The Phone Rang at Night

I stayed up late reading last night. I just could not put the book down. I finally got off to sleep and a couple of hours later the phone rang. I woke up instantly and saw it was my son in NY who hung up right away. I called him back and found out that he was deleting stuff from his phone and accidentally dialed me. I told him I would go back to sleep. A late night phone call gets the adrenalin pumping so I could not sleep. I would be up early to go to my writer's group meeting this morning. I forgot to go the meeting. Some days, you just wonder.

I am always terrified by late phone calls. Last year, besides the 2 times the burglars entered and robbed at my house, I was called at night once. The person told me they had one of my daughters and they wanted ransom. The voice of my daughter called help. Fortunately, I had the other phone and called my daughter and she was at home, fast asleep. She did not believe me until the same thing happened to her. Bad guys get cellphones into prison and they have people outside to do their bad deeds.

Yes, I know that feeling. A few years ago, I was getting a call every night from a Mr. Lee in Mexico City, a collect call. I have no idea who he was or why he was calling collect. I kept yelling that it was a wrong number and to never call here again. It went on for days.
