MOM: Call me tomorrow. Uncle Lawrence is not feeling very well, so we are not running errands together. I’ll be home all day.
ME: Okay. I’m going to see the doctor tomorrow.
MOM: Which doctor? Your regular doctor? Why? What’s wrong?
ME: My regular doctor. It’s just my annual exam.
MOM: Well, you make sure and tell her that your mother is worried about you. You need to put on ten more pounds. Tell her I said so.
MOM: Maybe I should come up and go with you.
ME: No words. Nothing.
