Self:  Hello?

Voice on Telephone [amidst incessant giggles and background voices]:  Um….Mr. [Port Swiller]?…..Um…. This is “Jane” from PNC Bank….

Self: Uh, huh…

VoT:  Um….We were, shhh, just calling, um, to confirm your transfer of, um, one million dollars from, um, your account, to, um, your, um, hee-hee (stop it!), um, [Middle Gel]….

Self: Riiiight….

VoT: Um…sshhh… so, you approve?

Self: Oh, sure.  Er, you know that my phone has Caller ID, don’t you?

VoT:

Self:  Yes.  And you might want to lose the giggling.

VoT: Click!

Later that evening:

Self: Ah, [Middle Gel]? You know that phone call this afternoon?

SD: Er, yes…..

Self: Worst. Prank. Evah.

SD: DAAA-aaad! You know I can’t keep from laughing!

Self: Yes, yes I do.  And here’s a piece of advice: Don’t take up poker.
