One of my housemates here in Los Angeles is engaged to a girl who is currently finishing up at BYU in Utah. (They're getting married in two weeks). During the three months he's lived here, he has been on the phone with his fiancee an average of two hours every weeknight and four or more hours on weekends. Is this excessive, or should people planning to spend the rest of their lives together talk this much? I suppose I'm just amazed that they can find anything about which to speak after the tenth hour of conversation in a given week--and I'm speaking as a guy who, with apologies to a certain Leslie C., can talk the balls off a rhinoceros.
