I Wasn’t Even Trying To Be Funny … 4? or is it 5?

– 5 –

Here’s how it happened …


When Carol, 

(the aggressive one) said, 

‘’Why do you think phones were invented … ?’’ 

looked up and stared over at Suzanne’s office

… on the other side of Carol’s desk …

into the tiny space between the edge of the open door and the 

window on the far wall … 

I don’t know why I fixated on that particular spot … 

i stared at it wondering …why WERE telephones 

invented … ?

i knew damn well they weren’t invented 

so that people could be called for 

work assignments … ! 

I was being totally over analytic 

as usual … 

coming up with all kinds of thoughts on the 

subject … 

for a split second I even saw Alexander Graham Bell 

calling his assistant …   

( … what was his name … Watson …? )

 to come upstairs because 

he had spilled some chemical on his 

hand …  

all of this thinking and wondering happened within a split second


I guess the timing was right …  you know …

one beat ….. two beat …..


 the room got real 

quiet … 

 suddenly it dawned on me … 

I didn’t know why in hell (!)

the telephone was invented … !


i think a confused or maybe concerned look

came over my face …

I said, 

‘’wull .. I don’t know …’’ (?!)

after that all of my senses shut down completely 

except my hearing … !

wall of sound suddenly washed over me … !

you know, that high pitched cackling noise

women make when they all start laughing at the

same time … !?

don’t they call that the 


or something like that … ???

the explosion of sound practically knocked my head backward … !!

(continued … )
