Perfect Moment: Wrong Number

I'm so excited! This is my first time posting a Perfect Moment. Thank you so much, Lori, for this opportunity. I have this terrible habit of saving people's numbers on my cell phone without adding any extra info I might need to associate the person to a face later on. So there must be hundreds of Maria's or José's that I have no idea who they are. I could just add something like "X's mom", "from support group", "student" etc. Nope! I always convince myself that I'll know who they are later on. But let's face it, at 40 my memory is not what it used to be.

Today I had to make a phone call and realised there were 4 different people with the same name in my phone list. I couldn't remember this person's last name nor anything more for that matter. So, decided to call them in order until I hit jackpot. And this is when my perfect moment took place. I dialled the first one on the list and she knew who it was from caller ID. First thing she says when she answered was "OMG! How did you know?!? Are you psychic?" I recognised her voice immediately and my brain started processing that bit of info and it clicked! "You're pregnant!!!" She had just received her results shortly before my call. It was an incredible moment because the last time we spoke she was getting ready for FET #2 and was a nervous wreck. I tried to explain why I had called her but she's still convinced that I have psychic powers. This is actually quite funny because I am such a non-believer when it comes to these things. But I hope this is a perfect moment she'll be telling her child one day. I was thrilled.

HI, Here from Lori's blog.

I hate it when I accidentally call someone and then I have to make up a reason/small talk to cover up my ineptitude.

In this case this seems to have worked out rather well for you (and for her).Brava.
