About once a day, I call my husband and put him on speaker phone just to say hello and so that Put Pie can talk to him too. A recent conversation went a little like this…
Ring, ring, ring…
Unknown Papi: Hello?
Unknown Mami: Hey, it’s me.
Unknown Papi: (with a mischievous smile in his voice) Me, who?
Unknown Mami: Haha…real funny. What’s up?
Unknown Papi: Nothing.
Unknown Mami: You wanna talk to your daughter?
Unknown Papi: Huh?
Unknown Mami: Put Pie, say hello to your Papi.
Put Pie: (very loudly) Hi Papi!
Unknown Papi: What?
Unknown Mami: Put Pie, say it again Papi didn’t hear you.
Put Pie: (even louder) Hi Papi!
Unknown Papi: (confused) Who is this?
Unknown Mami: Oh, come on! It’s not funny anymore.
Uncomfortable silence. Unknown Mami looks at the number on the screen of the phone and starts laughing uncontrollably…
Unknown Mami: Sorry, wrong number.
That was not Unknown Papi, it was just some truly Unknown Guy. Can you imagine?! This poor guy probably thought someone was trying to peg paternity on him. I swear he sounded just like my husband. That’s why I should always use speed dial instead of dialing the number myself.
