Phone rings. Telephone-answering machine. Female voice.
Your call cannot be taken at the moment. Please leave your name and number after the tone. BEEEP … Hello Vic … it’s aunt Elma again speaking to your damn answering machine. I swear you do it deliberately so you don’t speak to me directly. It’s always on when you’re at work, or out shopping or whatever. Why don’t you give me your cell phone number so I can phone you at work? Anyway … I am phoning to thank you for writing to your uncle Jim about him moving into the garage for this past week. You did write to him … did you?
