Admittedly, my mind has been on other things the last few days, but I didn't realize it had completely left my body! For example, yesterday I arrived at a press conference and introduced myself to the press person. She offered to walk me into the building, but before we reached the door, she stopped to dig some papers out of a folder for me. As she handed them to me, rather than saying "thank you" like a normal person, I said pretty loudly, "Hi!" Without missing a beat, she responded, "Hi." I'm still not sure if she was distracted and automatically answered or if she just thought I was crazy and was going along with it.
Then, today, I set up a three-way call between myself, the Pretend Husband and our brother-in-law (whoo! eighth-grade Total Phone!) As we were all finishing our conversation, I asked the bro-in-law to put my sister on and then, realizing the PH was about to hang up, said, "Bye hon." Well, the PH had already hung up, so the bro-in-law thought I was speaking to him. He said goodbye politely, but a minute later asked Kat's lil sis to ask me if I had called him "hon" on purpose.
Yeah, this house sale had better go through quick before I make a fool of myself in front of a U.S. senator or something!
So many books...
