I had a Zoom call scheduled with Vicky to discuss a project. My sister had a doctor appointment I'd forgotten about, and needed me to take her, so I did the call from her doctor's office parking lot instead of my office, without video. I apologized for not having my calendars synced.

We finished our conversation in person then connected via Zoom later so we could see the visual materials. Pretty good, right?
