Writer's Block: Leave a Message After the Beep

What is your answering machine away message? If you don't have one, you can make it up!


For years, my voicemail would greet you with, "Hey babe! Sorry I missed you! Leave me a message and I'll call you back." It was great. At least half of the messages would begin with a variation of "Hi...babe. Babe? Really?"

Then I started to seriously look for a job, and I thought it might be wise to have something a little more professional. Ever since then, my voicemail has been the standard "[Insert Name] is not available; please leave a message after the tone."

Much less fun.

But speaking of fun, my brother's voicemail message was recorded by Maurice LaMarche. That's right, kids; if you call my brother, you'll be greeted by The Brain. It's terribly exciting.
(Or it would be, if the message wasn't a bit garbled and difficult to hear.)
