One would think that after over 50 years sober in AA, I would have encountered everything possible. I have either done it, seen it done, or had it done to me.
Well, not too long ago, I received a call from another state some distance from my home in Virginia. The caller introduced himself, explained where he got my name and phone number and asked if I would be willing to drive there to speak at an anniversary meeting.
After some discussion, I agreed that I would be willing to make the trip.
