This seems like the obvious answer but maybe I'm misunderstanding the

exten => s,1,Dial(SIP/alice,20)
 same =>   n,Playback(myannouncement)
 same =>   n,NoOP(Whatever else you want to do goes here)

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher
a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts,
build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders,
cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure,
program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.
Specialization is for insects.
