Maybe somebody stuck it on the ceiling?

A creative relative recently redid the family’s answering machine message. The new message is the typical ” Hello, you’ve reached the ______ Family. We can’t reach the phone right now….” except it features the entire family singing the message. I was grinning so much after I heard the message that when I hung up the phone, my kids demanded an explanation.

I sang the message to demonstrate what I’d heard. The four year old listened gravely, then said with some concern, “But WHY can’t they reach the phone? Is it too high?”
