I have a superpower. I can control minds. Take a moment to be impressed, I’ll wait . . . Okay, so I can’t control the mind of someone specific, but every time I nap, someone calls me. EVERY SINGLE FRIGGIN’ TIME.

There I’ll be: lying down, drifting off, a dream softly forming. Me on a beach with a young, dark-skinned man kneeling by my chair asking if there is anything he could do to make me happy, and the phone rings.

I won’t be able to get that dream back. Yes, there will be others, but that one had started out so nicely, and now I have to decide if I’m going to answer the phone.

If it’s the house phone I’ll let the machine get it – yes I still have an answering machine – so I can screen calls. (Don’t worry, I would never do that to any of you.)

I can check the caller ID on my cell phone then decide, but since I use my cell for work and the kids emergency cards 90% of the time I have to pick it up. I’m always polite. Oh, no, I wasn’t doing anything, yada, yada, yada, but in my mind I can still see the sexy man on the beach you stole from me.

So what I need to do is figure out how to harness this super power. How does one utilize being able to make people call just as they fall asleep? I’m not sure yet, but I’ll be working on it so if any of you feel the need to call me, please just go with it. 🙂
