An extraordinary phone call

Last night I did a wide variety of untoward things.  I refused to participate in somebody’s addiction by applying my “new moral standards” (aw, go ahead and snicker, I don’t blame you) and it actually worked.  My interlocutor quit the behaviour.  The phone call transitioned from something stupid into a demonstration of mutual trust and friendship.  So instead of feeling lousy and abused this morning, I feel like a human being with some pretty remarkable friends.
