Phone Calls

Every so often I get phone calls from strange women. Often they have heavy accents and they all speak softly, barely above a whisper, as though they don't want anyone to hear their call.

They all ask for Natasha.

I had all these scenarios dreamed up about who this strange Natasha could be. A dealer? A spy? A babysitter?

But today, I discovered that if you mix up just two of the numbers of my phone number, you get a local women's shelter. The shelter is not called Natasha, so it must be a code word. As if my speculations weren't scary enough.
