The phone rang today and when I went to answer it I noticed that the caller ID read our last name with the first initial J. I couldn't figure out who it would be. Bryce does have a cousin, or second cousin, or something like that whose name begins with a J, but it seemed like a pretty slim chance he would be calling us.
The conversation went something like this...
J: Is this Bryce?
Me: No, this is his wife, may I take a message?
J: My last name is the same as yours.
J: Are we related?
Me: I don't think so.
J: Are you from Mississippi?
Me: No, sorry you must be looking for someone else.
J: Nope, I think we's related.
Me: How did you find our phone number?
J: In them white pages.
J: So, maybe you's all related to me?
Me: No, sorry, I really don't think so. My husband's family is not from Mississippi.
J: Well, I was just looking y'all up in the white pages and I figured we's must be related.
Much to J's dismay I quickly ended the conversation and hung up a bit baffled. We don't have that unique of a last name and I can honestly say no one has ever randomly called me or us before because they thought they had found long lost family.
I kind of feel bad for J, he seemed so excited to find some family. Maybe the next people he calls will happen to be from Mississippi.
