"This is Dinah Lance! Leave a number or text and I'll probably get back to you as soon as I'm done texting or talking to whoever I'm on the phone with right this very second."

Re: IC phone calls

Karla's voice sounded on the verge of tears. "Seven!" she wailed into the phone. "Seven! What's wrong with me, Dinah? Seven!"

Re: IC phone calls

"Seven what?" Dinah asked, sitting up from her studying on-set to blink at Karla's voice on the phone. "Seven camels? Seven explosions?" A pause, as she wondered if Karla had tried cooking again. "Seven years bad luck?"

Re: IC phone calls

"BABIES!" Karla howled. "After the dance--not prom--seven?!?"

She was prepared to say more, but a chorus of voices rose up. "Mama, who you talking to?" "Oh, can I talk on the phone, too?" "I bet it's Daddy." "I bet it's ma mere!" "What's that odd device?"

"Seven, Dinah!"

"HI AUNTIE DINAH!" "I want to talk to her!" "No, me!" "She loves me best!" "No sir! No sir! No sir!"

Re: IC phone calls

Dinah had to put the phone down for a second to giggle uncontrollably, get herself under control, then come back to say, "You didn't do anything! You're just speeeecial." She grinned into the phone. "Let me talk to them? Are there any from last year?"

Re: IC phone calls

"It's like you hate me," Karla sulked. "And don't think I didn't hear you laughing, either."

"All right you all, Auntie Dinah wants to talk to you." Ear-splitting yays and cheers went up. "We're going to stand in line and give each other a chance to have a nice, short conversation with Auntie. Anyone who pushes, grabs, kicks, or snatches has to go to the end of the line."

There, didn't that sound all parental?

"Jaenelle Mara is here again," Karla said, speaking back into the phone while the children figured out some kind of order amongst themselves. As she'd suspected, Rook and Della gravitated towards the back while there was a small fight between Dahlia, Nommy, Kayla, and Jaenelle over who got to go first. "No Emma Eleni, but that wasn't a surprise. Also..." Karla's voice dropped to a whisper. "More comments about my legs. Rook and Della both, as well as Jaenelle."

Re: IC phone calls

Dinah sobered a bit with that particular news, and said, "Got it. We need to talk that over and figure stuff out after they're gone. I do not like the odds on this now."

She sent a photo of herself as she was dressed up now to the phone, and said, "Ready for the kids! HI GUYS!"

Re: IC phone calls

Jaenelle Mara had won the right to go first based on the fact she outranked all the others. That had earned her a hair-pull from Bobina--who'd then got sent to the end of the line--but she's stubbornly clung to the first-place position. Plus, she was the only kid to have ever met this Dinah.

"Guess what, guess what!" she said over the phone as soon as Karla handed it to her. "I know you now, too! The notes worked!"

Re: IC phone calls

"Jaenelle!" Dinah squee'd, gleeful. "It's so good to hear you again, sweetie! And they did? You and Sean get to see each other? And his mom knows your mom now?"

Re: IC phone calls

"We do! He keeps saying he's gonna be my Consort when I grow up," Jaenelle replied, blushing a little. Her sisters in line snickered--and Nommy said "Eeew"--which meant Jaenelle had to pause to make a horrible face at all of them before she could properly answer Dinah's other question. "Yup! They're not as close as you and this Mommy are, but you guys are friends. I think they think they're weird, though."

Fun with pronouns!

Re: IC phone calls

"Sean is so flirty," Dinah sighed, rubbing her face and remembering. Then snickering as she heard other kids giggling and commenting. "But I know he'd be very very nice to you. He liked you lots." She grinned then said, "Wellll, your moms haven't known each other as long, and they live very far away. And everybody's weird to everybody." See, you just had to bend the pronouns to make them do what you wanted!

Re: IC phone calls

"We visited your house once and went to the amusement park!" Jaenelle added. "And we zoomed down the tallest roller coaster we could go on and it was really super fast and we had a lot of fun! And you came to visit us and Daddy took us all out for a ride on his spaceship and then Mommy introduced you to honey-pears and I gave Sean a pickleberry!"

Re: IC phone calls

Hooting, Dinah asked, "And how did he take that? Did he still want to be your Consort after he had that?"

Re: IC phone calls

"He was grumpy for a few minutes, but then he realized that he could give one to his Mommy and it was really funny. And I think she's bringing some home to give to his Aunt Helena. So it all worked out and he said likes me even more now!" Jaenelle said, laughing.

"All right, heart-breaker, tell Auntie Dinah good-bye," Karla said. "It's your sister's turn."

"I'm not ready to go yet!" Jaenelle pouted.

"Maybe not, but we're all taking turns. Now say good-bye." Oooh. She was good at this stern stuff. Maybe it was the lack of sleep.

"Bye, Aunt Dinah," Jaenelle said, sounding sulky. "I'll see you soon, maybe, okay?"

Re: IC phone calls

"You're so smart," Dinah said, laughing. "And you definitely will, Jaenelle Mara," she promised for her other self. "Love you!"

Re: IC phone calls

Kayla was the next to snatch up the phone. "Aunt Dinah! Aunt Dinah! It's me! It's me!"

Because the was helpful, yes.

"Tell Aunt Dinah your name, Kayla," Karla said. "She can't see you across the phone."

"It's Kayla!" she cheered. "I've been practicing my flying and stuff! Next time you come to visit, we can go flying lots and lots!"
