Sometimes Caller ID gives the wrong information, by accident.
Saturday night, I got a call from “Emerald Hospita” (Caller ID only gives 15 characters). My mind filled in the missing letter, so when I answered the phone, my heart rate was already up, and when my boyfriend’s voice was on the other end, it jumped another notch.
“Are you all right?” I said, scared. “Why are you at the hospital?”
“I’m at work.” My boyfriend works for a hotel chain, the local branch of which is operated under the name “Emerald Hospitality.” Whew!
