<--- I stole this rubber duck from a really cute hotel in Wales about 20 years ago. That I am old enough to have done something 20 years ago and have memory of it and proof to photograph is downright frightening. I love this duck. It makes me laugh every time that I look at it which is every time I take a shower. Now you can laugh at it too, because there are prints of it in my etsy shop as well as other new prints. Go look!
I really hate this back to school time of year. Nine years ago when we bought our house, the numbers we got for our home number and my business line were the old numbers of the local elementary school. We got calls all day long for the school and even though no parents could find the new number for the school, I managed to and would give it to the callers so they'd stop calling me. I thought for sure the calls would stop. Well, they haven't. Over the years, the calls have gotten worse because now it's not just parents calling, it's bill collectors too. The school is in debt! The calls start about 7:30 in the morning and go all day. There are calls from parents wanting to move their kids to this school, people looking for jobs, and a landscaping company that is totally pissed its gravel was never paid for. I know this because they leave messages on our answering machine even though our message says to leave a message for the Woods Hotel, not the school district where Weeds is filmed.
I am not answering the phone and giving the correct number to the school because I'm no longer doing things that are a total waste of time or that people could do themselves if they typed google.com into their iPhones.
I am kind of tempted to answer the phone and give out the number to the neighbors next door. That might be good payback for the balls. Would that be considered a waste of time or not? Hmmm.
