“Pleeeeease, you call—but here’s exactly what you should say.”
Bossy typically attends to all the tasks in her life with the exception of one: phoning. Or would that be calling? Is phoning the equivalent of saying you itch something instead of scratch something? Is it the equivalent of saying you need to Hoover, instead of vacuum? Bossy isn’t certain, but one thing is clear: she hates the telephone.
And she’s not strictly talking about hideous business calls, placed to companies like Verizon to complain about spotty Internet service. Bossy is even talking about calling her friend Martha.
This is why Bossy pushes the responsibility of all phone-related activity to her husband, where responsibility equals having to wave Bossy away because she is standing right there miming things she wants her husband to say.
Which is what today’s Ten-Word challenge is all about. In exactly ten words, can you please tell Bossy who performs your dirty work, and what that loathed task is?
