Yesterday, Shrek shoveled out my parking place. I was busy thanking him and admiring his hard work as we walked in the apartment. I get my coat off and I hear an odd "beep." I asked him what that sound was, he said, "I don't know, it started about an hour ago and I can't figure it out."
I checked the clock on my table, my camera, my glucose monitor, my blood pressure machine...none of them were even turned on so they might beep. The "beep" happened again and I'm checking all kinds of things, not the smoke alarm, not the CO2 alarm. I figure at some point we would figure it out. Shrek, meanwhile, is checking all the electronic on his side of the room.
I forget about it and still try to pin it down when it beeps, but it is so faint it sounds like it's coming from in front of me. I'm playing here at DC and had an odd idea that I had forgotten to turn off my cellphone the other day when I was out doing laundry. I get it out of my purse (which does not go to work with me) and sure enough, it's on and it's telling me I missed a call.
I look at Shrek and asked him if he called my cellphone, "Yes about an hour...Oh man!!!!" Then he said, "But you weren't home!" "No, but my cellphone was."
Now I know how to make him crazy, turn on the cellphone, call it and let it got to voice mail...have to wait a couple of weeks...
