I'm likely, during the period of time of 5:30pm and 7:30pm, to be trying to get the baby to sleep. I have called my telephone company (they're a full service, family company: La Cosa Nostra Telecommunications) to get a new telephone feature added.

The service? No, not Caller ID. We already have that. No, not Call Block. No, this is a much more active feature: Call Insurance. Any telephone calls received during this two hour period will be traced, and a car full of Mafia thugs will be sent to the caller's house to gently reason with the people who made the call. Tonight's callers got off light: only their fingers and their jaws were broken. This prevents both dialed calls and voice calls. Repeated callers receive the special "Dirtnap" service. Do I need to be more clear?

Have you considered an answering machine? Most people really wouldn't have any reason to suspect that this is a bad time to call, after all. (I try not to call parents of very small children after about 8:00, because I know that interferes with bed-time. Not that I have a personal stake in this, as I've never called you, but I'm just sayin'.)
