March 9 05

Every time i answer the phone any time past 9pm, i get one of two reactions from the caller:

A) “OMG, did i wake you? I’m so sorry!” or
B) “You sound sick. Is everything okay?”

Every. single. time.
i don’t know what it is. At night i tend to get a little “stuffy” and congested, so maybe i tend to sound more nasal and “sick” and maybe i just sound sleepy.

Last night, when the phone rang at 10:30ish, i was NOT asleep. i was curled up in my bed, with my all-time favorite movie “Almost Famous” playing in the background while i read my new book, “Can You Keep a Secret?” (which, even though i’m only 60 pages in, i’m really enjoying), and drinking hot chocolate.

But, it still didn’t stop the caller from trying to convince me that i was sleeping.

  1. See what you think of this: My MIL can call at say, 8 or 8:30 PM and the first thing out of her mouth is, “Did I wake you?”
    Or when she calls at ten AM on Saturday, “DId I wake you?”
    Uh, no, I have two children, do you think I EVER get to sleep past seven?
    Finally I told her we don’t go to bed before ten at night. Didn’t matter, she still asks if we are asleep when she calls, even at SIX AT NIGHT!!
