☆ message メッセージ
As a noun, the word message means a piece of information from you to someone, or from them to you, when you cannot speak to them directly. For example, when you call someone and get their answering machine, “Please leave me a message and I’ll get back to you.”
These days, I get a lot of advertising calls – they all want to sell me cheaper electricity and gas for my home. It’s so annoying, that these days I never answer my phone unless I know the number. If the caller doesn’t leave then I know it was a tele-marketer and I can block the caller!
