Fourth Day of Christmas – Calling Birds – Or Calling Guys
My beloved is poking fun at me this morning. After all I know that despite twittering, facebooking, blogging and stuff the one thing I’m not great at is calling. I find it difficult to sustain telephone conversations. Was it growing up in the days of telephones on wires in a cold drafty hall, where people walked past and listened ? – or worse went to the ‘other phone’ and listened in!
These days despite my addiction to the iPhone I rarely use it to talk to anyone, signals are patchy out here in bow and arrow country.
My challenge to you today is: Call someone, perhaps someone put their number in your Christmas Card, is there someone you parted with on uncertain terms or just could do with a good catch up. Just report back with a comment; how did it go?
Today’s Russian Roulette Question: – but you might want to warm up with this game first – Who made the first ‘official’ mobile phone network call in the UK?
If you are new to this, a brief explanation. The #12DCP is a virtual Christmas party. A post a day will appear on the Grethica. You respond by way of comments. Each comment creates an entry into my prize draw, for a money can’t buy prize (because it’s mostly stuff that’s been given away by others). The Russian Roulette questions are quiz style questions, the comments you leave to those will be posted at the end of the 12 DCP. However the danger with a Russian roulette quiz is that if you answer a question wrong – all of your answers become null and void. The good news is though you have time to go back and post answers to previous days, right up to the end of the 12th day.
Enjoy – thanks to those that have taken part so far… keep up the good work
