Are you productive when you talk on the phone? There are days when I am a mean-cleaning-talking machine. And there are other days (a few too many) when I don’t have anything to show after clicking end on my telephone — meaningful conversations aside.
One of my closest friends lives a couple hours away. But we make up for it in the number of times we talk on the phone each day and the lengths at which we talk on the phone. She tends to sit, comfy on the couch while we talk. I tend to pace around my house. (The reason I recognize this is that I have noticed when my kids are on the phone or pretend to be, they walk circles around the house. Hmmm.)
