Hook, Line and Stinker
I almost felt bad about this. But not for the intended victim, for the collateral one.
Yesterday Jenni and I went to the Madison Grill for Lunch. We go there a few times a month. The food is good and the waitresses are all very friendly and helpful. You can get discount coupons online to at www.madisongrillindy.com
if you want to try it.
So there we are at the Grill waiting, after Ty our waitress brought drinks and had taken the order. I tell Jenni I'm going to read her the Bowling Post I did yesterday so she can "hear the drama and the writers intention." Out comes the iPhone, and I give a dramatic reading with all the proper pauses and breaks, with all the intensity and conviction. Then the food arrives and we chow down. I slip the iPhone back into my shirt pocket and soon we are on the road.
I drop Jenni off at the entry to her work then I head to mine. In my parking lot I conceive a "funny" duh moment, and send this text (from the iPhone). "You didn't pick up my iPhone did you? I have looked everywhere and can't find it!!!
Jenni's response: No!!!!!!!!
I get out of the car and walk in, hang my coat and send: Duh, I'm using it to Text! Gotcha
Now here is where the almost
feeling bad comes in...Jenni's response: Ty is out in the parking lot looking for it! You Ass!
Followed by another quick response: Kathy and Cindy congratulate you! Ahhhhhhhhhhhh
So, like I said I almost feel sorry for Ty, but hey, I did give her a 45% tip since we used a $5 off coupon, and because of the Holiday.
I called Jenni and (this time) she caller ID'd my incoming and answered, "Duhr." I said call and tell them anything you want, but tell them they can stop looking. She said I had to call, and I said no.... I wasn't the one who got fished right off the Pier! So she called and said we found it, and thanked them for looking.
The irony here is that Jenni has a fishing game on her iTouch, I don't even need it! I landed Gulliblefish with an ether phone line!Chuck Pace ©2008
