I gotta go

The office in which I work is oh so very quiet. If you take a phone call at your desk, all will hear what you are saying. Most people go to a conference room when they are on the phone for personal or business calls. I find it a little strange, but at the same time is all makes sense.

Eric and I end every call with an exchange of I Love You's and I find this uncomfortable when I am too lazy to get up and I call him from my desk, so we came up with a code phrase to end our little chat ....

Me: Hi Love! Can you go to the grocery store for me today to pick up some stuff for dinner?

Him: Sure thing, what do you want me to get?

Me: I'll send you an email with a list. (We're so high-tech)

Him: Ok, sounds good.

Me: Thanks! I gotta go.

Him: I really gotta go too!

Me: I really really gotta go! I'll talk to you later! Bye.

Him: Bye.
Doesn't that make you want to just GAG?

You know if Z-D and I had that conversation, we'd be much more literal and the "gotta go" would mean need-bathroom-now!

Perhaps the romance is out of our relationship-- or our bladders are weaker. Maybe both.

No, I'm not gagging. Given how quiet your workplace is, I wouldn't want to get too personal on the phone either.
