answering the phone

my cell phone rang today--a call from Shi's number, one I don't often see on my phone. I said hello and heard, "LLLLLO MMMAAAMMAMAMAMA" followed by many more of the Audrey jibberjabbers that if translated to adultspeak, mean something like, "Gramma, I love you, I miss you, I want to come play at your house. Do you have any of those yummy gummy fruit snacks? Can I sit in that chair at the bar? Are you still drinking that yucky diet coke? And finally, did I hear that your tailless, black and white rocking cow is wearing its own brown and white cow Halloween costume? Really?" and then she ended with, 'bubye'.
