Dan is on the phone, using American Express' automated phone system to check some payments on his credit card. I can tell it's an automated system because his "Yes!" and "No!' replies are a bit too animated, and slightly out of character for a typical Dan-style phonecall. I ask, just to confirm what I already know—that it's an automated call—and he says, "yes," and adds that the voice is "kinda hot."

As I go about my business in the kitchen, I hear him say, quietly, into the reciever:

"What are you wearing?"

    That’s just too dang funny.
    I have to tell you about the great book I am reading, I would highly recommend it to everyone. I am reading Clean & Simple Scrapbooking, The Sequel. I really need to get my own copy of it as soon as I can, I have the librarys copy.
    Cathy, this is really good. There are so many stories I would love to share with you that it has reminded me of. Thanks so much.

    That is too funny! I also find myself talking in a stern voice to those automated messages (like it’s going to get me there any faster! Ha!) I have found the best way to get a live “person” faster is to just keep saying “AGENT” to every question!

    I am sitting at my desk this morning trying to stifle my giggles. I don’t want to draw attention to the fact that I’m not really working very hard… Thanks for the laughs!

    The really funny thing would be if they had anticipated that and had an “easter egg” with a snappy comeback. And we would still love to have the text of his CKU “presentation” if you ever get around to posting it…

    But I’m even more excited by your sidebar album thing-y, I’m a HUGE Tracey Thorn fan and had no idea she had a new album out!!!
    ( yes, I did say album, does that sound ancient? )
