Post Shabbat Phone Call

Me: Hi auntie, it’s Susi, how are you
Filipino Auntie: Who?
Me: Susi.
Filipino Auntie: Who? I’m sorry I don’t know who you are.
Me: uhhh.. ok, it’s Vinda’s Daughter? Your niece?
Filipino: OH!!! Sooooseeeeee!!!Iss that you?
Apparently, I was putting the wrong stress on my name. It’s not Sue-zee. It’s Sue-See.
I called my grandmothers’ house to make sure she was alright. I had a dream over Shabbat that I was holding her sick body in my arms.
Grandma: Thank you for calling Sue-Cee. I was in the hospital last night. I am feeling much better now.
