BAXIL: (ASIDE) I am the only person in the office, and even though it's a Friday evening and we don't publish tomorrow, it's not nearly late enough at night for me to blow off the call under the "everyone's gone home" excuse.
*BAXIL grabs the phone*
BAXIL: Auburn Journal newsroom. Tad speaking.
CALLER: (In a frail, old womanly voice) Yes, what is the date?
BAXIL: (caught off guard) Um ... uh. Friday, April 29.
CALLER: Thank you very much. (*hangs up*)
