I just got back from a beautiful day at the beach (88 degrees in Del Mar today) and the phone rings.
Hello? No response.. Hello? Alright I know what's coming, this has to be another recorded political message. A live voice comes on and mumbles something. "Oh, she says, You sound like a recording" I'm amused. right I'm the recording now, but I figure it must be the speakerphone. She asks to speak with my wife by her formal name. Normally I screen but I figured the old hag for a vacation timeshare telemarketer and called for my wife to come to the phone.
So my wife answers, I get a look, slightly annoyed when she realizes it's a political call. Soon thereafter the woman launches into her script about how Romney hates women, doesn't support planned parenthood and so on. During the spiel I look to my wife as the caller rambles on and go, you must be registered as a Democrat if you are getting this call. "Yep that's right". At that point the woman goes for the close and asks, "So can we count on your support Tuesday?"
My wife makes one of those faces I get on occasions when she is expressing incredulity at something I said, and answers, " I don't even like obama" You can almost hear the gasp as the woman then asks, "So you are going to vote for Romney?" Now I'm nearby listening in since she's still on speaker and my ears perk up as I think, I'd like to know the answer to that myself. Now even more irritated my wife intones, "Yeah, that's what's going to happen."
Anway, impatient with the whole call I can see she's had enough and she punches the speaker button off. Goodbye!
I Love You Babe!
See Democrats and Republicans can get along after all.
