Window Dressing

 (Toronto Queen St. West: February 2010)  me: This gmail chat has voice chat you want to try it?
  It's like a phone fercrissakes...we
  are mixing up all the communication tools and think we're reinventing the wheel.
 Sarah: I don't think I have a mic on this computer.
 me: Oh.
6:16 PM Oh well.
  Let me try and see what happens at your end...oh weird. It's ringing like a phone.
  Except, of course, you can't pick up because you can't hear
  I'll end the voice attempt...
  Funny as hell.
6:17 PM Sarah: Yup can't hear.
 me: Oh well. Maybe I'll call you.
