Devon: [phone is ringing] Just a second. [keeps playing video game] Just a second. [continues to play] JUST a second [dies on screen] MAN! [grabs phone] Hello? Hello? [looks at phone] One missed call. Ok. Cali. Whatever. [turns up stereo and goes back to playing game]
Cali: [while Devon is playing, SHE is the caller, disconnects AS he picks up phone, she is blow drying hair the entire time but shuts off to say:] Why won't he just ANSWER that thing. It's called shared minutes! [turns up stereo and blow dryer back on]
Devon: [decides to call but doesn't stop playing game] Answer. ComeOn. Answer! Jeez already. [disconnects as Cali answers phone]
Cali: [turns of dryer] Fine. [says loudly to phone] STOP CALLING ME! [goes to laptop] vidgameguy23: hey jerk. Why aren't you answering your phone?
Devon: [hearing IM alert and pulls laptop over] OH! It's YOU princesspea48: because you don't answer yours!
Cali: [laughing cynically] Nice answer vidgameguy23: whatever! Call! I can talk now! [picks back up her blow dryer]
Devon: [calls cell phone, Cali answers WITH dryer going] Hey!
Cali: [she can hear him fine] What?
Devon: [can't hear a THING] HEY!
Devon: Turn off that hair dryer, jeez what is your problem!
Cali: What? What did you just say to me? You are such a total toad, Devon. Just Text Me.
Devon: Just tell you? I can't hear you!
Cali: NO! Just TEXT ME!
Devon: You're telling me? Telling me what? [he hangs up in frustration]
Cali: [tosses phone on bed in frustration] Toad.
Mom: Devon! Cali! [waits for response in the midst of the noise] DEVON MICHAEL! CALI MARIE! [Devon and Cali turn of all sounds. Total quiet.]
Devon: [sticking head out of bedroom] Yeah Mom?
Cali: [stepping to doorway] What do you need Mom?
Mom: We're running late, Church -- let's go. Are the two of your ready to read the Bible texts for the service today?
Devon: I've been trying to ASK her that.
Cali: Devon won't even answer his phone.
Mom: [turning to go] Maybe you two could try face-to-face talking ... what a concept. Tends to work. Let's go.
