when your phone number is similar to the local vet's

"Hello love, sorry to bother you, it's Joyce Marvin here, that's M-A-R-V-I-N, and I just wondered how the little hedgehog we brought in on Friday afternoon is doing, is he alright?"

Oh, you could have fun with this...

'Well, actually, it's doing okay, but turns out it wasn't a hedgehog, it was actually a small cat that had fallen into a dying pine tree after rolling in some glue. It had twenty-two albino pygmy kittens last night, which are worth £1000 each! Thanks for bringing him in. Bye!'

fab - but seriously, can't you ring the vet and find out how the hedgehog is doing? I'm worried about the little fella now!

I do hope you told her you'd eaten it.

Hope you changed her name - she could get prickly!

Bless. LOVE hedgehogs!

I often answer the phone pretending to be a pizza shop worker....

It was difficult enough telling her little worried voice that she'd got the wrong number nevermind it was a cat / I've eaten it! I did tell her I really hope he's okay too.

And yes, I've changed her name. I think. I can't properly remember her name. She did spell it out for me though.
