The best thing about our new phone is.....
....I'll always know where it is!
Oh yeah, baby. Vintage 1970's. She's a beauty. Got her on Craig's List.
Anyone who knows us, knows we never answer our phone.
Not because we're screening calls (OK, sometimes I do), but usually because our cordless phones are never put back.
I find them in the back yard, the toy closet, the garage, under couch cushions, in our neighbor's front yard.......
Then they're usually dead from being off the charger so much.
So I have 3 rings to find a phone, yelling at the kids while I do so. "Why is it so hard to put the phone back?!!! Why??!!!"
Now we have no excuses for not answering our phone.
Answering the phone is quite exciting these days. The kids fight for it. And they think the rotary dial is so cool.
The first time it rang was so funny! We were all startled. That classic ring took us by surprise. One of the kids said, "It's like we're in an old movie." I laughed so hard.
Then Brian came home from a long day at work & sat down on the couch. Turned on ESPN. The phone rang. "It's for you, Dad...........but you'll have to come get it............the new phone you know.
