We wait by the phone.
We pick up the cell phone to make sure the volume is turned up or to be sure we did not miss a text message.
We shave our legs. You know, just in case.
We swear this time, it's going to be different.
We do ridiculous things like watch movies we've seen a hundred times and play Spider Solitaire to distract ourselves.
"I will not text him, I will not call him, I will not e-mail him...."
We get our hearts broken. We feel sad.
We try again.
