    Don't Call My House!

    My house phone is mostly for decoration purposes only.  I'm (we're) never home so it would be pointless to try to reach me on my house phone.  Everyone knows to call on my cellphone if you really want to talk to me.   So every time the house phone rings, I ignore it.  I...

    Ha!

    I am one of those people who if their head wasn't screwed on, they would lose it. I rarely EVER have my phone on me. And even then, they better hope I'm in the mood to talk or I'm not answering! And if they call back a certain amount of times, I will answer to see what they want...

    Back then there was only one person I loved talking to on phone; and it was my mother. We would talk for hours and hours without realizing the duration of time. :-)
