This is the end of a very long week. I had just been telling a neighbor how glad I was that this week was over because it was such a tough week to get through.
And then my cell phone rang. I saw a 215 area code and jumped a mile. The only time we ever get calls from the 215 area code is when our adoption agency is calling. And couldn’t we be getting That Call any time now? It was a quick ring and I missed it. Gregg told me to call back. I thought about it, but they called me back first.
Them: Hi! This is the Suchandsuch Inn, just calling to confirm your dinner reservation for tomorrow night.
Me: What? Really? Ummm…No. You really have the wrong phone number.
And so we hung up and the poor woman, who I’m sure now has to figure out how to confirm a large dinner party for tomorrow night with no phone number (been there, done that, not fun) has no idea that she left me with my heart in my stomach for the rest of the evening.
I hope it was just a warm-up for another 215 call that is coming soon. I got a fortune cookie tonight that reads “There are many unexpected and thrilling surprises in store for you!” It took everything I had not to ask the waiter what the success rate was for their fortune cookies.
