Fun with the phone

#1.
While I was at work I called home. Lauren answered the phone this is what I heard.
Lauren: Hello? HellOOoo?
(Maxfield giggles in the background)
Lauren: Helloooooww?
(Maxfiled giggles some more)
Lauren: Sorry Bill. We answered the banana, but no one was there.

Picturing Lauren and Max with banana's next to their ears made me laugh.

#2.
The other night the phone rang and I could tell by the caller ID it was a telemarketer. I let Max answer it. I wish I could have heard the person on the other end.

Heh...gotta love the banana to the ear prank.

Not to mention the "Toddler Answering The Phone" prank...since I don't have a toddler, I just put the Dog on the phone and give him the command to bark like there is a serial killer at the door :-)

I love the old stand by - let the kids answer the phone when it's telemarketers. Right after our car v. house accident, I let my girls answer the phone and tell the story to all the poor telemarketers who called. hehehe. serves 'em right.

Banana who?

Cute!

Sometimes I use bananas to "shoot" my cats with.

My children have never had that pleasure, talking to a telemarketer. But now, thanks to you, I will see that they use those irritants as a valuable tool for learning.

Thanks for the giggle and the trick!

the banana phone--aaaah such fond memories....of a couple days ago--I banana phoned my hubby--it was so cute--he thought I was a dork, probably rightly so!

Lauruen was telling me about your blog - glad I found it!

Just today at your house, Jason found that tiny banana that goes with the magnetic monkey and was walking around with it in his mouth - "Mom! I'm hungry! I love'amananas!" So sorry... he continues to be a bad example for Max... Not that Max won't get his turn with thhe new little one...
