Voicemail- How To Leave A Message

I just broke one of my cardinal rules for leaving a message on voicemail. I babbled, rambled and upon my realization that I was rambling and babbling tried to correct my mistake, but probably just compounded it.

In the course of the business day I may make anywhere from 15-50 calls, so if I am not careful I begin to sound like I am reading from a script. To me that is not any better than babbling and rambling.

Is it just me or does Babbling and Rambling sound like it could be the title of something. Perhaps that will be the title of my first book, or if I ever become a syndicated columnist that could be the title of my column. Or maybe when they make a movie about my life it could work as the title of the movie.

I should add that I am not sure that I want anyone to make a movie about my life. It would be so odd, so strange, not to mention that I am not sure who I would want to play me. Sometimes I see Bruce Willis or John Travolta. If I could pick anyone it might be Humphrey Bogart, but then again I am not sure if any of them would be any sort of fit.

With my luck it would probably end up being Curtis Armstrong. Maybe I’ll ask the Shmata Queen to weigh in on this and we’ll see what she has to say about it.

And there you have it, I am Babbling and Rambling again. The point of this post was to chastise myself for leaving a lame message. How can I expect anyone to return my call if I leave something so silly, so foolish and so uninteresting.

Oh the shame of it all.

    No, you’re confusing him with Richard Dawson. 😉

    Why? Because he is dead?

    I know the perfect actor to play you….Marty Feldman.
