TITLE: Me My Cell and I
By Deborah Caruso


Call Finn!
Heís got to be there. I have to talk to him about the Moscow account.
Hey! A blinker would be nice! honk, honk
Some people, I just donít know.
Fritz? Whatís your hairy mug doing on Finnís phone? I know you didnít pick up.

Hey Andrea, I thought youíd get a kick out of Fritz here.

Oh, thatís just adorable, just adorable! Finn! Glad you picked up.
Now what is this guy trying to do?

Who are you talking to Andrea?

This idiot that is in such a big hurry!

Youíre on your way home, I take it. You always call me when youíre on your way home.

I wish I were going home, but I have to drive to the other side of the city, and hopefully I get the conference call with Mattie and the execís from Moscow over with before I get there. Thatís why I called. Is the final ad done?

Yes maam! Iíll email it right to ya!

Hold on, wait until I get through with the conference call at 5, Oh, my thatís just 10 minutes away. Anyway, be sitting on ready, ok?

You got it!

After the conference callÖ
What is the matter with you people, just stay in the lines, please!

You were saying, Andrea?

After the conference call, Iíll look up Mattieís email address on my phone and, you can email the file directly to her, that is if they liked the mock up we sent them.

Theyíll like it, donít you worry.

If one more person cuts in front of me!

Andrea, did you hear what they did at the office today for Jack?

No, I didnít whatíd they do?
Now whatís she doing,? Oh, putting lipstick on, thatís nice.
Jack turned 60, didnít he!

You got it! The big 6 0!!!

I forgot all about that party today!

Yes maam, you missed it. Didnít you have your cell phone set to remind you?

I forgot to do that too, I had a meeting anyway.

Yeah, I tried to call you and page you, but all I got was voice mail.

They make us turn our cells off in there, you know how it is. They donít want all those little tunes going off .

I know. At the party, Nadia had her phone handy and taped the funniest thing youíve ever seen in your life. When you get off with me, check your email, she sent it to you.. It is hilarious!

Why do people drive 55 miles an hour in the left lane? They must not have anything else to do today but make me late. Heís just taking his sweet little time. Please move over buddy!

Hey Andrea, talk to me! Everybody has headed over to Samís place.

Where is Sam place?

5555 Ö ok, got it. My phone has GPS, Iíll map it later... Iíll try to make it. How long do ya think theyíll be there?

Wait just a minute and Iíll find out, thatís Sam calling me now. Hold on just a minute.

It better be a minute buster. I really need to touch base with Erica before Mattie calls at 5; I didnít factor in any holding time. Where is that CD I wanted to listen to? Maybe I can locate that while Iím on hold. I know I put it in this CD case somewhere. Now where is it?
Ok Mr. Iím going, Iím going.

Andrea, Sam said theyíd be there pretty late. Iím going in just a bit; maybe Iíll see ya there.

Thatís the craziest thing!

Seeing me is crazy?

No, I canít find a CD.
Am I the only one that knows how to drive around here? He cut right in front of me! Learn how to drive, will ya?

Listen, try to make it tonight, ok? If you can get everything done you have to get done, that is. Say goodbye Fritz.

Thatís cute, Fritz waving. Ok, bye bye Fritzie! Thatís Mattie now. Gotta go!


Andrea, I have Mr. Michaels and the CEO, Mr. Alexander on the line. Howís that ad coming along? They loved it!

Meanwhile, in heaven,
Noah, things might have been a little different if we would of had us one of those!

Youíre probably right, Moses.

This was interesting to read, but a little hard to understand who was saying what. I couldn't follow the speakers in turn, though I did understand from the title that most of it would be between the MC and the phone. Italics would help to identify who's who. Nice job. ^_^
