I called Lauren from work. I dialed our new home number from my desk phone.
“Hello.” Lauren answered.
It did not sound like her, but she is getting a cold.
“Lauren?” I asked.
“Yes.” She said in a way that was unfamiliar to me.
“Me who?” She responded.
“It’s…” I paused. “…me?”
I grabbed my cell phone and flipped through the address book to look up my own phone number.
“Is this Lauren?” I asked thinking Lauren was playing a joke.
I looked at the number on the cell phone and the number that appeared on my desk phone’s display. The cell phone read 555-555-4655. The display on my desk read 555-555-6455. I flipped two numbers.
“Who is this?” Lauren asked.
“This is ummm..” I was now questioning who I was. “This is, who I thought, was your husband.”
“I am sorry I dialed the wrong number and I am just shocked that a Lauren answered the phone.”
"Well not only do you have the wrong number but you have the wrong Lauren."
