Line One

Jim The Small Child Nephew is beginning to conduct coherent phone conversations, although not necessarily in the same call. Often he will bring items to the phone he has made in preschool so that I can see them, which means that he's fully inherited my critical thinking skills.

Should you wish to listen in:

CALL THE FIRST
Julie The Nephews Mama: Do you want to talk to Aunt Beth?

Jim The Small Child Nephew: No.

Julie: All right. So anyway--

Jim: I WANNA TALK!

Me: Hello?

Jim: Hi Beeeeth!

Me: Hello, Jim!

Jim: You're at your house?

Me: Yes.

Jim: You're in Ginger?

Me: That's right. I'm in Virginia.

Jim: I'm at my house! I--

(phone goes dead)

(This was his cue to turn to his mother and announce in utter amazement, "Beth gone!")

CALL THE SECOND
Me: Hello?

Jim: I WANNA TALK TO--

(phone goes dead)

CALL THE THIRD
Me: Hello?

Jim: What happened?

Me: You hung up on your godmother, and Jesus doesn't love you anymore.

(phone goes dead)

Had huge fight with boss.

The laugh I had with your post has refrained from acquiring an AK-47.

For now.

So thanks, I'm sure my boss will aprreciate it too. :-)

"The spirit is willing but the fine motor dexterity is weak."

So, again: Much like his aunt.
