Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “call.” Use the word “call” or any word that contains those letters in that order. Have fun!
I guess the first thing that comes to mind would be a telephone call. These days our phone rarely rings, and when the mobile goes off, I jump in my seat!
Years ago, any phone calls would be cold callers, double glazing sales or the like, rarely someone actually wanting to talk to us and pass the time of day.
Even going X directory didn’t stop them all, and I lost my temper once with a company that rang us three times on the same night by saying ‘Don’t you guys talk to each other, or are you all working on the same page!’ and slammed the phone down.
These days if the phone rings, I anticipate bad news. My mobile has identification on callers, so at least I know who’s calling. Any number I don’t recognise makes me instantly wary, especially with the recent scams going around.
On the other hand, or ear, I rarely call anyone, preferring to write, email or text!
