“Yellloh!”

“Hi, this is Fran calling from Marlow’s Carpet Cleaning, where we get it squeaky clean. May please speak to… Mr…. God. Um, do we have that name right? Perhaps there’s a misspelling in our database.”

“No, you got that right. That’s me.”

“Um, yes, well…”

“You have a special available for just two weeks, I understand.”

“Um yes, we …”

“That’s great. I know this sale will really help you to pay off that credit card debt.”

“Um, but I…”

“So I’ll tell you what. I have an extensive white carpet that needs cleaning. Get’s a lot of traffic. But here’s the thing, Fran, may I call you Fran?”

“Yes… Yes I suppose you can, Mr… God.”

“Yeah well, lately, our back hallway has been getting a lot of traffic. We seem to have a lot of… well, tar stains and even regular vacuuming isn’t doing a thing. Do you have something for that?”

“Yeees… Well. We do have a special intensive clean. Um, it comes with a guarantee… And the technicians that apply the… special stain remover go on a course ‘specially.”

“A special course you say…”

“Um. Yes… After our cleaners have taken the course they get a special status as, well it sounds a little silly now that think about it… They get called “Super Sudsers.””

“Ha! That’s great. Ha! I should rename some of my employees. Give ’em catchy titles. It might help. They’re all kinda tired out. I’m considering a reorg. Not quite sure yet though. It’s tough.”

“Yes. Um. Well. Mr… Mr God, um. Well when would you like the cleaners to arrive for your… white carpet and … um… special stains.”

“Well Fran, you’ll be sending the Special Sudsers as well? Ha! I really get a kick outta that one Fran. Gotta tell your boss Bill. Like it. It’s creative. I could use a man like him up here.”

“OK. Well then, um. To what address should I send the crew…”

“Don’t worry about, they’re already on their way… Have a great day Franny. You’ll be hearing from me again soon.”

“Wait! … Hello? Helllooo?”
