Rinnnnnnnnnnngggggg...Hello?

Sitting here with deadlines for more jobs than I can find on my desk and in the middle of a thought, the phone rings...

rinnnnnnnngggg...Hello?

(small girly voice on the other end) "Hel...Hello Can I speak to Miss thing? It's Megan."

Me - Caught off guard (the phone is ALWAYS for me - no one else - ME) "umm...sure ...hold on...."

What the? When did she get OLD enough to receive phone calls? On my phone? From her FRIENDS?
When the fuck did I turn my back and my baby has friends old enough to pick up a phone...and dial...and ask for HER?

Ok, drama much?

Miss Thing comes bounding up the stairs with the grace of a gazelle - another thing I didn't notice until that exact moment. Wow she looks like a teenager...

Me - "It's for you. It's Megan."

Miss Thing - "Oh Hi Meg...." (takes phone and walks directly to her bedroom where she promptly closes it behind her)

I sat here with mouth agape...stunned. I am not going to lie that I DID try to easedrop (from where I was - no I didn't go get a glass and cup it to the door - even though I WANTED to).

10 minutes later - she emerged from her room - hands me the phone and goes "Here ya go."

Here ya go?? No offering of any kind from Miss Thing..

She is already half way down the stairs when I can't HELP myself... "Hey Miss Thing, what did Megan want?"

She yells back, "She wanted to pick out clothes to match tomorrow - jeans with a black shirt."

Oh.

Go about your business. Nothing to see here. DO NOT MIND the woman in the corner rocking... I am NOT ready for this.
Why can't they stay 5?

Oh lookie, your first comment spammers. Ugh. They should all be put on an island and...well...you know.

She got phone friends now? Oh dear GOD, woman, and I thought I had it bad.

I'd be happy to share my happy pills with you, if it'll help.
