A little story for everyone:
Yesterday afternoon, I received a phone call from a 773 number (the other digits were clearly U of C #s too). I literally stopped breathing.
"Hello. May I speak with ________ _________?"
"Yes, this is ________.................."
"Great! I'm calling from the Senior Class Gift Committee to see if you're still interested in donating!"
When I saw that number on my caller ID, I got chills. I was still shaking 15 minutes after the call ended. IF I do actually ever get THE CALL, I worry that I might have a heart attack. Would Chicago consider me unfit for the stresses of the lawyerly life if I peace out while Ann Perry's congratulating me?
