Today I made my first call about a freelance story, to a PR guy somewhere in the midwest. It feels weird to be doing something so clearly work-y like that at home. Not wrong, just unusual. Here's how unusual: The first time I called, the call didn't go through. I got some kind of phone company error message. I looked at the display on the phone, checked the number, it was right - then I realized I'd dialed 9 first. Apparently, in my brain, you have to dial 9 before making a work-related call.
One of many small mental adjustments.
