    Dear GG,

    Your suggestion is a killer suggestion. But her user ID in IL certainly should not be one of her names. Her MIL might think her son is becoming a saint.

    Dearest knbg,

    Shame on me for taking so long to respond. Callers or no callers, I do manage to switch off my mind as proved by this unforgivable delay. But believe me, it is blissful living in lala land!

    You know Bhargs, I love the way you write. It is like looking into your thoughts and I so love all those lovely smileys you use. They make the post seem so jolly. :-D

    Thanks a lot for the lovely response and for forgoing those few moments of shut eye to do so. :blush:

    Dear JS Ma'am, I so agree with you about how boring daily conversations with the same people can get. Whenever I get such calls about sambar and rasam and asking what I cooked or did etc. I tend to go onto a 'hmm, hmmm, hmmmm' mode, just making the necessary sounds to ensure the other person I am listening! :p

    What I would not give for those days of just a landline when people only called if absolutely necessary. Am sure postmen would also be delighted to be back in business.

    Dear OJ-da,

    The hubby has tried that a number of times. It works for that call and they put down the phone immediately. However, it is indeed unfortunate that it has done nothing to reduce the number of calls. In fact there are times when various employees from the same organization call the same day or on consecutive days.

    Will have to think up some new trick.

    Loved it to the core sachi garu. You have such powerful way of narrating things. One has to just go with the flow of your narration. Such flow and expression!!
