Musical Call

2010 July 25

The other day at work, I was making a call to a health clinic. I talked to a receptionist and was trying to arrange for the next available appointment time for a patient.

I was in for a musical surprise.

Here’s what I heard after I asked my question: “Checking the calendar… Waka Waka… Eh eh,” all in song! The receptionist was singing!

And of course, I knew the song (Waka Waka by Shakira) and brought it up. The receptionist told me how the song had been stuck in her head for a while. I said that I had it stuck in my head too and we shared a laugh.

Her singing felt so spontaneous and carefree, as if I wasn’t on the other side of the line. Made me chuckle and smile :)
