A reenactment of a phone call with my mom yesterday.

Ring, Ring, Ring!
Me: As I answer my phone, "Hi Mom."

My mom: Sounding surprised I answered my own cell phone, "ohh..Allison?"

Me: Yes mom, it's me.

My mom: Oh.(Once again surprised I answer my cell phone as if she was expecting someone else.) What are you doing?

Me: I'm having dinner with my friend.

My mom: Gets excited, "Oh a blog friend. Are you eating dinner with a blog friend? Maybe it's that plum?

Me: No, it's a non-blog friend. You know, one I met in real life first.

My Mom: "Oh, OK then, call me when you are done."

HA! You could have eased her mind by telling her it was at least a facebook friend.

That sounds like a conversation my mom and I would have. . .

It's pretty obvious she wanted to speak with your vmail instead of you. Or "that plum"

that's adorable! my mom still sounds confused when i answer and say "hi mom." like i'm psychic or something. i think she forgets that caller id exists on everyone's phones, not just hers.
