I just had a really odd/funny experience.
The phone rang, I answered and a husky voiced woman said, “Hi Mama-la, I’m just calling to tell you I’m going to sleep now.” I was a little taken aback when I heard this. One, because I have no children (and if I did, they wouldn’t sound like a smoker in her forties) and two, because I call MY mother every night and say those exact same words to her. The identical set of words, down to the Mama-la. I had a moment where I thought I might be caught in some bizarre parallel universe or that someone was playing an obscure joke on me. I shook those theories off and just accepted that I’m not the only one who calls her mom to say goodnight.
It’s just a little bit spooky. Cool, but spooky.
And you never called the woman back to describe the situation. I’m sure she and you would get a hearty laugh out of it.
I felt a little weird calling her back. I’m sure she felt funny enough calling the wrong number like that.
