Ring! Ring!

Today’s writing prompt:

Off the hook.

Yesterday after three nuisance telemarketing calls to my landline, despite being on the do-not-call register, I put the phone down on my desk mid-sentence and walked away. I did intend to put it back after a an hour or so but completely forgot!

Last week, a friend who suffers from emphysema called and hesitated before responding to my somewhat strained ‘hello’. Fortunately, I realised just in time who it was and he didn’t cop an ear-full!

I love calls from friends, subscribers and anyone interested in Positive Words magazine but my blood boils when I’m constantly disturbed by someone who wants to sell me something . . . particularly when I’m struggling to get my NaNoWriMo total up to the target.
