Phone tucked into my shoulder, conference call in my ear.
Listening, understanding, nodding my head to a computer screen.
Sounds of playing little boy and barking dogs.
Traffic going down the road, where do they all go anyway?
Phone on mute, little man with questions, dogs telling tales in the yard.
Listening, taking some notes, wondering when we'll get to the point.
Sounds of the birds, cows and horses.
Traffic going across the floor, another car chase my little man?
Phone battery starting to weaken, I hear the warning beeps.
Listening and wondering when I'll be able to sneak a handset change.
Sounds of people on the call - paper, pens, cars and families.
Traffic going across my screen - games, emails, messages and chats.
