At the Sound of the Drone

Why do so many of us (I’m including my household here, too, natch) have the same tired old message on our phone answering machines? You know, the “We can’t get to the phone right now…”

C’mon, we all know what that really means – some version of: “Mom’s getting a manicure, Dad’s picking up a “gotta have it” gizmo at Home Depot, Madison’s cruising the mall, and Dylan is losing his shirt at on-line poker.”

Why don’t we just cut to the chase with a simple: “Hey robbers, come on over?”

PS: If you have a better alternative, please, please share it with us, as long as it doesn’t involve talking Chihuahuas or two-month-olds, no matter how talented or gifted.
