The other day, the phone rang, I answered it in my customary manner, and scarlettj9 squealed that she’d lost her house key. I said “to the new place?”, and she wailed “Yes!” I pointed out that I’ve never even been to the new place and certainly don’t have a key for it.

There was a bit of a pause right about there.

Then the caller saw fit to identify herself. Turns out it wasn’t really scarlettj9, but a neighbor of mine. The storel of the morey? Identify yourself when you call me, and don’t be insulted because I can’t recognize voices over the phone. Or in person. Or at all. Unless you’re Penn Jillette, Patrick Stewart, or James Earl Jones.
