Just when I thought I was safe...

The phone rang today, and the familiar sense of dread came upon me. But wait, I thought. It's all good. The election is over. I answered.

"Hello, I'm calling to remind you, you should have voted for Obama yesterday."
"Well... I ... Uh... That was yesterday?"
"Yes, that was yesterday! How could you forget?"
"I just... I..."
"Do you know your precinct number?"
"My number?"
"Yes, your number. It's not rocket science. It's a number!"
"No, I don't, I-"

Okay, I'm sorry. I'm sorry that this is all a lie. I'm sorry that I didn't really answer the phone. I was afraid. I admit it.

I'm sorry if it was you calling.


  1. Well, it wasn't me. But I don't blame you; I never answer my phone if I don't know who is calling.

  2. Good reason not to answer the phone.
