I don't have a Guggenheim Fellowship after all

But I got a phone call while I was at Starbucks, which made the impression that someone was speaking on behalf of the Guggenheim Foundation.

What I heard --- but I suffer from auditory hallucinations --- was that I was being offered a Guggenheim Fellowship.

I said 'no...I can't hear you' because I couldn't hear what they were saying.

So now I don't know if I'll ever hear from them again. It was a no-callback number.

The other option is it was an ad for Laser Vision surgery. Oh well.

Update: At least two Guggenheim foundations claim it wasn't them. But maybe it was a screening call by Lavazza, which is one of their supporters... I may not ever know.
