HELLO, YOU'VE REACHED...
One of the funniest things I've heard in a long time happened yesterday. What ever happened to the classic telephone salutation? Caller I.D. - that's what!
Returning a call from a friend who shall remain nameless (to protect the not so innocent), the person on the other end doesn't respond, "This is...." or even "Hello". No, this is the way it the telephone was answered:
"You've interrupted the Hilary Duff E! True Hollywood Story!"
I could not stop laughing for about two full minutes (time it - it's a long time!). Tears in my eyes. Laughing to the point where Person X finally said: "It's not THAT funny!" But it was. On many many many levels.
...and yet a little sad. Mostly on his/her part!
