I answered our phone a while back, and a woman's voice said, "I just had to call, Melanie. Aren't you so glad they won?"
I had to break it to her that I wasn't Melanie, but I asked her if it was the Phillies she was talking about.
She happily explained that yes, the Phillies had just won, 9-2. I thought of my mom, whom I had visited earlier in the day, just as the game was starting. She was so hoping for a win.
Thanks to a wrong number, I learned those Phillies must have made Melanie's day. My mom's, too.
It was nice to share happiness with a stranger.
