"You hang up first...no, you hang up first."  

You’d count the days down to the weekend because you’d finally get to see one another.  When the time came, you made sure you looked and smelled delicious because the weekend was sure to include a considerable amount of sexy time (as my colleague & friend Dr. Uchenna Ossai, aka YouSeeLogic, likes to call it .
