I just recently reconnected with an old teacher of mine after 40 years. I sent her a letter letting her know what a difference she had made in my life and that I would like to see her again. She is 80 years old; I am 61.
After finally finding her through a third party, she responded to my messages by voicemail, because I wasn't in. She said she was elated to receive my letter and that it was just like old times. Since then, we have been playing phone tag. I waited two weeks and left another message today. I must add that she had been sick with the flu.
Now, I am not good at all with the telephone and I sense that she is not either. What suggestions have you so that at least we can meet one time?
Thanks for your courtesy.
You want to see your former teacher and she wants to see you. You haven’t seen each other for forty years and she isn’t getting any younger.
I’m not sure what you mean about not being “good at all with the telephone” but if you want to make arrangements for a get-together, you are going to need to be more persistent about connecting by phone.
