Why You’ll Never Catch Me At Home On The Phone

Our current voice mail message is a very generic computer generated voice that simply states, “Please leave a message.”

I keep thinking I’ll change it to something more specific and personal, but if I were going to be completely honest it would probably say, “Please leave a message. I’m home right now but I’m currently being sucked into a vortex of estrogen and dog hair. When the mood swings subside and I can actually find more than 2 minutes to talk on the phone at home without being interrupted by a human child or a canine child, say in about 15 years or so, I’ll call you back. Thanks. In the mean time, please feel free to send hard liquor, dog treats, and a lint brush. Oh, and the girls like fruit snacks. The last time I checked, I couldn’t convince them that doggy peanut butter treats were gourmet Barbie bonbons.”

    I have a love/hate thing with the phone. I love to catch up with friends when I have the time…the phone just never rings at midnight when I might be able to sit down and chat (if I could stay awake). And I hate to call people because I’m afraid I will be bugging them as much as my phone bugs me. “Hi – neurotic – party of one?”

    Mine would say something along the lines of “Hi, I may or may not be home right now. Chances are I’m searching for the phone because the 2 year old Monkey has absconded with it. Please keep calling so that I can track the ringing. K, thanksbai’

    🙂 LOL. Have fun Saturday
