out of joint

So the phone rings, and I'm only half awake, but I'm expecting my mum to phone at some point because after she spoke to me last night she promised she'd ring again today, so I answer it. But it's not my mum, it's sion_a's mum, and that catches me off balance when I'm still half-asleep, because as I'm saying "hi" I remember that she probably hates me now, and this makes the "hi" lose its confidence somewhere halfway through the syllable, so I try to recover by saying "I'll get Simon", only I start saying "Sion" first, and she jumps in saying "Simon, yes" in a very snippy tone of voice as if she thinks I've already forgotten his name.

Should have stayed in bed. :-(
