When someone is in enough pain from any non-life threatening ailment, where they can't sit comfortably in a chair. They keep wiggling and slurking...eventually settling in a position with a head tilted to the side...as if they are on the phone...
I pulled up a chair so my wife would play me in Madden 95(All-Madden vs. Jets). I looked-over at her at halftime and saw that due to her increasing abdominal pain, she was on the phone, so we had to quit.
