I just had the awesomest phone call I think I’ve ever got – other than the telemarketer calls, anyway.
I picked up the phone and said, “Hello?”
“Hi is your husband there?”
“Oh, I’m sorry! Now I can tell! Sorry about that, ha, ha!”
“That’s okay, ha, ha!”
“Anyway, is your dad there?”
“Uh, sure. Can I ask who’s calling.” (in case it’s a telemarketer)
“Yeah, this is Jane Doe (name substituted, obviously)”
“Sure, one second.”
Held the phone away to laugh as quietly as I could. Then cough a couple times to clear my throat, and then in my best manly bass voice, “Hello?”
“Hi! This is Jane Doe, I just wanted to thank you for…”
And from there on out, it was a normal call – other than my manly bassness. But that call just made my day! Best thing that’s happened to me in a long time! Hahahaha!
