The minute I sit down at my desk this morning my office phone rings. Caller id says “Josh Freeman”. EXCUSE ME….WHAAAAAT?!? A million butterflies flutter in my stomach. I scramble for my mouse, google the 301 area code with lightning speed…could it be Florida? Nope, Maryland. Hmmmm. “Well,” I think to myself, “better answer it or you’ll never know”. DEEP BREATH. “This is Vanessa”. And then it hits me. Josh Freeman is probably a common name………and the geeky, caucasian salesman voice on the other end of the line confirms it. DANG IT!!!
Looking back on it, I’m not exactly sure why I thought Josh Freeman would be calling me. I mean we did have a connection in my mind…I did teach his business orientation class, and he did give me a ride home from Hunam one night (nevermind I only lived 3 blocks away). However, I don’t think he’ll be taking a timeout from professional football to call me anytime soon. But at least it was an exciting start to the day!
