I spoke with my mother yesterday. That's no story. I speak with her almost every day. (We have a very good phone card.)
Anyway, she was saying that she was feeling a bit sad about me coming home to visit. She felt like she looked so old. And, she's gained 4 or 5 pounds.
But, then, she said, she saw my photo with Zupe.
Mothers. They really know how to pick you up.
