Speaking of Children and Phones...

One time when I was a child, probably six or seven years old, I answered the phone. The person on the other end said something unintelligible, and I said I didn't understand and asked him to repeat himself. He said it again, this time interspersing his words with laughter, which made it even harder for me to understand what he was saying!

So I gave up and handed the phone to my older sister (who was nine or ten), who understood that the boy was reciting a long list of obscenities, and hung up on him.
