Donor: No one seems to be answering! I guess we’ll have to call back later.
Charlene: KITTENS???? Hello, Dearborns??? Who’s manning the phones now?
(small kitten voice) Psssst…..It’s Geraldine’s shift, but she’s texting again!
Charlene: G E R A L D I N E ! ! ! !
Geraldine: Huh? What? What’d I do???
Charlene: Girl, you have to jump on that phone as soon as it rings! People are calling with their contributions to the Dogathon. We can’t make them wait!
Charlene: Okay, maybe you misunderstood what I meant by “jumping on the phone.” Calm down, honey, I’m not angry with you. I know you have so much to say and lots and lots of friends.
Geraldine: I think I’ve got the hang of it now, Charlene. I’m sorry to be texting and Tweeting when I should have been on the phones. It’s back to work now! Here comes another call!
Geraldine: Hello, this is Itty Bitty Kitty Committee Telethon Headquarters – Geraldine speaking! I’d be happy to take your pledge now! Oh, you’ll be giving $25? Thank you very much! The Humane Society will put it to good use for the kitties. Have a nice day!
Geraldine: :::::ducking under desk::::::: Just one more Tweet and I have to update my Facebook page and then I have to get back to Sheldon about changing shifts with him and I meant to text Marla about that sparkleball flea market on Saturday….
Charlene: Oh, Geraldine. You’re the world’s best social networker!!
Thanks for the laugh, "Kathryn"!
