It had been going on for almost a year.  My desktop telephone was dicky; none of the numbers on the right-hand side of the dial pad worked, so I couldn’t phone anyone who had a 3, 6 or 9 in their number.  This presented a bit of bother when my cellphone battery was flat.  I kept making mental notes to go to Telkom and get a replacement …

My child took it upon herself to fix the matter and proudly presented me with a gift-wrapped package last week; she’d been out spending her pocket money and had decided to buy her mother a gift.

My new phone has allowed me to catch up with all my 3-6-9 friends, but I feel really absurd and can only hope that nobody ever catches a glimpse of me through my office window …

  1. Bwahahaahhaa!! Brilliant

    Creative and quite funny! I’m formulating tons of “chip” puns here!

    I’m dipping into the creative juices here. But alas, today the brain seems fried!

  2. I was going to do “chip off the old block” but I see that it’s already used. So how about…

    A chip in the ear is worth two on the waist.
    From her chips to your lips.
    Rather a chip in the ear than a chip on the shoulder.

    ? 🙂

  3. Lucky you! That girl is something else! – love her to bits and I don’t even know her… Can’t imagine those chips are in any danger of being eaten – they don’t look anywhere near as appetizing as the sweet potato ones you pictured the other day. 😉
