You're probably friends with your phone book. And the yellow pages are your favorite color. But yellow is not the color of courage. And I always look at the phone book with a jaundiced eye.
I'll just get comfortable on the couch here, and admit that I am not alone in this. I know a few folks that aren't crazy for business calls either. And that is what the big fat book is all about! Doctors, lawyers, leaky pipes, and broken windows. Car repairs, power outages, billing errors, tax questions. . . . Your friends are already in your cell phone. A phone book is not about friends.
To lighten things up I make pretty new ones, and even recycled this one from last year's edition.
A pretty phone book cover is the equivalent of looking away from a doctor's needle. Or taking a deep breath before calling the plumber. Since it has to be readily available, it may as well look good! (And wait! I just remembered all those PIZZA places listed in there!)
I like to spread out in the safe zone to take care of business. For me, that's the kitchen table all surrounded by cozy stuff.
A friendly platter can make a good writing surface. And it's good to look at while you're listening to loud musak piped into your ear and wasting good blogging time. (sigh) . . .
It's a small thing. But I wrestle with the pages enough times in a year to make it worth my while. Anyway, I was able to put off that phone call that much longer! ;) Now, lets look in the P's. . . .
I hope your weekend is way more fun!
