It’s just short of 9:00 last night, and my sweetie (my fiancee—important point…) answers the phone:
“Hello? (pause) Yes, he is, may I ask who’s calling? (pause) Not yet, but we’re working on it. (pause) No, definitely not. (pause) You, too. Bye.” At which point she hangs up and starts laughing as I’m walking down the stairs.
Here was the whole conversation, more or less:
“Hello? (Hi, is Vincent there?) Yes, he is, may I ask who’s calling? (This is Gwen, from Singles Connection [or something like that]. Is this his wife?) Not yet, but we’re working on it. (Oh, so I guess this means he’s not single?) No, definitely not. (OK, thanks. Have a nice night.) You, too. Bye.”
Man, I can’t believe she wouldn’t let me talk to Gwen. :-)
