Well, something obviously went wrong.
I ended the call and dialed again.
I think I must have tried it three times. Finally, I gave up. I don't know what was wrong with the stupid phone, but it wasn't ringing and the time period during which it would be funny had passed.
The next morning my mom complained to my sister that the phone had been in her bedroom all night and that her stupid friends were prank calling the house.
I never corrected her.
