Whoops, my bad. Should I apologize for a bad voicemail?

I only have 1 week of telephone marketing under my belt, but I am a quick study and I have total confidence in my companies service and product.
The other day while calling a 'warm' lead, of all things, I think my mind took off to places unknown.

I knew what to say to the prospect and, I was ready.
Unfortunately, I was immediately diverted to voice-mail.
For the life of me, I can't remember a word of what I said.
My worst fear is that I rambled ... since I can't get a do-over, do I mention anything about the voice-mail, should I try to cover-up with an apology, or just drop it and hope the client doesn't think I'm a total dip-wad? - by Ima Caller
When you lay an egg, step back and admire it.

Move on. With only one week under your belt, if you have the habit of fettering on every mistake you make, or think you make, you'll never get anywhere. - by Gary A Boye
