My husband has this special ring tone for me on his phone. He didn't pick it - my oldest son, in a fit of sarcasm and desire to be a real smart aleck, set it up. It begins like a tornado siren, quickly moves to a blaring horn, and a deep voice shouts,
Warning! Warning! It's the WIFE! It's the WIFE!
It's so not funny to me, but he keeps it because THEY both think it's funny - and if I happen to call when a customer is in his office -
well, it's a real icebreaker, I'll give you that.
"Aren't these milkshakes the best?" he said. We smiled and nodded. He continued, "What is your favorite? I really like the strawberry. The chocolate is delicious as well." He looked at me and said, "I'll bet you like the chocolate. You look like a chocolate milkshake kinda gal."
Now. I've been around the block and I know flirting when I see it, but I just let it go.
Just then, I heard a familiar tone. It began as a tornado siren, quickly blossomed into a blaring horn, and as he scrambled madly for his phone, beet red faced, I heard the dreaded words I know good and well he didn't want me to hear -
Warning! Warning! It's the WIFE! It's THE WIFE!!!
