we got new phones at work – the kind that has one basestation and wireless satellite handsets. dawn is kickin’ it in philly with some clients today so aaron and i set up the new phones. out of love for our country (but clearly not for our ears) we set all of the handsets’ ringtones to ‘the star spangled banner’. unfortunately, they don’t ring in unison. it’s just like in real life where one person is always a little late. you know, like:

…by the dawn’s early light (-ight)
what so prou(-ou-)dly we hai(hai-)led
at the twilight’s (ssss) last (ssss) gleaming (-ng)…

you get the idea.
