Not-So-Silent Partner

Marla Campbell

You are the officious-sounding baritone voice that tells me five times a day that you are sorry I missed your call and appreciate my business. You don't say who you are, so I never know how we became business associates. After getting about 25 messages from you repeating this mysterious mantra, I happened to answer your call. To my dismay, and despite my friendly greeting of "Hello?" all you had to say was that you were sorry I missed your call again. Someday, strange friend, I know our stars will align. Until then, I'm so sorry I missed your call.
