Was That The Phone?

I don't get that many phone calls. It could be because that I'm on the Do Not Call List or that when asked to give my phone number on a registration form or something I generally give the wrong number. My number isn't unlisted...I'm too cheap to pay the extra fee.

I have a cell phone (who doesn't) but I don't really like to talk on it. I'm always paranoid of going over my minutes. I got a friend who talks on the phone so much that she sometimes goes over her monthly plan which has unlimited minutes. I know!

It seems that whenever I do get a call I'm always in the shower. When I was younger and more svelte if I heard the phone ringing while in the shower I would slip, drip and slide all the way to the phone to get there in time to hear a dial tone.

These days...not so much!

If I think I hear the phone I'll turn the shower off, turn my head and listen intently. Was that the phone? I always think I hear a ringing of some kind, or worse, I think it might be somebody knocking at the door. In my younger days I might've slipped, dripped and slid to get to the door wearing only what the good Lord gave me. These days....not so much...well, maybe? It could be the UPS guy! Yummy!

What things do you think you hear in the shower?

Tune in next time for Seens From the New Porch!

I used to be a slip, drip, slide and runner until my back problems. Well that and once I went to drop off some home canned items to my partner's twenty-something gay niece. I won't be going over there unannounced any time soon. She answered the door in a towel, well actually, we gave up on the door bell and started walking back to the driveway and she ran out the door after us, in her towel, which she was having trouble holding on to. Being the shy person that I am, I was most embarrassed at having seen her assets. She seemed to think nothing of it.

I always think about Psycho. I had to get rid of the shower curtain and get a shower door.

I DO hear things in the shower...I always have this thought that it's the doorbell, or was that the cell phone or the land line phone..And, why, for goodness sakes should we care..??...But, it is there..My problem is that I feel that the ones calling are thinking I am ignoring them...
Always fun to come here, as you have "food for thought"...
Have a great week...

I seem to hear ringing in the shower also, as well as other times. Or if a phone rings on the TV, I tend to try to answer my own phone. :)

I don't get many calls either--but I like that. Even on my cell--and I don't give out the number for that very reason. But, like you, I get "calls" only when I'm in the shower or vacuuming. Nobody ever leaves a message either.
