Pick Up the Phone I Know You’re Home

October 29, 2011

Pick it up, pick it up, pick it up.  Does anyone else remember this absolutely crazy commercial.  I think it was advertising answering machines.  Anyway since turning 26 I’ve decided I absolutely must have some goals this year because after having 25 goals last year I couldn’t have a goalless year.  I may put together some sort of list, it would be short and honestly at the moment I can’t think what these things are, but I will tell you my number one goal….

To answer the phone.  If you’ve ever called me you know that I don’t answer the phone, like ever.  If I’m in the middle of a T.V. show I don’t answer.  If I’m not in the mood to talk I don’t answer.  If I figure I’ll see you in the next week anyway I don’t answer.  Basically I would have to be in the exact right mood to answer the phone.  It doesn’t matter who you are, I even purposely didn’t answer on several occasions when the hubs called me, I know terrible, right?  For this reason some people have vowed to never call me again, seriously.  I have such this reputation in my family that if people really need to get a hold of me they don’t even call me, they call Andrew and he hands me his phone.  So this year I am picking up the phone, it’s amazing how many people I’ve reconnected with because I’ve answered every time I have been able to.  Obviously there are circumstances where I just can’t pick up, but when I can I do.  So if you have felt rejected by me, I apologize, and if you want to talk, I’ll answer, I promise!

    I sing that commercial to my kids and wife who think I’m nuts. I’ve searched the entire Internet and can’t find a sound clip!

      Mike, I have searched high and low and unfortunately have come up empty handed. I’m trying to convince my brother to record it with me and post it to you tube!
