Jake makes the call to his wife concerning the “emergency”.
“Susan, you’re not going to believe this.” I was hoping she really would believe this, clenching the phone and secretly reading from notes I jotted down to prepare for this call. It was common practice for me to make notes prior to an important call, and this was no different, though it was my wife. Her voice sounded calmer than what I expected. “What Jake, what won’t I believe?” “That emergency, or what I claimed to be an emergency was actually Tex playing a prank on me.”
Please stay tune next week when you hear the crusty old cable guy say, “Hey big man, let me hold a dolla.”
