Meet My Dad

Wednesday, November 09, 2005 | 0 Comments

My dad is quite a character. In fact he is one of the funniest people that I know. He leaves me some of the strangest messages on my answering machine. I got one last night that I found hilarious. I thought I'd try out this whole audio blogging thing so you all could enjoy the comedic genius that is my father. So enjoy!
I love you dad!!

this is an audio post - click to play

Have fun trying to figure out what he is saying first, then read the transcript! Thanks for the idea Shannon!

07/06/2009 audio link broken. Here is the transcript:

"Answer the phone. [pause] Can't you here it? [pause] Shor I hear it, but I'm no where near it. [pause] Call me sometime. [pause] I'm not made of money, you know. [pause] Good-bye."

Cool! Your dad sounds neat!

Glad you posted - I thought maybe work had become too much for ya! :)

Looks like you're gonna need to turn on your word verification ...

I'll agree with the Pink Lady. The pauses between the sentences made the difference for me!

That man is out of control! I also enjoy the phrase "Sure I hear it but I'm nowhere near it." I'm going to have to try using it in regular conversation some time.

That's some funny, funny shit! I was so confused the first time I listened, but after two or three times, and gathering the office 'round to listen it, I think it's all been cleared up.

Pink Lady, he probably was waiting for a response, he thinks I screen his calls. But then again, he talks like that normally too.

Indiaynke, my dad is a complex man.
I hate word verification. It is simple enough to just delete the spam so that my visitors don't have the hassle of that crazy thing.

Dr. Who, he has great comedic timing.

The Doc, how astute; my dad is often out of control. He also likes to rhyme.

Shannon, I guess I should have offered a transcript.

Wow Syl, you are sure getting a lot of Doctors reading your site. Enjoyed you Dad's message, put some funky beats behind that and you could have a hit.

DrMax, I was noticing that today too.
That is a good idea. SSB has a mini studio in the basement. I should have him mix something up.

Indiaiynke, my email address in the sidebar.

Rae Ann, I have that drilled into my head. I've been hearing it for 33 years!

What a cool guy!
Glad you added the transcript, I couldn't get the first part of the message.

Eh, Indiaiynke, I don't think that a lot of people look at my sidebar unless I specifically tell them to.

Maria, I told my dad that his message was soon to become a cult classic. I think he thought I was joking.

Sierrabella, my dad is cool for the most part, but is a very complex man that can be very difficult if not impossible at times to deal with.
