Can't Talk

After a close friend moved away, we began to communicate by computer. We met each week in her favorite chat room and would type for hours.

One night, I had a high fever and swollen larynx and felt too sick to chat, so I dashed off a brief note canceling our cyber-plans, then fell exhausted into bed.

My friend seemed upset when I phoned her a few days later.  "If you don't want to go on the  'Net with me," she said, "just say so."

Perplexed, I retrieved the last e-mail I'd sent her.  It read, "I won't be able to talk to you on the computer tonight.  I have laryngitis."
