A couple of weeks ago the phone rang. Brian answered and I listened to his side of the conversation to see if the call was for me.
"Who's calling? . . . Is she gonna want to talk to you?"
My interest was piqued. Who could it be?
"Does she even know you?"
Is it one of my AWANA girls and he's giving her a hard time?
"Wait a minute!" His voice hardened. "This isn't her new boyfriend, is it?"
My jaw dropped. "Who are you talking to?" I noted the slight edge of panic in my voice. Who in the world would he say something like that to?
He hung up and I demanded again, "Who was that?"
Brian just about split a gut. "Some guy wanted you to take a survey."
When I could stop laughing long enough I asked, "What did he say when you asked if he was my boyfriend?"
"He sounded a little scared. 'Oh, no, sir! It's nothing like that!' I doubt if he'll call here again."
Well, that's one way to deal with them.
