Me: “Hello?”

Male voice: “Hi!”

(I don’t recognize the voice. trying to think who it could be.)

Me: “Hi…”

Male voice, with sultry enthusiasm: “I’m painting my toenails, just the way you like!”

(I am utterly speechless. a pause ensues.)

Me: “Umm…”

Male voice, now surprised and nervous: “Is this Christine?”

Me, trying not to laugh: “You have so got the wrong number!”
