Heartstopping phone call

I’d just been reading Privacy International’s report on their stupid security contest when the telephone rang. The caller ID said UNKNOWN NUMBER. I answered it, and a female voice announced that she was from the Department of Homeland Security.

Time seemed to slow down for a few moments.

Then she continued that she worked for the Immigration and Naturalization Service. Oh yeah, INS was moved into Homeland Security. I remember now. So apparently the application to have my visa made really permanent is being processed and we’ll hear something very soon. I gave her sara’s office number, I think she wanted to call and verify that we’re still married.
