Poignant
A call I answered at my library not too long ago.

"Hey Tracy, this is.." and it sounded like he said "Dan". Now sometimes we get customers who will act like they're our best buddies and whatnot, so I'm trying to think "who is Dan and how do I know him"

"Dan?" I answered.

"DAD" came the carefully ennunciated reply. "Your Dad"

Cue my heart to contract in a bit of wistful longing... oh if only.

"Oh," I said, "You want Traci M** . let me get her." Then I think I made the poor man feel bad because I inadvertantly blurted out something along the lines of, "You can't be my dad, he passed away."

Ouch.

The timing is also particularly poignant, no doubt.

Think of it as an echo -- a hello from the past. :)

sometimes the reminders of someone sneak up on you
