Extension 35

As Matt was glancing through some papers on the end table this morning, his eyes landed on a business card that Emma's speech service coordinator had left. The coordinator had scrawled her phone extension on the card "X 35". The card happened to be laying upside down, and as Matt's eyes fell on it, he smiled and said, "Oh, is this a note for me?" I strained to see the card, wondering what in the world he was talking about, then laughed, "Very funny, men see what they want to see."

"What? What are you laughing about?" Hannah called from the kitchen. "Umm, you have to know how to read to understand it, Hannah." I tried to explain. "What? Just read it to me? I'll understand it." She insisted. "OK," I said, "It says...extension thirty-five." Hannah and Emma erupted into giggles. I guess it's funny either way you look at it.


  1. Men do see what they want to see AND hear what they want to hear. There are so many times when Jeff has only listened to half of what I have said. Apparently the sentence got boring half way through and he stopped listening. I will have to add some "men attention grabbing" words to my sentences at random just so he will listen to the whole sentence.
