A New Year Story

So we are in the truck heading to our friend KoJo's house on New Year's Eve to have an adult beverage and share our Christmas gifts, and Mrs. Bigun asks me to call her and tell her that we are on the way. KoJo lives with Gary - a great guy, who has a dry sense of humor and struggles with laughing at our jokes and maintaining the persona of responsible dad to his teen-age son. Mrs. Bigun and I test his mettle every chance we get.

I hit the "contacts" on my cell phone, find KoJo and press send...(and no, I just wish I had an I-Phone)

Him: Hello...(great! Gary answered...it's so on...)

Bigun: High! Can I interest you in some Amway products?

Him: ....ahh...no....

Bigun: (thinking for sure he's checked his caller ID and knows it's me) Well then how about some Viagra?

Him: No....I'm good-to-go there....

Bigun: Well, we're on the way over, and this is a courtesy call; we're doing an inspection and I think you should hide all your drug paraphernalia and prophylactics (I'm trying to use big words).

Him: What a jerk....(Click)

Bigun: He hung up on me! That's strange...I think he called me a jerk!

Mrs. Bigun: What? No way! Call them back!

Bigun: I'm gonna call them back.

I hit redial, and a woman answers....

Bigun: Hello, Kathy?

Woman: No, this isn't Kathy ya jerk! (Click)

Bigun: She said it wasn't Kathy, called me a jerk and hung up...weird! (I'm thinking she's playing with me now...too funny...)

Mrs. Bigun: Let me call her...

Mrs. Bigun dials the number on the phone instead of hitting redial or going to the contact list.

Mrs. Bigun: Hello, Kojo? Hey - were you just talking to the Bigun? No? You've been on the phone the whole time? Ok, well, we'll be there in a couple minutes...see ya then.

Bigun: What number did you dial? ....6506, lets see, the number I have is ...8506....

The realization hits me like E. Coli-laced Taco Bell in a German Pro Triathletes' Stomach -

Bigun: Holy Crap! I'm 44 years old, and I just made a crank phone call!

I actually think Mrs. Bigun might have peed, just a little. She's still laughing about it.

So you're the one! I'm in the 850 area code and I was getting ready for my "special" party when I get this call telling me I should hide all of my paraphernalia and prophylactics. Do you know how long that took me? You know something is really funny when you laugh so hard a little pee comes out, good times, good times!

What an excellent way to start the new year - with a crank call. I think I might try that myself on Dec 31.

Andra Sue said...

Hee hee. That's awesome. What a great way to start your new year. Crank calls once a month for the rest of 2008, I say! :)

Next time you call me I'm going to pretend I don't know who it is. Oh wait, that already happens! ;)

Bigun the responsible adult! Crank calls. Though it has put us all on alert for biguns antics. Next time we get a crank caller I'll ask if its Bigun before hanging up!

Agent "IP" Johnson said...

This is agent Johnson with the FCC. We received a call from a Florida resident about a harassing phone call and were referred to your site by an anonymous tip.

I'm afraid we'll be confiscating this post as evidence in the pending litigation.
