two ladies from the past

AB
HellloooOOoooOOOoo?”

PAMIE
Hellloooooooo.

AB
So, this is the worst day ever.

PAMIE
I’m sorry.

AB
Cell phone broken. Internet broken. Husband out of town. No food. No wine. You’ve got a dead dog. Worst day ever.

PAMIE
Yeah, it’s not the best. And I think I’m getting a cold.

AB
I have no way of communicating with anyone in the outside world, other than this phone right here.

PAMIE
It’s like you’re a woman from the past.

AB
I wish I were a woman from the past. I might as well be.

PAMIE
Yeah, well. There are probably a lot of good things about us not being ladies in the past.

AB
Huh. Such as.

PAMIE
Like, we’d both be on these phones with long cords and we’d be up to our elbows in meatloaf fixings.

using flickr to send a note to mad.

Aw, Mad. I sure do miss you. Last night at the hotel I saw an ad for the movie Sky High, and now I owe you an apology.

Remember when I tried to talk you out of watching it, that night at the crawfish restaurant when you told me you wanted to see it? Remember how I told you I heard it “wasn’t funny” and “not that good”? Remember how I couldn’t figure out why you’d even know what that movie was? I thought you were talking about a movie starring Snoop Dogg. Ask your mama. Anyway, that’s why I was such a snob about the movie. I’m sure it’s great. And yes, I promise to call you if I ever get to meet Hilary Duff. Read more

Ha! Hi.

AB
Why are you laughing at me?

PAMIE
Why did you answer the phone like that?

AB
Like what?

PAMIE
“Hellllo000oo0oo0?”

AB
Shut up. Did I sound like that?

PAMIE
“Hellllo000oo0oo0?”
