Smile A Good Laugh

Last year, my boyfriend, video gaming buddy, and best friend Kyle spent 3 months locked up in county jail for a probation violation (charge was dropped and he was released). He would call me every night and we would talk the full 15 minutes the phones allowed.
The cell block/pod they had him in was configured (according to his description) in such a way that the phones and the showers were fairly close to one another (important detail here).
One night, Kyle called me and we talked, as per usual, when our phone call was suddenly interrupted by LOUD (and very good) singing! I thought one of the inmates or even a CO turned on a radio or the TV and set the volume kinda high, so I politely asked Kyle if he'd ask whomever it was who turned on the radio to turn it down. Kyle replied that it wasn't the radio, to which I replied by asking him to ask the CO to turn the volume on the TV down. Kyle responded by telling me that I wasn't hearing a television, but another inmate in the shower, singing!
My response to Kyle after finding this out was that the guy was a really good singer and they need to make a jail version of "American Idol". Kyle replied by telling me to hold on, then loudly said to Shower Guy, "Hey, my girlfriend can hear you!" to which Shower Guy was quiet, along with all of the other inmates in the pod.
Shower Guy stepped out, then while passing Kyle in the pod, he stopped to apologize to him, to which Kyle replied, "my girlfriend thinks you should go try out for American Idol". Couldn't hear what Shower Guy said back to Kyle, only what Kyle said to Shower Guy.
This whole thing has taught me that it's not always stressful to get a phone call from an incarcerated loved one - sometimes, it can be funny for both of you!

Sounds like my husband. Someone heard him singing in the shower and they got him into prison band. He loved it, and so did the other inmates.

My man called me last night. A few mins in to the 2nd call he's like "Baby, I gotta go...they are locking us down now (shift change)...hold up...oh damn, did they just shut the gate on me!? Well I'll just carry on talking to you then!" Haha! Guess he got locked OUT instead then!

My husband was talking to me last night and all of a sudden a guy chimes in to say "hey is that your wife" my husband says "yes" and the guy says " Hey this is big Mike I don't appreciate all those letters your husband be receiving" him and my husband burst out laughing. My husband said he always comments on how much mail my hubby gets (everyday) and then my husband said big Mike weighed maybe 135lbs. Lmao So this week I'm sending two letters everyday some cards to lol
