Today we played with a toy phone. I don't think Scarlett quite got it. I tried to explain to her that while answering a phone there is usually a lot less banging involved. There is also a lot less annoying music - unless, of course, you're on hold with an insurance company. In that case I think I'd take "The Buttons on the Phone Go Beep, Beep, Beep" over their instrumental version of "That's What Friends Are For" on repeat for eternity. I also tried to convey to Scarlett that despite how dull the conversation gets it is completely inappropriate to throw one's self back 007 style and drop the phone - despite how much you may want to.
