Trying to record a greeting on our new answering machine

Yes, we still using an answering maching. Much easier to screen calls that way. And yes, that's why we're never home when you call...

ME (bending over the telephone table in our dark little tiny little hallway)
You've reached 555-1234 please leave a message [beep]
[to Kristin] Did that sound blurry to you?

KRISTIN (responding to me from inside the bathroom, the door of which is not 3 feet away from the telephone table)
Yeah, you should do it again.

You've reached 555-1234... oh shit [beep]
You've reached... fuck! [beep]

[raucous laughter from within the bathroom]


I am trying really hard not to flush the toilet right now.

That would be really funny.

Well, I'm not going to do it.

You've reached 555[giggle turning into fully belly laugh] [snort] [beep]

You've ummm [squeaky snorty laugh][sound of toilet flushing in background] [beep]

10 or so minutes later

You've reached 555-1234, please leave a message [beep]

You sound like you're drunk.

You've reached 555-1234 please leave a message [beep]

Well, now you sound depressed.

You've reached 555-1234. If you don't leave a message, we won't call you back [beep]

Don't you want people to leave us messages? Because there you just sound pissy.

Well, isn't that true?

Yeah, but we don't necessarily want everyone who calls us to know that we're pissy.

Who would be calling us that doesn't know we're pissy?


You've reached 555-1234. Please leave a message. [beep]

You should have just stopped with the first one.
