But it's never something serious
It's gotten to the point, as I've said before, where I no longer worry for boyfriend's safety if he doesn't call after he says he will. Everytime I get frustrated when he doesn't follow through on a phone call or email, I think "What if something happened to him? He could be dead or in the hospital right now. You would feel like such a bitch if something happened to him." But that thought is immediately swept away by the plethora of examples of how safe and healthy boyfriend has always been when he didn't follow through.
So when boyfriend said "Can I call you right back?" and then didn't call for over thirty minutes, I was reminded of the last time this happened ("Oops, I forgot. Sorry"). I decided not to call him, and was glad that I actually wasn't angry at him. If he didn't call me back, it didn't matter. I have a life too.
So I was surprised when he called me nearly an hour later and told me that he had lost control of his car and slid down a hill in the snow, and had to get help in order to get home.
