A post written in five minutes on the prompt “who” for Five Minute Friday. Check it out if you want some inspiration to write.
For the first time ever, I have gotten a call from someone calling me Grandma. “Who are you?” I asked.
“I am your grandson.” He said, in a masculine adult voice.
“Oh, really? I don’t have any grandsons. Would you like to try another approach?” Click.
I can hardly believe that anyone would take the time necessary to make calls to scores of people, hoping to find one gullible person who actually has a grandson of a certain age. They hope to find someone who doesn’t even recognize their grandson’s voice or know his circumstances. I imagine if our conversation would have gone on longer I would have heard a story that ended with the need for funds being sent. But who does these things, and who is so confused that they respond to them and send them money? Inconceivable (at least for me.) Who? Just sayin’…
