It's late, and Felicity has randomly woken up, as she's been doing lately (I think it's a growth spurt, whee). I feed her, and am rocking her to sleep in my arms. Eric is playing video games.
My brother calls my cell phone. I don't answer, as I'm with baby. Eric doesn't answer, because he's lazy.
He then calls Eric's cell phone. Eric finally think to himself, "Hm, maybe I should answer it, could be important." He goes to find his phone, but doesn't get there in time. He thinks to himself, "Oh, well."
David THEN calls the house phone. Of course, at this point I'm nearly livid, because I'm trying to put my baby back to sleep, and if Eric would just ANSWER THE FREAKING PHONE she'd be asleep already and back in her crib, instead of jerking awake and looking for the source of the noise.
Eric sees that it's my brother, again, but instead of ANSWERING THE PHONE he ignores it, because now he's annoyed that my brother has called so late, and so many times.
HOW THE HELL DOES THAT MAKE ANY SENSE AT ALL?
Wouldn't the fact that somebody has called EVERY freaking phone in the house signify to any normal person that they REALLY need to talk? I was assuming an emergency or something. Eric was just "annoyed" and so didn't answer.
So I finally put baby back to sleep, and call my brother back... and he says sorry for calling so often, because it wasn't an emergency after all, HE JUST HAD A COMMENT ABOUT AN EMAIL CONVERSATION WE WERE HAVING.
WHAT. THE. HELL.
Why couldn't he just EMAIL ME THE DAMN COMMENT?
Why can't my husband just ANSWER THE DAMN PHONE?
Argh. Stupid. Boys. Argh.
