It probably means nothing but the current weather (warm with occasional and unpredictable monsoons) leaves me with time to brood on little things.
In the UK, if you use a mobile (cell) phone to send a text message, but send it to a landline phone, there's no screen on the landline phone so the message can't be displayed. Instead, you get an automated call and a recorded voice reads out the number of the phone that sent the message, then reads the message.
I had one such call today. I have no idea who owns the phone it came from, the number is nowhere in my list of contacts. The message was short and enigmatic.
"Jim passed away this morning."
Now, I know several people called Jim, scattered around the country. There are even some overseas. One in particular is an uncle who is old and hasn't been well for some time. So what do I do? Phone back the number and say 'Who are you, and which Jim do you mean?' I have a reputation for being allegedly insensitive but that's a bit much even for me.
The alternative would be to phone every Jim I know with the following short exchange:
Me: Oh, you're not dead then.
The one who doesn't answer gets a card. I could call it 'Funeral Roulette' but that would get me further accusations of insensitivity, I suspect.
Then again, it could have been a wrong number. Probably safest to do nothing and wait until someone doesn't turn up somewhere.
