The Telephone Game

I talk to my sister almost daily on the phone. Not surprisingly, our conversations involve quite a few interruptions from the kids.

Me, phone at ear but yelling at daughter Jilly: “Don’t put your Crocs on the table!”

Jilly: “But, they are wet!

Me: “I don’t care if they are wet. No Crocs on the table! Ewwww, they’re dirty too!”

Silence from sister on other end of line, and then I hear her say: Ahh. . .Crocs!”

“What?” I ask her.

She: “I thought you said crotch.”


  1. I actually fell off the couch laughing so hard. Talk about misunderstanding!

  2. I would have preferred her crotch. Crocs don’t belong anywhere than in landfill for future generations to marvel at their ugliness.

  3. My friends all have five million kids too, so they just keep talkin’….

  4. Alpha DogMa says

    What goes on at your sister’s house? And can I come visit?

  5. Life As I Know It says

    Ha Ha!

    I can’t remember the last time I had an uninterrupted phone conversation.

  6. ROFL.

    I heard a great song years ago about two friends on the phone, with one trying to give a cake recipe to the other while simultaneously taking care of her kids – add 1.5 cups of flour, no just two slices of bologna, 1 cup of sugar, just TWO malted milk balls… It was a riot, and sadly very close to the truth.

  7. Whirlwind says

    Phone, people still use those? 😛 Seriously, that was hilerious.

  8. I’m so glad you have a blog so you can save these wonderful moments for your children. Heh

  9. Rock the Cradle says

    The telephone game at work.

    See, I thought you said SCOTCH.

    Shows you where my mind is…

  10. Shamelessly Sassy says

    hahahaha LOVE THIS POST! 🙂 (enough to use the CAPS, i promise.)

  11. I hear what your saying about the phone coversations!


    I wish I could say something more clever than that is hilarious. I also wish I were five inches taller, 10 pounds lighter and 5 years younger, but I guess none of us are getting our wishes tonight.
