Quoted from lakedeal, from a comment on my LJ.

"I've suddenly realised just how oddly disfunctional our phone conersations really are. I mean, generally, they run like this:

[Isabelle (copinggoggles' sister>)answers sounding dejected when she realises that once again, it's me. She'd probably be even more dejected if she knew I don't know how to spell her name]

copinggoggles: Hello. Just a second, there is something interesting going on in the background here.

lakedeal: *laughs at whatever is going on in copinggoggles' house, as copinggoggles' phone is freakishly receptive and picks up any sound in the room at all*

copinggoggles: Just a sec. Mouth full.

lakedeal: That's okay, I need to pee.

copinggoggles: Okay then, I have something really important to tell you. Oh wait. Something interesting is happening.

copinggoggles' Mother: WHEN WE GO SHOPPING YOU HIDE IN THE CHANGING ROOMS TO ESCAPE ME!!!!!!

lakedeal: *cannot speak as she is laughing at copinggoggles so hard she can't breathe.

copinggoggles: *laughs at copinggoggles*

copinggoggles: I have to go now to study/sleep/fight with my sister.

As you can see, the amount of actual conversation that goes on is pretty non-existant =P"
