Did you try to call us last Friday? If you were mysteriously hung up on, I can explain.
As per our usual arrangement, Harper was hanging out on the bed, shut safely in our room, zoning out to Elmo so I could take a shower. When I came back into the bedroom, from the adjoining bathroom, the phone was sitting in front of Harper on the bed.
It was off the hook.
"Yook, I haf dat phone!"
"Did it ring?"
"Who was on the phone?"
"Nobody was dare!"
Hmm. . . If it was important, they will call back.
Next time I'm taking the phone into the bathroom.
