i'm really creeped out and i need some consolement.
around 9pm EST today...
the phone rang.
i answered. "hello?"
there was a voice. a static voice. it was trying to tell me something but i couldn't make out the words.
i said "hello" a few more times and then hung up.
now, since my callerID doesn't work right now, i picked up the phone so i could *69 the call and find out who it was.
there was no dial tone.
it was just the voice.
and still i couldn't make out the words.
i hung up and picked up a few more times, and each time the voice was still there, trying to communicate with me with those empty words lost in the sounds of static.
then i came online so the phone wouldn't ring again.
(no, that was not a narrative. it really happened to me today.)
