Happy Birthday Gramma Connie!
I called my Grandma yesterday for her 87th (I think) birthday, and although the call was connected, no one answered and no recorded message came on. I tried again with the same results. I know from experience not to call more than twice because she gets grouchy, (think of a hungry-caged-Feral-cat) so I called my mom with whom Gramma lives. Here is the actual conversation:
Me: "Hi Mom, I called Gramma to wish her a happy birthday but didn't hear anything.
Could you please tell her for me?"
Momma: "Oh that was you? She said she didn't recognize the number."
Me: "I thought she had an answering machine."
Momma: "She does."
Me: "But she doesn't use it?"
Momma: "No. Okay, this is what you need to do, the next time you call her, as soon
she picks up, you need to yell,"Gramma! Gramma! It's me Jodi!"
Momma: "Yeah, just yell at her and she will talk to you."
Me: "Um, thanks."
I am not kidding.
