last night i had one of the more surreal phone conversations i've had in a long time.

i gave Rachel a call to say hello, and she was just about to sit down to eat dinner with her sister and some of her sister's friends. We talked for a little bit, but then her sister was telling her "get off the phone... come in here and eat!"

i don't remember how this segued into her deciding to hand off the phone to everyone around the table, but it did. She gave the phone to her sister, and we chatted briefly, and then it snowballed from there. I ended up talking to three strangers on rachel's cell phone. They were decent sized conversations with the exception of Rachel's sister and Margaret because they were first in line and i was still somewhat frazzled and playing a reactionary role as opposed to an initiating role.

The last guy was funny. He said right off the bat, "let me save you some time" and gave me a brief summary of what he was about so i wouldn't have to ask. Someone i had talked to previously also asked, "what does this Mendel guy look like?" and after i gave a vague description of what i looked like, he said to the other people, "he's a short black guy" or something close to that. it made me laugh.

by the time i was handed back to Rachel, she had finished eating her dinner.

it was pretty neat. i wonder if i'll ever meet them all in person.
