Chris (my son): I hope Kerry wins.
Me: He might not. It's going to be a squeaker.
Chris: I just heard a guy on TV use that word.
Me: Yeah, I've never called anything "a squeaker" before. What's wrong with me? Everyone's calling it "a squeaker" so now I'm saying "squeaker" too.
Guy on the phone: Yes, I'm [some name] calling from [some organization] to remind you to vote on Tuesday and to see if you have any questions you would like to ask.
Me: Yeah, I have a question.
Guy on the phone: Yes?
Me: How can I get people to stop calling me on the phone and nagging me about voting? It's getting really annoying.
Line I thought up after I hung up the phone that seemed like it might work: "You know if I get one more phone call, I'm going to vote for Bush."
