In Tuesday's mail, I received an envelope from Lyn. She had made a couple of Halloween cards for us and asked Mom to mail them. I picked up the phone and called her. Mom answered and I quickly realized I was interrupting their dinner. I promised to keep it quick.
Lyn didn't figure out who was calling when Mom passed her the phone. She was confused about who would call and ask to speak with her.
Me: Hi! It's S. I just...
Me: I am S. Your sister. S.
I could tell when it clicked with her. It was marked enough that even Mom noted the confusion and struggle to identify me.
Hopefully, it was just a momentary blip.
