you think you know...

Well that was bizarre.

*phone rings*
"Hi. How are you?"
"I'm good, how are you?" i say, because we are all so well-programmed, and i think first that it sounds like my grandmother and then like Barbara Hamlin (a woman from church) and i wonder if she thinks i'm my mother (everyone says we sound just like each other, especially on the phone).
"Fine, thanks."
"Is this Kansas?"
"What?" because i didn't quite catch what she said.
"Is this Kansas?"
"Um, no."
"Oh, I must have dialed the wrong number. I'm sorry."
"That's okay."
And we hang up.

Kansas consists of the following area codes: 316, 620, 785, 913.
My area code is 781.
