I called my dad tonight, who works at the space center. A Lieutenant answered the phone which, strangely, made me nervous.
I asked to speak to my dad, but he was busy. As I was about to leave my cell phone number so he could call me back, the Lieutenant interrupted and said, "are you Karin Tome at xxx-xxx-xxxx?". "um, yeah," I replied.
panic stricken, i thought, "NASA KNOWS MY PHONE NUMBER!!!"
and then, i had the astounding realization: caller ID.
