It’s Amazing We Ever Get Anything Done

Back in November I showed you a little bit of the behind-the-scenes process that Tracey and I go through for the Listen To Your Mother show. Being silly is a part of our partnership and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

(Err, mostly. I wouldn’t want to commit to that statement 100% because I might lose my “Taskmaster Card”.)

We are indeed, more often than not, silly. Today’s evidence is a conversation that resulted from this Facebook status I posted after I had been trying to finish up a huge article for deadline and then, well, it’s self-explanatory:

The status:
OH MY GOSH, Tracey’s cell phone is calling me repeatedly, without her knowledge or participation. #CRAZY

The conversation:
Tracey: My apologies to anyone I randomly text or call today. I promise, I am getting a bag of rice to submerge this thing in tonight!! It’s WEIRD!

Me: This is what horror movies are made of.

Tracey: Ree! Ree! Ree!

Our friend Marianne (Who really had no idea what a hot mess she was stepping into but did a hilarious job nonetheless): I didn’t know phones got hungry and crank-called. I’ll be submerging mine in Cheetos tonight. Thanks for the tip. My phone keeps ordering things from the JC Penney catalogue.

Tracey: This is what happens when I take a shower. I get my phone wet and then? Then my life is RUINED. Freaking showers.

Me: Marianne: At least it’s not prank-calling your business partner and making her scream, “HELLOOOOOOOO????” into her phone. Tracey: Dang, now that we FINALLY have you showering, I guess it was a bad idea.

Tracey: I’m gonna go au naturale for a while then.

Me: Oh lord.

Tracey: GET YOUR WORK DONE WOMAN.

Me: I AM TRYING BUT MY PHONE KEPT RINGING.

Tracey: It just did it again, didn’t it?

Me: THERE IT GOES AGAIN. GET YOUR PHONE UNDER CONTROL, WOMAN!!!

Tracey: Sorry.

Me: Take the battery out, dude!

Tracey: Oh my God I am laughing so hard, I am crying and snorting!!

Me: And don’t even tell me it’s out already. I’ll have to hide in the closet.

Tracey: Reee!! REEE!!!

Me: *faint* and *crumple to the floor*

Aaand…scene.

I love her.

    Oh my God – I totally found “my people.”

    Not that my old people would even claim me anymore.

    You guys are a riot! And I’m HONORED! I totally made the blog! Forget stupid Whoopi & Barbara. I’ve never really forgiven them for giving my name to security. Some people have NO sense of humor.
