I was talking to a good friend on the phone the other day. It went something like this:
Me: "How are you?"
Her: "Great! How are you?" At this time I could hear someone pounding on her front door.
Me: "Is this a bad time? Do you need to get the door?"
Her: "No, It's okay. I am just going to ignore it." Odd...but I didn't question. The pounding on the door didn't stop however. We continued our conversation when I heard her 4-year-old yell distinctly, "MOM! MOM! Are you done pooping yet? I really need you!"
Me: "Uhh....do you need to go? UHHH....I mean, do you need to help your son?" And then, I couldn't help myself, I started laughing--loud and obnoxiously.
Her: "Well, I guess there is no graceful way to get out of this one. I have been caught. Now you know what I do while talking to you on the phone." Honestly, too much info.
Me: "How were you going to explain the flush?"
Her: "Blame it on one of my kids. That is what I always do....." Good tip for the future!
I think she would benefit with a setup like this! Then she could really multi-task! You know who you are and I love you!
Share if you have had a similar situation..... :D
