So my family and I don't talk to often. Not due to any type of trauma (alright maybe a little) but mostly because we never really have. It is just how we are. When I do talk to my brother (maybe twice a year if I'm lucky) it feels natural and we just chat like nothing. With my dad, it is a little awkward. I talk to him or see him about 3-4 times a year. The last year, it was has been even less. This year he didn't even call for my birthday. That is rare. Turns out he was travelling. When he returned he didn't even return my call. I had to reach out like 3 times. Finally he let me know that he was back and that he had hurt his thumb and so couldn't use the phone. hmmm.... okay? well, that persisted. Recently I went to see him for his bday and stuff. He still claimed he hasn't been able to reach out due to the thumb. BUT, he wanted us to go to the driving range to kill some time. He had just finished explaining all the issues he was having with his thumb and hand... and then was like "but it felt better the other day while I was hitting some balls. Lets go to the driving range... wtf?
