Is "I" you? if not: human? adult? male or female?
Did you receive the first phone call? did you receive any other calls?
Did you make the first phone call? did you make any other calls?
You didn't believe that the person on the other end was who they said they were? you didn't believe what they said?
Did you also think the second call was unbelievable? more so than the first?
After the second call did you find the first call more believable?

Are there only two calls involved? Did you make the second one?

Unbelievable because you wouldn't expect to get a call like that? Because of where you were when you got it? Because of who called you?

was it unbelievable in the sense that you thought something was false, or just amazing/remarkable?

was there a specific second call that you thought was unbelievable as well? more than one? was there something else other than a call that was unbelievable?

did any of the calls involve the same other person? did any of them involve a recording or computer of some kind? were they regular voice calls, or something else like internet or fax? is it relevant what kind of phone you used? where you were? what time it was?

Does that mean you think it was fate?
or you think someone arranged it?
