How often in your life can you call someone at 3:00am in the morning acting like a moron and have the people on the other end of the phone be happy to hear from you??
Trevor was born late at night, I had the job of calling the family. When I placed the call to my sister-in-law Connie, it was early in the damn morning and her husband (whom I hadnt met yet) answered.
Me: "Oh, hi is Connie home?"
Gus: "Is Connie home? Yes, she is asleep"
Me: "Oh, um, can I talk to her?"
Gus: "Do you know what time it is?"
Me: "Not really, its 3:00am"
Gus: "She is asleep."
Me: "Okay, can I leave her a message?"
Gus: "Who is this??"
Me: "Just tell her that Lee called and her sister had a baby boy"
Gus: "A BOY! Oh thats great Conradulations, wait a second I'll go get her" (Major change in voice and attitude)
I apologized for to Connie for the lateness of the call and to Gus. It was just a combination of being a giddy new father and my inner jerk humor bubbling up.
