Let me start over....
Yesterday, when I came thru the door, the light was flashin' on the caller ID....Not a number I recognize....Roy either...we screen....but a message was left on the answerin' machine.
Roy couldn't understand one single word said so it was up to me to decipher the message.
I listened and came up with:
A) it was my sister.
B) it was National FigLeafDay.
My sister has the same squeaky voice as I do but she speaks more softly....I have over come that squeakiness by being loud.....I speak a bit more clearly and distinctly....but her....very hard to discern what was she is sayin' on all the modern devices....cell phones and digital answerin' machines!
Roy and I were amused that she would call to tell me that it was National FigLeafDay and that there was a day for it!!
I called her....got her voicemail thingy....I left this message:
"Happy National FigLeafDay to you too! We are wearin' nothin' but our Figleaves for the occasion. Do you want me to send pictures? Love Ya!"
It wasn't 5 minutes later that she called me back.
"Sister! Not National FigLeafDay!"
And she repeated what "Day" it was.
I replied, "Fiddlin' Day?"
I was baffled by this....why would she call me for "Fiddlin' Day"??
"NO, NO, NO!!"
and she repeated it again.
I have absolutely no clue to what she just said!!
There was a long pause....we don't spell....my mother left me a note once when I was 14 to "flod" the clothes....she hasn't lived that down.
We don't spell....So my sister said, "Brothers and Sisters? It's Brothers and Sisters Day!!"
The light bulb switched on..."OOOOOOOOOOOh, Siblings!!! I get it! And YOU thought it was best to call your idiot sister??"
"Yes! Now put your clothes back on and DON'T send pictures!!!"
And I'm the smart one!!
