This afternoon I went on an errand for my friend. On the way into town my 'phone rang. I nearly wrecked the car trying to find the 'phone in my bag so that I could yell at the caller "I'm driving, I'll call you back". Couldn't find 'phone, pulled over. It stopped ringing.

Phone rings. I pull over. 'Phone stops ringing. Friend. I call friend, she answers and apologises for ringing me in the first place, she meant to ring someone else. Oh my, how we laughed.
