Too many Tracys.

Posted Thu Sep 21, 2006, 11:25 AM by Tracy | |

My cell phone rang this morning, just as I was getting ready for work. It was an old school friend. I wondered why she was calling me first thing in the morning, but I was happy to hear from her.

“Hi, Tracy, this is A__ B___.”

“Hi, I know, you’re on my cell phone.”

“I thought you’d be at work by now. I thought you got there at 8. I’m here now.”

“I was just about to go dry my hair. It’s 20 minutes to 8.”

“What are you talking about? It’s 20 minutes to 9.”

“Are you in [state in a different time zone]? ... Are you trying to call a different Tracy?”

“Ha ha ha ha! Yes I am. I’ll call you later when we’re both at home. Bye.”


  1. In college I lived with a Cindy. Cindy = Sydney. What was terribly akward were the conversations with each other’s boyfriends and suddenly saying “Omigod, you want Cindy not Sydney.”
