Someone Got Me Thinking

Nicole sent me an email

It went like this:

Nicole: “Are you there?” That was the entire email.

So, I’ve been contemplating that email during the day every once in a while; wondering how to answer it. I came up with several possibilities. Finally, today, this occurred to me as a possible answer. A boy walks up to a grandfather clock and he says,

Boy: “Grandfather Clock, do you know what time it is?”

Grandfather: He makes a funny face like he’s incredulous or even pained by the question. “What do you think?”

Boy: “I don’t know.”

Grandfather: “Why don’t you know?”

Boy: “Know what?”

Grandfather: “You should know. The answer is as plain as my face.”

Now, about Nicole asking me if I’m there.

Me: “Nicole, I have always been here. Even if I traveled across the country to California, I would still be here. I can’t be anywhere else. No matter where I am or where I go, I always abide here. I can never be there.”
