Today's writing prompt: The Phone Rang with a Dah-Dit-Dit-Dit

Remember when phones looked like this? I loved the sound of a rotary phone dialing. Click...brrrrrrrr....

Anyway—regardless of what kind of phone you have, use this writing prompt as a jumping off point for a poem, song, or short story. Take it literally (for example, set it in a time period where this type of phone existed) or not. The point is just to get writing!
