Mike's First Wife

Tonight we got a call from an "unknown number." Usually I let these go right to voicemail, but tonight I picked it up because Mike's traveling and I didn't want to miss a call if it was him. They asked for Michael and I said that he wasn't here. I had just gotten out of the shower and was dripping on the floor, so when the lady kept talking, I got a little irked. "My name is Stephanie and I'm calling from the Marriage Research Institute," she said, "When is a good time for me to call back?"

I'm not sure what came over me, but I said, "Mike left this afternoon to visit his other wife and children. Well, they're not actually legally married, since we got married first, but he calls her his wife. He'll be back next week, so you could try him then." She hung up without a word.

Think they'll call back? :)

Why, oh why, can't I think of any sarcastically witty things to say to the annoying people that call us?? You are prolly the only one I know who could think that fast!! Another useful talent you have!!

A true "daughter of Charlie"! I can tell you're a lot alike! Very funny, and No, I don't think they'll call back.
