"Pull the strings! Pull the Strings!"

With all things Junior dominating our lives at this point I've been worried about keeping in touch with my (our) friends.

This afternoon I called a few friends on the way home from work. Some thwarted me and I had to leave messages. However a I did get a few on my phone. What happened next was worth the price of the call.

I called a friend of mine at work and ended up having to leave a message with his frighteningly capable assistant that he HAD to call me before he went home. Then I called his house and ended up talking to his wife for a few minutes.

"_____ you have to do me a favor."

"What's that?"

"You have to promise that when ______ gets home you'll run up to him, wrap him in both arms, give him a huge hug and then say "Hello Sailor!""


"Trust me."

"Fine. You're weird but fine."

After talking for a few more minutes I quizzed her on her responsiblities, coached her to say "Hello" with the emphasis on the second syllable and left her at that.

A little while later her husband returned my call. We chatted for a few minutes and then...

"So why did I have to call you before going home?"

"You have to promise to do something before you walk into the house."


"You have to promise. I'm working on two pieces of the puzzle here."

"Um. Ok."

"You have to buy flowers for _______ before you walk through the door."


"No questions! Just promise. Trust me."

"Ok. I'll buy _______ flowers on the way home."

*insert evil genius type laughter*

Hopefully things go well for them. I did my best.
