Cute Ways to Wake Someone Up Over the Phone

by Lucie Westminster

The act of waking up in the morning isn't something many people enjoy. However, waking up to a cute or humorous phone call may change a person's opinion and start her day off right. Humor, for example, helps improve an individual's outlook, according to Nando Pelusi, Ph.D., in the "Psychology Today" article "How to Cultivate Humor." Therefore, give someone a special morning wake-up call that will start her day off on a positive note and hopefully improve her outlook for the rest of the day.

Playing a Song

Play a song when your lucky someone answers the phone. Choose one that will put a smile on his face and has an upbeat, invigorating feel like Pharrell Williams' "Happy" or Alex Day's "Good Morning Sunshine." If you don't want to start the day with a bright and cheery song, choose his favorite tune or one that has a special meaning for the two of you to ensure he'll know right away who is providing his cute wake-up call. If you are musically inclined, try your hand at singing or playing the tune yourself. You don't need to be a Grammy-caliber singer to cutely wake up your friend with a song; he'll appreciate the gesture even if you struggle to hit all the notes. Keep the volume of your song at a lower level since he'll just be waking up and will need time to adjust to your chosen tune.

Making an Impression

Try your hand at a few impressions to wish your special person a good morning. Choose a phrase from her favorite movie and mimic the actor's voice from the movie. For a romantic feel, choose your favorite line from "The Princess Bride" and say it in your best Westley or Buttercup voice. If humor is more your style, wake your friend up with your best Daffy Duck or Speedy Gonzales voice.

Joking Around

Start the morning off with a joke imbedded in your wake-up call. Try out your best knock-knock joke or any short joke since she'll just be waking up. No matter which type of joke you choose, keep the content lighthearted because you don't want her first thought in the morning to be one of worry or fear. No matter how funny you may be, waking someone up before her body is ready is no joke. Be aware of the recipient's general wake-up time because the last thing you want to do is disturb your friend or family member's biological clock and set her up for a day of feeling tired and draggy because of your call.

Using Multiple Languages

Impress your friend with your Spanish skills and wake him up by saying, "Buenos dias, amigo!" Use any foreign language you are familiar with or brush up on a few ways to wish your friend a good morning in his native language. For a humorous touch, be creative and wish your avid "Star Trek" fan good morning in your best attempt at Klingon.
