I’ve been meaning to share with you all, just who the man is on the right corner of the blog holding the poster that says, “CONGRATS Rick & Melisa”. His name is George Cauthen and he lives in Louisiana. I was first introduced to George by my crazy, fun-loving, friend Hannah (or as I like to call her, banana hammock).
The first time I listened to George on speaker phone, I was hooked, and would call everyday to hear him read the CHRISTUS Schumpert hospital cafeteria menu. I know…you’re thinking, “What? and Why?” Just give him a call and you will see: 318-681-4564. He always starts the message with, “Good Morning, thank you for calling Schumpert Menu Line”…and some sort of inspirational message…followed by the menu for the day.
Sometimes the menu of the day is the best part because of his strong accent and pronunciation of the words. For example, today the words I giggled at were: green bean almondine and creamy baby lima beans. Typing the words and reading them does not give him justice. You just need to call for yourself.
Just in case you want to know more about George, you can become a fan of his on facebook or just read the article about him here. He is quite the popular person. If you ever need a pick-me-up in the middle of the day, just save his number in your phone. I save it under the name, “Inspiration Station”. I promise, it’ll make you smile. Unless, the other lady leaves the message for the day and she’s a bore…or unless you’re my mom who doesn’t find it funny at all.
Now go call already, will ya!?
