Year 4, Day 188

As is typical just past 5:30, Jaclyn called me on the phone while I was driving home from work yesterday. As we greeted each other, I immediately heard Miles laughing in the background.

“Who is that??” I asked in an over-the-top, incredulous voice.

“I’m Miles!” he called.

“Miles?” I said, toning it down and sounding legitimately confused. “I don’t know anyone named Miles…”

Miles was silent for a moment, clearly contemplating this. Finally, he said, “…who is I?” as though my question had triggered some deep, profound self-reflection.

I was just goofing, kid! I really didn’t expect you to have an existential crisis or anything!
