|Reading Elmo together at Sam’s Club|
Somehow Benjamin has hi-jacked the home phone’s answering machine. The worst part is, I don’t have a clue how to change it back. Granted, I haven’t spent that long trying… I just keep forgetting about it. Usually someone is at home.
The funny part is that it sounds as if he is just picking up the phone and answering it. People on the other end don’t realize that they have reached the machine.
At first all you hear is heavy breathing… creepy.
Then you start to hear some toddler sounds and words. It sounds like Benjamin picked up the phone and you are having a conversation with him.
It goes on for some time.
Then people start to wonder… I know that they’re not home… did Rachel leave her not-yet-two-year-old home alone?
…and if they are home, why does Benjamin keep answering the phone every time I call. Why doesn’t anyone notice?
In all honesty, I don’t know when he recorded the message. I was probably sitting right here next to him, thinking he was just pretending to talk on the phone. How was I to know that he had pushed a magical combination of buttons. Now if I can only figure them out myself.
On the plus side, I’ve started letting it go to voicemail when solicitors call, haha.
