d*i*r*t*y*t*a*l*k

T called me this morning and after I answered the phone he put me on speaker. He let the other people in the room know he had to make sure I was going to answer the phone appropriately before the speaker phone portion of the conversation could begin. I am reminded why and thought I would relay the conversation that happened several years ago that resulted in this policy.

***Phone Rings at the house. I look at caller id and see that the number is 214-9??-blah, blah, blah, blah. It's T.

Me: Hey there hot stuff. I'd think I'd like to ......(I am omitting this part since this is part of the family friendly blogroll. But let's just say I was feeling a bit saucy and amorous toward my hubby.)

Caller: Robin?

Me: Umm...(at this point I look at the caller id to realize it is indeed NOT my hubby, but a number of similar beginnings.) Yes?

Caller: This is Ed. (Senior Pastor of our church and T's boss.) What did you just say?

Me: (Color has completely drained from my face.) Just romancing my husband like you talked about last Sunday, sir. Can I get him for you?

Caller: Yes. (Laughing)

Robin.

NO. WAY.

Robin.

ROBIN!

I am blushing for you.

Shelley said...

That is the funniest thing I've heard all day. No . . . ALL WEEK!

theresa said...

R, you are a trip! I'm glad FC got a new policy because of you...ha, ha!

the "other" Sarah said...

Oh my goodness, I am blushing for you. I can't imagine the embarrassment. But I am very impressed with your quite-witted response!

Barb said...

Oh my gosh. I would have just very gently put the phone down and when he called back, I'd have said, "No, I didn't just receive a call from anyone. Are you sure you dialed the right number?"

I'm surprised your hubby still puts you on the speaker phone at all!

Addie said...

Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha! OH MY GOODNESS ROBIN!!!! That is the funniest thing. You go girl!

Seriously, I think I'll be laughing at that one off and on for the entire day!

Jeff Dowdle said...

Funniest thing I read all day, made me laugh out loud.

I have the same rule with Shelley. I also have had to watch my instant messager when I have someone looking at my screen, never know what she might write.

Susie said...

Oh my goodness. That is hilarious. The boss and also your pastor all in one. I would have died. Skip could not believe it when I read it aloud to him. So funny girl.

Wendy said...

That is hilarious. You are quick. I probably would have been speechless.

Kristie Vinson said...

I am still laughing. It made me think of the time you used another word with Ed...if you remember? Gosh, had to laugh again!

Melissa said...

I think I would've been too embarrassed to show up at church ever again!

Thanks for the laugh, you poor thing!

My mouth is STILL open wide! I am literally gasping out loud, with my hand clenched over my mouth, and my eyes bugging out of my head. You didn't. You really didn't.

Please tell me you didn't?

How, oh how can you face Ed now?

I'd die.

Dead.

Do you see how shocked I am?

Wow.

Blessed Beyond Measure said...

I'm with Barb. I'd lie. Pretend it never happened, avoid him at all costs for quite awhile, and when we did see each other and he gave me that look that said, you so know it was me and you on the phone, I'd look completely clueless. Clueless enough at least he'd wonder if he'd imagined it. Or I'd just stand there and want to die.

Amanda said...

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am laughing. I would love to know what T said after you told him what you did.

Laura said...

So funny! I don't even know what I'd do - I defintely wouldn't have been as quick a thinker as you!

Robin said...

I should probably mention that I did realize quickly that T wasn't home and had to tell Ed that he could be reached on his cell. But I was a little shook up as it were. Thought I would clarify, since that last part probably didn't make sense.

Paula said...

F U N N Y Stuff!I know you wanted to put your head in the sand at the time. A least you can laugh about it now. Funny!!!!

Shalee said...

That is hilarious Robin!

Did you sit on the BACK row for the following couple of weeks?

HolyMama! said...

oh wow. you are saucy!

Amanda said...

Do all of your blog readers UNDERSTAND that you talked dirty to the pastor of the one of the LARGEST churches in the USA??????

I just had to come back and see responses. This still has me laughing! I think I would have rather it been Ed, than O.G.!!!!
Can you imagine?!

melissa said...

that is so funny. i think i would have had to change churches.

Kelli said...

a-hahahahahahahahahahaha. What a *great first time being here* - nice to meet ya!

Ok, I'm not from Texas, I've never been to this church, but I grew up in another "megachurch" under Jack Hayford, for 20-odd years. I can't. even. imagine.

Oh. my. goodness.

I'm feeling for ya!

Oh my gosh :) Too, too, too, too funny!

Robin said...

Amanda, I've known Owen since I was 11. And knowing him and Bev? Yes, way more embarrassing.

Okay, so I wrote a comment and accidentally deleted it. It's early and I haven't had my coffee.

Anyway - as I was saying....

OH. MY. GOODNESS!!!!

I just want to know what it was like the first time you had to be around Ed. I would not have been able to make eye contact.

And I'm totally with Amanda. Thank the LORD it was not Owen. YIKES! Talk about MORTIFYING!!!

Blessed Assurances said...

Wow, since i used to attend Fellowship-I think this is AWESOME. Ed will probably be laughing for weeks. LOL!

Amanda said...

That's right! I forgot you have known Owen and Bev so long. That would have been HORRIBLE! Sorry to CHAT in your comment section. I think I have told your story at least 100 times today. Anyone that I know at FC or that I know used to go to FC has now been directed to your blog!! SO FUNNY! This has GOT to be your most embarrasing moment. Mine is with Randy Draper's brother's father in law. I will have to explain some day!

JenMom said...

Hilarious. I can totally relate because my husband is a surgeon & is only available by pager during the day...and lots of times he is either calling me back on speaker phone from the Operating Room or will have a nurse return my calls. In the early days, I had a couple of minor slip ups where I answered the phone from a returned page with "Hiya, Tiger!" "Hey, BabyDoll" or some other crazy pet name...still can't hold a candle to your story!

janice said...

laughin out loud. i am conflicted though - I am feeling so bad for you - but soooo enjoyed the laugh!! thanks for sharing :) i mean really - it makes a great post - and that is ALL that really matters!!

Jen said...

That is hilarious.....hope the color is back in your face....mine would never come back. Loved this story

Melanie said...

So did you change your membership, enter into witness protection and move to the Azores? :>)))

Theresa said...

ROFLOL -- Whoops!

Leslie said...

I am so glad you lived to tell us this. I'd have died on the spot.

Too funny.

Lauren said...

Oh Robin, my husband and I both laughed out loud on this one. Me twice, when I read it and then again when I read it to him. You sure are quick on your feet with your answers.

Chappyswife said...

You are so brave for reliving this. So very FUNNY!

Marie said...

Oh, my STARS! That is one of the funniest things I have ever read.

I bet you make sure you pay attention to the sermon each week!!

Thanks for sharing!

How incredibly funny! I'd hide under my shell and probably change churches. LOL! (Got here from another blog.)
