I wrote the following quite a while ago. Today I am clearing out my drafts and decided to release the hounds. I really did get a prank call the day I wrote this post. The call really did freak me out. But I was not scared off. You guys are stuck with me. For better or worse remember? No wait, that’s just Billy Bob 🙂
I got a prank phone call today. That has not happened in forever. If I think about it, the last one I got was back in the old days circa 1985-86 when we had a landline. I used to get calls regularly from an old lady whose daughter had our number before we did. I always talked to her because it was so sad. She was trying to get her daughter and thought I was her. No matter how I tried to explain, she’d prattle on. I’d even answer her “yes mama”. I wonder whatever happened to her. I don’t consider that prank calls though, I’m just musing and rambling.
Does anyone remember calling up people randomly and asking: “Is your refrigerator running? Well you better go catch it.” Or calling a grocery store and asking: “Do you have Prince Albert in a can? Well you better let him out!” For you youngsters, Prince Albert was pipe tobacco. Those calls were harmless fun right?
I hope that is all today’s call was too. For the caller who asked to talk to Billy Bob, he is not real. The person Billy Bob is based on shuns all social media and when I tell him about this, he’ll say I should shun all social media too. And I just may. I’m on the fence as they say. Or as a technical dweeb, I might just need to get someone to assist me with my privacy settings.
It doesn’t help that I am reading Revival by Stephen King. I’m already jumpy enough as it is. Hello, Pastor Danny, is that you?? Great now I’ve got chills. Oooooooohhhhhhh!
As always, more to come.
