Who Called Whom?

Micah:  Hey, Cyndi, where are you going in such a hurry?


Cyndi:  It just occurred to me who placed that strange phone call Saturday morning.  I have to tell Jan.

Marcus:  Jan already knows who called her.

Cyndi:  No, she doesn't.  She just knows whom she spoke to.

Micah:  That doesn't make any sense.

Cyndi:  Yes, it does.

Micah:  I wasn't in the living room at the time.  What happened?

Marcus:  Jan was putting on her shoes and socks so we dogs could walk her.  The phone rang.  Jan stuck one foot half in the second shoe and clomped across the room to answer.  She recognized the name in Caller ID as J from the local Toastmasters Club.  She had called him Wednesday morning about the coming meeting.

Micah:  I remember that.  He wasn't home at the time.  His wife C answered the phone and recognized Jan's voice but couldn't place it.  They talked for several minutes before Jan realized she had not identified herself. 

Cyndi:  Jan called him again Friday evening regarding future club business.  Then early Saturday morning there was a strange phone call.

Jan:  Hello.

Female voice:  Hello.

Silence.

Female voice:  Who is this?

Jan:  Who are you?

More silence.

Jan:  C?

C:  Jan?

Jan :  When you called I thought you were teasing me about what happened Wednesday.

C:  I didn't call you.

Jan:  I didn't call you either.

Micah:  So if C didn't call Jan and Jan didn't call C, who called the two of them at the same time?

Cyndi:  That's easy.  It was Casper the Friendly Ghost.

Marcus:   Then he must be the one who knocked over Jan's coffee cup.

Micah:  No, Marcus, that was you.

  8. I still don't understand who called whom! I think Jan called C's wife and C's wife did not recognize her and so C's husband than called Jan to see who SHE was and then Jan said....oh, forget it. I'm too confused. Maybe Marcus will straighten me out.
