I called my friend “E” at home. She answered.
me-How are you?
E-Good, how are you?
me-O.K., it’s hot.
E-Yeah, really hot.
me-Yeah, fuckin’ hot.
E-Yeah, really fuckin’ hot.
me-Yeah, fuckin’, fuckin’ hot.
E-I guess you don’t have your kids with you. (laughs)
me-No, they’re with me.
me-(now thinking that I’m maybe not actually speaking with E-something doesn’t seem right-I check my phone to see if I called the right number. I did.)
E-Do you think you’re talking to E?
E-Oh, I thought you were E calling in. This is her sister in law, D.
me-OMG. This is her very embarrassed friend. I’m not sure I should tell you my real name.
D-It’s o.k. I have a total potty mouth, too.
me-Well, then, hi, I’m Lesly.
D-Hi, I’m D, E’s sister in law.
me-Nice to meet you.
D-You too. (laughing)
me-O.K. then, if you remember, would you please tell E I called?
D-Oh, I’ll remember. Bye.
