Well, well, well... I must relate a very strange experience from, well, early this morning.

So I'm laying in bed at 4:30 this morning (about) and the phone starts ringing. It rings and quits four or so times... I don't remember exactly (I was attempting to be asleep, you know?) Turns out it's the Village of ----- PD trying to buzz in to our apartment from downstairs. One of my roommates had been answering the phone, and thinking that it was someone drunk and or trying to break in, he kept hanging up on them. Good and bad idea at the same time. They were pretty upset when they got here.

By the time the cops get up to our 7th floor, all of my other roommates are awake and up (all 3 of them), and I'm still sorta half to 3/4 asleep. But I can hear them having an animated conversation with one of my roommates who has a non-standard name of Eastern European extraction. They thought he was making it up. C'mon guys.

So they roust me out of bed, 'cause I'm the one they're wanting to talk to. The first thing the cop asks me is, "Did you call your mother tonight?"

I answered, "No..." (and wondering what they were getting at) "Should I have?"

They question me regarding my name, hometown, and mother's name. They ask me if I am sure of all of that. "Do you go by _________ as well?" No. Finally, we figure out that they're looking for someone with the same last name who lives in the building across the road. They say "We're sorry to bother you guys." Somehow they got the name and address mixed up with us. At 4:30 AM, little wonder. But what the heck, y'know?

Yes, I have a strange life. Does this happen often?
