Not Quite Dialed In

The can of refried beans that our son held against his ear shed a little light on who had and who hadn’t been playing with the home phone.

“If you’d like to make a call,” our son began, “please hang up and dial again.”

My husband and I exchanged crinkled brows.  “What the…?”

By which time our son informed the person on the other end of his bean can–a third time– that if he wanted to make a call, he’d have to hang up and try his call again.

It was our daughter who finally reported that her brother was in the other room still ‘making calls’.  Only the wording had changed– “if you’d like to make a call, please hang up your coat.”

Ahem…all right then.
