    @DewaynePerkins @Blacktress V similar approach, or I’ll say “well I’m gonna make dinner” regardless of time of day


    @Blacktress “Well I’ve run out of things to say. Talk later?”


    @Blacktress I always say “My son has climbed the window/table I gotta go - call you back” which I don’t.


    @Blacktress @wyntermitchell “I don’t want to do this anymore but I love you”


    @Blacktress "Girl let me go feed these kids, I will talk to you later"...... All the "kids" are 20+


    @Blacktress “Just pulled dinner out of the oven”


    @Blacktress “I can’t do this anymore.”


    @Blacktress “Ok well, I’m gonna let you go” like you are freeing a captive dove.

    @Blacktress "Welp! I'm gonna lay down" has worked for me because it's always true
