Lives of Doctor Wives: It happened again, only weirder

It happened again, only weirder

Brad is on call this weekend. I got to talk to him a little this morning and he mentioned a big surgical case coming up this afternoon. I wished him luck and told him I would talk to him later. I am pretty tired after a lack of sleep last night, so I was on the couch taking a nap while my SugarPea was taking her nap.

I was roused from my nap by the phone ringing.

"Hi, did you call Brad's phone?" (male voice this time)
"Uh, what?" (I'm still groggy and trying to figure out if he meant 'is this Brad's phone' or what was going on since I know I didn't call Brad)
"Are you trying to reach Brad?" (light bulb comes on in my head)
"Oh! My kids must have tried to call him. Is he in surgery?"
"Yes, he is all scrubbed in."
"I'm sorry for the trouble."
"No problem."

I then told the boys this wasn't a good time to be calling daddy. Obviously, I can't fault them for wanting to talk to him. They didn't know he had surgery this afternoon. Oh, the joys.

So do you think Brad told them to call? That does some odd because I would think that if they were calling back because Brad was worried you needed something I think they would have said something other than "did you try and call?" I'll be curious to see what your husband says and why they called you back?

I asked Brad why he called back, and apparently my kids kept calling since he wasn't answering. They are nothing if not persistent. They thought something was wrong since the boys kept calling. Oops.

I guess I "did you call" sounds better than, "this is Brad's phone calling you back." :o)

I guess if I were calling for someone else I would say "I'm returning your call for Brad - just to check in and let you know he's in surgery..."

Yes, that is spoken like a woman. Men aren't as uh, thoughtful. ;o)

I can't even get Chad to carry, answer, or even look at his phone. It is a big waste of $65 per month. Once when he was out of town I almost sent the police to see if he was still alive.
