My phone rang.
Since I was expecting an important message — I’m basically in the fourth of these stages — I bolted from the laundry room to answer before it went to voicemail.
Suzi, having no interest in taking a charge, deftly stepped out of my way.
Alas, I could tell from the call’s location that it wasn’t the one I was waiting for, but I picked up to hear a recorded message from the State of Massachusetts telling me that COVID booster shots are available.
When the time comes, I’ll be very happy to get a booster shot, but the earliest I’ll be eligible is next month … plus it wasn’t the call I was looking for.
OK, whatever, just another robocall. Annoying, but it happens.
However, the call came about an hour after I got a text message …
… from the State of Massachusetts …
… telling me that COVID booster shots are available.
Like the phone call, I’m sure the text was automated, meaning the state has developed a computerized version of the coworker who calls you to ask if you got the email he or she just sent.

The same thing happens in South Africa, except you’ll get three automated calls and four text messages saying the same thing.
