During the season when the phone rings at home, I always assume it’s "work" calling.

Even though it usually isn’t.

In fact, in my 16 years here, I’ve caught myself almost answering the phone at home with, "Holiday World, this is Paula…"

That didn’t happen last night, but still this conversation seemed to be natural fodder for the HoliBlog.

The phone rang at 9:23 pm…

"Hello?"

Hello…?

(pause)

"Yes, hello?"

Hello? Flo?

"Flo?"

Flo.

"Flo? No…"

No?

"No."

No Flo?

"No. No Flo."

Oh…

(At this point I started laughing) "… we sound like a Dr. Suess book!"

Who?

"Dr. Seuss … you know … the children’s books."

Who?

"Doctor … oh, never mind. I think you have the wrong number."

No kidding!
