Comfortably Numb

Well, hmmmm... I just called my mom and dad. There was some weird vacuum kind of sound, and no one answered, so I said, "Hello...hello?". No one responded, but I heard myself asking, 'Hello?' with about a one second delay. I occasionally have a bit of paranoia that my phone is being tapped (not sure why anyone would do it, but it makes me feel very mysterious and important), but this time, there was just no one there. I assumed one of the other phones was off the hook, compliments of Maxwell's new phone fetish. Anyway, I sounded super cool (I'm one of the few who actually likes to hear herself talk) and the boys were outside with Chris, so I proceeded to entertain myself by asking, with my best Pink Floyd imitation, "Is their anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me. Is their anyone home?" I paused significantly between each question, really enjoying the creepy sound my voice was making . I continued, advising myself to "Relax, relax it's just a little pin......prick...they'll be no more ahhhhhhh...ah...ah...but you may feel a little sick." I laughed uproariously (heck, I think I'm really funny sometimes) did some noisy breathing and and then feeling a tad self-conscious, I hung up.

One second later my mom called and said, "What the hell was that all about? Have you been drinking again?"
