We acquired our current home telephone number about 19 months ago. We only keep this number for strategic sheep purposes anyway, so no friends or family ever call us on it. Therefore, every time the phone rings at 2AM, we know it's some bitch attempting a booty call on Littrell (last owner of this number, apparently). They called last night at about 3am, and this morning at about 8am. I am taking suggestions from you, gentle readers, for what the appropriate response should be. My first inclination: Littrell died of AIDS last week. Another friend suggested Oh, his thang fell off - you need to get checked for Herpes simplex 14. And I rather fancied: I'm glad you called - the Health Department wants to test you. I'll post sundry other foul responses as they occur to me.
