On Saturday the phone rang. I was expecting it to be my dad, since I had just attempted to call him.
“Hello!” I answered in a goofy Seinfeld-like voice.
“Well hello!” said the voice on the other end. It kind of sounded like my favourite aunt.
“Hello!” I answered back in the same goofy voice.
“I’m just calling to check in and see how you’re doing in this pandemic!” said the voice on the other end. It was not my aunt and my guard was now up.
“I’m doing great!” I said, not exactly lying, all things considered.
“This is Kathy calling from the Jehova’s Witnesses!”
I froze and reverted back to my basic phone instincts. I hung up.
Long story shot, Kathy called back two more times thinking we just got disconnected. The second time I still thought it was my dad! It is comforting to know that the Jehova’s Witnesses have evolved to deal with the pandemic! They are not able to go door to door, so now I have to avoid them in different ways!
