Body Memories
Yesterday, when I wanted to call my parents, I dialed the 1-800 number for the calling card we use for long distance without hesitation. I was baffled when I heard those three ascending notes followed by, "You have dialed a number that has been disconnected." I dialed again with the same results. And then I realized that, instead of dialing the calling card number I had actually dialed 1-800-698-8497. That was the number for the switchboard at Bass Tickets' corporate headquarters in Concord, California. I dialed it daily to speak to Kim. But I haven't dialed it in over five years. What causes that sort of mental mix-up? Maybe my unconscious was trying to connect a call.

Long-distance

Have you tried Skype's VOIP? http://www.skype.com/products/skype/macosx/
It won't work of course with those who aren't online on a regular basis, but it has great voice quality and is free. My skype account is mbeecham.

Re: Long-distance

No, I haven't. Maybe I'll give it a shot. We have more anytime mobile phone minutes than we ever use up in a month, so I usually take that approach. But the mobile doesn't come in well in our house. That's why I turn to the calling card for calling the parents. Nice to see you be-LJ-ed!
