Eric: Hello, I’d like to speak with Ian Hassell.
(Ian’s mom gets Ian)
Ian: Who is this?
Eric: This is Eric Long, your best friend since we were in pre-school.
Ian: Oh, hi Eric.
After this semi-formal introduction, the two went on to discuss strategy for playing Star Wars on the Nintendo DS; Eric had the phone set to “speaker.” Apparently the call went on for an hour.
Note: these two third-graders see each other every day in class.
