We are not home right now so please leave a message after the BEEP

We are often accused of ignoring phone calls.
It isn't because we don't want to talk to you (well, sometimes), it is because we are still living in the stone age. I am rebuked often by my little sister who thinks we are crazy to be living so behind the times. See, we don't have cell phones. We only have one house phone. Our phone is attached to the wall by a cord in our back room, so we can't walk around while talking on the phone nor can we hear you if you call. Needless to say we are looking for a new phone.

Herein lies the problem and the reason we have gone two years without purchasing a new phone.

I don't like the new space age-y looking phones that are being sold. They all look super high tech, and I am not so fond of that. I really like the phones to look regular or even slightly vinatge.

Not crazy super technical. Much to my chagrin and Jeffrey's delight, the stores are full of the space age phones, and there isn't a normal one to be found anywhere! I have scoured the local Target, Radio Shack, and yes, even Wally world. No normal looking phones anywhere. Jeffrey informes me that the space age phones are the norm now, but I refuse to believe him.

So either I need to give in to the enevitable and modernize the look in my home, or I need to fork out a large sum and get someone to custom build a decent portable phone. Sad that modernization can't look nicer, isn't it.

In the meantime, if we don't answer the phone when you call, just remember it isn't personal, its just our phone is in the back bedroom and we can't here it. Unless we don't like you. Then it is personal. Bless your heart.
