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.
