Last Sunday, after a very wet day at church, we arrived home. I was sitting on the bed nursing Selena when we heard some talking nearby. Very nearby, in fact. It sounded like someone was in the room with us!
Mr. S and I looked at each other frowningly. I continued to feed the baby while he looked out the window. Was someone outside on this wet day?
I came up with the bright idea that our baby monitor might be picking up a phone conversation. Mr S kept putting his ear to the monitor, squinting in concentration. Nothing. The phone was cradled on its hook, and both of our cell phones were downstairs.
I think we were both starting to get the heebie jeebies when the unthinkable happened.
We heard the voice calling Mr. S's name ... once, again ... and again.
For those of you who know me, you know how big my eyes can get when I am frightened. Visions of God calling Samuel out loud in the night flashed through my head. I also started to think about every scary movie I had ever watched!
I could tell Mr. S was scared too. I clutched my precious baby closer.
"I will protect you no matter what, darling!"
Then I realized suddenly and thankfully what it was.
"BLUE TOOTH***!" I blurted.
Mr. S's hand flew to his pocket and pulled out the offending piece of plastic. "Hello?" he said.
"Hello?" the voice said.
Sigh of relief. Modern technology. Clearly, too advanced for us!
In a completely unrelated stream of thought, I just want to thank God for the wonderful weather He has given us. I plan to spend time outside just basking in it. Thank you, Lord. I can't think of a better day. Beautiful weather, and time with my husband and daughter.
*** (Edit) I have been asked to define a Bluetooth.
I should have done so before, because before my hubby got one -- I didn't know what it was either.
It looks like this ...
(I got this pic from Wikipedia)
A Bluetooth is basically a wireless device ... in our case, it connects to my husbands cell phone and allows him to talk hands - free. He wears it on his ear.
