Sunsets, Pontoons, and Early Morning Phone Calls

Sunset season is almost ending (its not nearly as beautiful when you’re at work, or leaving work) so I’m trying to be outside in the daylight as much as possible. I go back to school on Tuesday and not sure how I feel about that….other than I know I need to buy my books! (oops).

I was responsible for driving the pontoon onto the trailer for the first time….I love the confidence my dad has in my boat driving abilities, but I was a much better driver in middle school when I couldn’t legally drive a car, so I spent all my time on the boat instead. Thankfully there were no major crashes.pontoon portage

Friday morning I woke up to my phone ringing at 5:55 am. I didn’t recognize the number but figured I should answer just in case….I assumed I’d figure out who it was based off the conversation. Wrong. It wasn’t quite the gif below….but it was close.

And then I remembered why I don’t answer phone calls from numbers I don’t recognize.

Do you always answer your phone? Or do you let it go to voicemail and then listen?


  1. If it’s from a number I recognize, I usually answer it. I say usually because if I’m in the middle of a conversation with someone else, that’s my top priority.

    I’ve been getting an awful lot of calls lately from local numbers that I don’t recognize. Thinking it was a friend calling me from work, I answered one. It was a robocall telling me I’d won a cruise to the Bahamas. Dislike. A lot. 😦

  2. Oh boy, a 5:55 phone call? Ouch. I typically do not answer unknown numbers. I figure if it’s important, they’ll leave a voice message. It seems like the times when I answer an unknown number, I always regret it. And it seems like unknown numbers rarely leave messages which leads me to believe that it’s not important.

    Nice work on driving the pontoon on the trailer! That would have intimidated me! I don’t like putting boats on lifts either…

  3. Oh my gosh, I don’t even answer my phone when I do recognize the number! People that know me well have just gotten used to it I think. If someone called me at 5:55 I’d probably go Liam Neeson in Taken on them.
