This Number is Out of Service

The phone ringing at three in the morning used to be a portentous thing, a sign of doom: who died, or was sick, or needed to be bailed out of jail?

These days, technology has rendered our fear superfluous. "Hmm," we say after a few clicks on Google, "area code 233 is Ghana?"

"I don't know anyone in Ghana," we say to ourselves, and we roll over and go back to sleep.
