My daughter was invited to a birthday party. She asked me to call the number and RSVP for it. So I did - in the middle of the afternoon. I was expecting either a voice mail, or an adult on the other end. That's not what I got.
"Hello?" the voice answered. It was clearly a young person.
"Hi," I said with my still-hoarse voice. "Can I talk to your mom?"
"Who is this?" the voice asked.
"Sherry Ellis. I'm (insert my daughter's name)
Two seconds later, I heard another voice. It was strangely familiar. "Mom?" it said.
It was my daughter. "Why am I talking to you?" she asked.
"Why am I talking to you?" I asked, equally confused.
"Mom, the teacher's coming. I'm not supposed to be on the phone during school. You just got me in trouble!"
Great. All I did was call the number on the invitation. Why in the world was it to a kid's cell phone? And why did my daughter have to be sitting next to the said kid in class? Now I'm in trouble for getting my daughter in trouble! Oy!
