my mother's birthday
April 2, 2007 11:12am CST
April 4 is my mom's birthday, so I bought a couple of phone cards to be able to call her. She is in her mid-80s and still feisty, although she needs assistance to walk and needs a wheelchair when she has to go outside for doctor's appointments. The last time I spoke to her was in early March, on my birthday. I call her every year on my birthday to thank her for giving birth to me. So, anyway, I had managed to get a connection that was clear enough and I proceeded to say: "Thank you, Ma, for giving birth to me 56 years ago!" and she counters suspiciously: "Who's this??!!"
