd go home again. He did. Weaker than before and suddenly older than before...but still adored by everyone around him.
That, in a nutshell, is the backstory.
