The Invisible Man Got 2 Phone Calls
Thursday or Friday last week I received a phone call from my friend J. He wanted some information he thought I might be able to furnish. It turned out that I couldn’t. While talking about other matters suddenly J said he was getting a call on the other line he had to take, he would call me right back.
I waited some more.
The next day we had to go shopping and to the doctor. I was hesitant to go thinking J. might call while I was gone.
Wait! I will just have the calls forwarded to my cell phone, so if J calls I will get on the cell phone. No problem! It was even less of a problem because J didn’t call.
No did he call the next day or the next.
On Tuesday my friend P called. P and I talked a while and he said he was getting another call in, from M. He said he would call me right back.
Anna wanted to use the phone and I asked her to wait because P was to call me right back.
I waited and I waited.
Then I thought what if J and P call at the same time? I promised both them I would be waiting by the phone.
Maybe I better get a phone with two lines I thought.
Then, it was time to go to the Tuesday afternoon Good Old Boy Get Together.
J and P were both at the get together and they were not on the phone… but during the course of the next hour or two I think they both were on their cell phones from time to time…. maybe they didn’t see me (I’m invisible) and they both were trying to call me.
