Tim Babb’s April Foolishness
The following is one of my “classic” blogs from MySpace, back on March 7, 2007
I was sitting at my computer and my cell went off. I went to see who was calling and it said, “Me!”
“Me” is my own cell number I have programed into the phone. I stared at it for a while…trying to figure out how what I was seeing could possibly be happening.
My cell phone is ringing…and the person on the other end is me…but I that can’t be, because I’m holding the cell phone. And yet, there it is ringing away in my hand.
I was so dumb struck that I didn’t answer it…and wouldn’t you know it…I didn’t leave a message. Isn’t that so like me? What a d***. If I’m gonna call myself, I should at least leave me a message about why I called.
But I’m still lost on how it could have happened? Is the government screwing with me for listening to Al Franken on You Tube? Is the New AT&T having trouble swallowing Cingular and this is just one of the side effects…or…
Maybe I was sent back in time in the future and there is another me here! And maybe future me was trying to call and warn me about something. (I wish future me had gone back a few more days and told me which lottery numbers to pick)
But wait…if it was me from the future, wouldn’t I know that I didn’t answer the call…and that I wrote this goofy blog about it?
…wait…maybe that was future me’s plan all along. To get me to post this blog…and then others would read it and maybe they would come out to Rooster T. Feathers in Sunnyvale this Sunday for Geek Comedy Night! Especially after they clicked on the link to the Rooster T. Feathers website. Or perhaps the link to the Geek Comedy Night Myspace Profile.
Wow…my future self is a shamless whore.
Side note: That show went great, but I never figured out why I called myself
