Odd answer.  But we often say odd things under stress.  Colleagues swear that I once introduced myself as "Thale Domas".  No, I'm not joking.

 

It would be more natural to ask. "Is this Adam?"  "Am I speaking to Adam?"  Surprisingly, you will also hear "Is that you, Adam?"  (Why "that" instead of "this"?  Odd...)
