Foot in mouth disease

I got a phone call yesterday morning, and seeing the call display, I pick up the phone and greet her with, "Hi Baby!"

She pauses, giggles and says, "I love you so much."

I laugh.

She asks, "Do you want to do lunch today?"

I reply with a question of my own, "Are you sure you have enough time for lunch today? It's kind of far."

"Yeah," she falters. "Why wouldn't I?"

"Don't you have to be at work?"

She hesitates. "No?"

"No?" I repeat, wondering why she got the rest of the afternoon off.

We talk for another 30 seconds or so, and then she finally says, "Hello?! It's me, (redacted)!"

I groan out loud and inwardly. "Oh gross! (Redacted), why did you keep talking to me after I said 'hi baby'? You should have just said your name."

"Because," she stammers. "I thought you were saying 'hi baby' because I'm the baby in the family...."

Double yuck!

Man, dating a twin is so very difficult if they sound exactly the same on the phone.

And for the record, she did not say, "I love you so much." She probably said, "The family's going to lunch."
