I was pleased to read in a personal essay:

"I have a constant low-grade fear of the telephone. I often call people with the intention of getting their answering machines." - Meghan Daum

I mean, I need my phone (who doesn't?) I use it to make errand calls all the time. It's the primary way I talk to my parents. It keeps me from worrying about j. too much. I still wish I could communicate solely through writing/in person. My ideal phone lets me go online to send people email, to chat with them via text. The phone part is just an unfortunate necessity.
I even feel shy talking to j. on the phone.

Most phone calls require I psych myself up and then engage in an act of bravery.
I put them off as long as I can. Phone interview? Nightmare.
