What is your malfunction?

So I'm taking a nap today (lately, when The Baby sleeps, I sleep) and the phone rings. I hear the husbeast answer it, tell them they have a wrong number, and hang up. I'm about half awake, but I continue just laying there.

A while later, the phone rings again. The husbeast gets it (we have caller ID), snarles "It's still a wrong number" into the phone, and hangs up. (He gets cranky about people disturbing his womenfolk.) I wake up and eventually roll out of bed and start pulling myself together.

While I'm dressing, I hear the phone ring, AGAIN. The husbeast snatches it up and says "What is your malfunction?" into the phone. There's a pause. Then he nearly shouts "I am not calling you, YOU ARE CALLING ME." and hangs up. He turns to see me standing there snickering and says "I'd cuss them out, but it's a little old lady." I snickered some more.

He's taken off to run some errands (The Baby is still asleep). I'm wondering just what I should do if the wrong number calls back again. I'm thinking, order a pizza.

Heh, my mother's favourite saying is "When they sleep, you sleep!" when referring to babies... I think it had something to do with her being a mother of twins while working full time

hee hee hee... long ago, when I was out of a job and Mate was in school, we used to answer the phone "Taco Bell" to screen for bill collectors! I bet you could manage that pizza!

And I did that "when the babies sleep I sleep" thing today--I woke up feeling SOOOOO much more ready to be the mommy...
