A call just arrived on my cellphone. Good timing, as I was on my way out and probably wouldn’t have picked it up had I been in the car.

“Hello Aunt Vicky!”
“Uh, hi…?”
“Is this Vicky?”
“Uh, yeah…?”
“It’s Amy! Wow, you sound totally different on the phone!”
“Yeah, Amy!”
“Oh, um, hi. So I don’t think you have the right number.”
“This isn’t Aunt Vicky?”
“Well, my name is Vicky and I am an aunt, but I’m not your Aunt Vicky.”
“Wow, weird.”
“Yeah, weird. Where’d you get this number?”
“My aunt wrote down her office number for me. She must’ve written it down wrong.”
“Yup, she must’ve. I mean, I’m in my office now but this isn’t my office number. It’s my cell.”
“Yeah, weird. Well, thanks for calling. Good luck finding your aunt.”

That was just bizarre.
