Men don't call each other

Men don't call each other. It's pretty much a fact. I have this patient who had been coming in about five months ago or so, and one day, he came in and ran into another patient who he had known since they were about six years old. Now these guys are in their late 50s, and they crowed on and on like older men do, full of bullshit and vinegar. Well, this week, the patient comes in, and asks if his friend has been in lately. He said they only live about a mile or so apart, and before they saw each other here hadn't talked for about seven years, because men don't call each other, but when they do see each other it's like no time has passed.
