Random Violin

Very Formally Yours

I have a friend who always answers her phone in the same outmoded form - "The (insert surname here) residence". Ignore the fact that she was only married to the guy whose surname she bears for a little over three years, and they've been divorced now for the last 26 years - that's how she sees herself and that's fine. But it makes me laugh when she answers her mobile phone in exactly the same way regardless of where she is when it actually rings. Habit, she says.
