      ...(beep).  “Hi, my name is Cathy.  I saw your ad and would like to meet you.  Please call me at 555-3248.”

 

     ...(beep).  “Hi, this is Cathy.  I’m sorry I missed your call.  I still want to meet you.  Call me!  555-3248.”

 

     ...(beep).  “Rich, this is Cathy.  The Blue Mug Coffee House sounds fine.  I’ll see you at 8.  I’ll be wearing a red shirt and jeans.”

 

     ...(beep).  “This is Cathy.  I guess we missed each other at the coffee house.  Do you want to try again?  Call me.”

 

     ...(beep).  “I can’t believe this is happening!  Do you or don’t you want to meet me?  I can’t believe we’re having such a hard time getting together!”

 

     ...(beep).  “Thank you so much for the flowers.  They’re beautiful!  I just think it’s funny that we’ve had a fight and you’re sending me flowers to make up and we’ve never met.”

 

     ...(beep).  “The concert is a wonderful idea but, I’d rather you pick me up instead of our trying to meet.  We’d probably miss each other again.”

 

     ...(beep).  “This isn’t working out, is it? Well, Rich, you’re probably a very nice guy and I appreciate your offering me the concert ticket but I really can’t go on having an aim-and-miss relationship with a guy I’ve never actually met. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’ve decided to go back to my husband and I wish you all the best. ‘Bye.”
