This morning’s amusing moment

My phone rang and I saw that Kelly was calling from work.  “Hey, what’s up?” I said.

“Uh, hey,” Kelly said, hesitating just slightly.  “I uh, well, I called you by accident.  I was trying to cover but I couldn’t come up with anything.”

I couldn’t help it.  I just laughed.
