Our big screen is hooked to Directv which means it has a phone line attached also. When our HDDVR was installed the first few minutes of viewing revealed that when the phone rings, the callers name and phone number appear right there in the middle of Boston Legal. Or which ever reality based show you may be watching.
Two nights ago a call came thru from a neighboring town. After reading the name, both Marilyn and Juli said, "She's a customer." The number was kind of foriegn meaning it was a cell phone. The conversation went like this,,,
Her:(in her most secret and seductive voice) "Whair ya." Did I mention she was drunk.
Cliff: (Taking her lead and using my secret voice) "Home."
Her: "Wader ya dewin."
Cliff: "Watching TV."
Her: "Why nwot come on down." (the background noise indicates that Bubba has just sacrificed a virgin to the Bud Light God's)
Her: alarmed now- "Are those kids voices I hear."
Cliff: "Yes. But they're just leaving."
Her: "Who are ya."
Cliff: (sensing the second verse just starting again I said) "A wrong number I think." "Hello" "HellOooo."
Marilyn: "Did she want to board her dog?"
Cliff: "Nope, she was just wanting to visit."
Look folks, when you live 9 miles from the nearest town, you use what you can for entertainment.
