I’m was getting ready for work this morning, and at 7:45 the phone rang.
As Husbandji had already left for the day, I didn’t answer it.
She wanted to talk to him, not me, so why bother answering it?
Five minutes later the phone rang again. It was her again.
I didn’t answer it.
This happened three more times over the course of twenty minutes.
I finally answered the phone and regretted it the minute that I did.
TigerYogiji: (Sigh.) No Tiamat, it’s TigerYogiji.
Tiamat: Oh. Is Husbandji there?
TY: No, he left for work over half an hour ago.
Tiamat: Oh. Well, he’s not answering his cellphone so I thought that he was home.
TY: Well he’s not. He’s at work.
Tiamat: Why isn’t he answering his cellphone?
TY: How the fuck should I know?!!! Well, he probably left it at his desk and isn’t there right now.
Tiamat: Oh. Can I ask you a question?
TY: (sigh.) Sure.
Tiamat: How much is a postage stamp?
TY: 42 cents.
Tiamat: Okay, bye.
When will I learn, my Minions? When will I learn…
