    Call me when you’re driving home.

  • More of a statement than a question but not what we’re looking for. Close, though. Try again.

    The question she asked her husband was “Where are you?” because she was calling him on his cell phone! And you wouldn’t have done that 20 or 30 years ago because you didn’t have a cell phone back then.

    How about – “Can you believe what President Bush Junior said today, ‘Is your children learning?’ Oh can you pick up some of those Iowa chops on a stick while you’re at the store? And, could you call me when you’re driving down the street, as I have company that will need to leave via the back door.”

  • That’s exactly right, John! “Where are you.” is the exact answer we were looking for, and for the very reason you described.

    You’re today’s winner!!!
