The trilling beep of tea.

Once or twice a week, my cell phone emits a trilling beep. It is perhaps the one beeping sound I hear that doesn't annoy or confuse me, as it is the ringtone I assigned to the numbers that calls get routed through from the Middle East. (My best friend is there as a contractor.)

We might catch each other in Colorado in June. It would be nice to hear his voice without the tired rasp of his late night during my midday.
