Today's Morning Phone Call

"Hi, this is Ben speaking."

Silence.

"Hello?"

More silence.

"Bye..."

Just about to hit the disconnect, when a voice cuts in: "--tarot card reading."

"What?"

"Do you do tarot card readings?"

"No, I think you got the wrong number."

"But I read your ad. It said that you do tarot card readings."

"Pretty sure it didn't."

"It said. Do you do?"

"No. I think you got the wrong number."

"No, it's the right number. You do tarot card readings."

"Sorry, wrong number."

Disconnect.

So I'm awake now. Lovely. I bet I could charge more for tarot readings. I should've thought of that.
