In the five-one-oh?

Ennis just sent me this, about a guy who dreamt a phone number, called it and started chatting up the woman who became his wife. My inclination was that this was much more likely.

But it did remind me that my third and fourth boyfriend's phone numbers were in order:

3rd: 46X - 9346
4th: 54X - 9354
Nxt: 62X - 9362

(The X's are in order, too. Please don't be crazy people.)

Anyway, my former friend and I called the Next number one time. Nothing for 916 - some old lady. But a guy answered for 530. I got really nervous and I hung up on him. That is all. The end.

Chico is kind of a long ways away isn't it?

That story is worthy of an XKCD comic.

My friend and I went through a brief prank call phase many moons ago. We stopped when we phoned up a number, innocently asked if "John" was there, and then were grilled by his suspicious partner for the next half hour ("Did one of his children give you this number?" etc.)

When the National Lottery started here, the first week my dad wanted to know the winning numbers, so just phoned a random number, asked for John, then apologised for having the wrong number and asked them the lottery numbers. It worked :)

Megan, can you find someone who can tell you addresses from phone numbers? Then go out there and stalk him! Obvious, really.

SHOW UP AT HIS HOUSE!! Of COURSE! So perfect! He'll understand when he sees me in person.

Call him again! The odds are low, but what do you have to lose? Plus if you two do marry you can probably wangle an appearance on national TV.

There is in fact a land line in Oakland that belongs to that number. But I would have to pay $15 to find out the address and I am less than $15 superstitious.

I am less than $15 superstitious.

Interesting way of putting it. I'm not sure what dollar amount I can lay to my superstition...

Maybe I can bound it by considering chain letters: I have received them in the mail in the past and did not participate. So... just going off of the postage, I'm probably less than $2.50 superstitious.

Jeez, I'd pay $15 if you *would* go out there and wangle a meeting, lol! You wouldn't have to just knock at the door and say, "hello, I'm your girlfriend now", I'm sure you could be more subtle ;-)

Excuse me? Is my boyfriend home? He'd be about 35... Is he here?

That's cool. I'll just wait 'til he gets back.
