pparently, anyway. You know the stereotype: teenage girl on the phone…at all times.
Phone conversations make for bad action (via Bamboo Killers) and sloppy story telling. And yet I keep trying to put Julia on the phone.
Need words of wisdom from her friend but don’t want to be bothered by actually having to deal said friend? Stick ’em on a phone call. Ug.
I’ve run into this before and remedied it by ripping the phone away from the character mid-conversation. Not exactly edge of your seat gripping, but better.
I’m not sure why this is my crutch for parsing out information. Perhaps I wasn’t on the phone enough as a teenager.
