Manny has set up his home office in his closet. He has no need for a desk since the only business he conducts is on the phone. So he sits on a fan that is laid on its side and uses whatever prop as a phone and has very expressive conversations.
Tonight at dinner, he pulled a huge wad of bread out of his mouth and was about to chew it some more, but before he could put it back in his mouth, it started ringing. So, of course, he put it to his ear and said, "ha?" And thus began the business deal. When he's on the phone, I try to be really respectful and not interrupt, but this time, Sam and I could not contain ourselves. And Manny laughed pretty hard too. The person on the other end of the bread wad had either already hung up or else had a good sense of humor because Manny didn't seem disturbed in the slightest.
