Callback Impossible

| Friendly | October 3, 2016

(This is back before everyone had cellphones. My friend would get so many calls his parents gave him his own separate line so he wouldn’t tie up the phone. I’m attempting to call, but I get his answering machine.)

Me: “Hey, [Friend]. It’s me, [My Name]. Just calling to see what you were up to. Call me back when you get the chance. This message will self-destruct in five… four… three… two… one…”

(I then hold my phone over a speaker and play a rather loud explosion sound effect.)

Me: “You are now destroyed. Have a nice day.”

(A few minutes later, my friend calls back.)

Me: “Hello?”

Friend: “Dude, what the h***?! I was down stairs when you called and I could hear your message! I thought my phone exploded!”
