Valentine's Day

The voice on the other end had that buzz recorded messages invariably acquired, even with smartphones and iPhones and 4G networks humming mankind's words along like the messengers of the gods.

Time really flies. Hard to believe I'm getting married in 30 days!" The way she said it he could see the number - three-oh, not thirty. "It's fun...and a little overwhelming. But mostly fun. Just wanted to drop a line."

The message ended there. No goodbye, no coda, no thanks, but no thanks; she was just "dropping a line".
