When our server went down, it took out our email too. A few days later, Lion got it up and running under another website. Since I’ve gone back to work, I dutifully sign into my email and wait for emails from Lion. There haven’t been any.
It’s true that the rules were suspended so he’s not obligated to send me an email before noon every day. It’s also true that he’s been in pain and/or under the influence of narcotics. I know there are times he has no idea what day it is. The thing is, I miss those emails. That might be the next rule that gets reinstated.
I’ve also tried texting Lion a few times while I’m at work or in the store. No answer. Again, he may be sleeping, drugged, or not near his phone. Part of me understands that. Part of me feels a little neglected.
I really don’t mind taking care of Lion. He hasn’t made any huge demands on me. But I am looking forward to things getting back to normal, especially in the we’re-not-together-it-would-be-nice-to-hear-from-you sense. The first email usually says we love each other. The rest tend to deal with how the day is going or what’s for dinner, but the underlying message is I’m thinking about you. It’s nice to know someone is thinking about you.
I’m actually surprised how much I miss Lion’s emails. And I’m not blaming him for not writing. We’re together more often than not lately. I love that. Maybe that’s why I miss the communication so much when we’re apart.
