Wrong Number!

As much as I hate to admit it, something happens as your reach the ‘Golden Years’ in terms of getting a good night’s sleep. I have always been a light sleeper, but every few nights I am rewarded. I actually do not wake up every two hours and drift back to sleep…instead, I actually SLEEEEP deeply through the night. Well, last night was one of those wonderful nights until 1:30 AM when the phone rang.

This was the first call we have gotten in the apartment bedroom, so it took hubby a short while to think about where the phone was and then answer it, but not before he said ominously…Uh Oh. (He was thinking it was our son with a problem of some kind. You can tell the teen years have left their scars.)

Well, as you can guess from the title of this blog, it was a wrong number. I couldn’t get back to sleep for hours! I actually think that wrong numbers after midnight ought to have a fine attached to them!

  1. LOL! This reminds me of when I first moved into an apartment on my own. I was given a free phone from my brother and had never heard it ring before.

    After a few hours of settling in and relaxing, that thing went off and I thought my refrigerator was going to take off to the moon!

    I didn't realize it was a telephone making that awful screeching sound until day three or so. I got used to it, but still laugh about it. That phone is long gone.

    btw, I also got a lot of wrong numbers in the middle of the night. They eventually stop.


Take your time...take a deep breath...then hit me with your best shot.
