New Thing #339: I got it
This is something I've been meaning to do forever, but whenever the opportunity arises, I've always either forgotten or lost my nerve. So today while buying pants at Express, I gave my phone number as 867-5309. I claim special ownership to this number because while I'm pretty sure nobody ever felt compelled to write anything about me on a bathroom wall, I am a Jenny. You'll notice that if you simply say the numbers verbatim, the song doesn't immediately come to mind. So when the cashier asked for my phone number, I had the flash of brilliance I'd been waiting for and instead of giving an old work number, said "sure... 646? 867? 53? 09." My apologies to anyone who might actually have that number, but come on, I bet a nice lady from Express is the least threatening person who's ever called you.
