MOM: I wanted to tell you that I changed the number of rings on my phone to six. It’s so hard for me to answer before the fourth ring. So now, when you call, let it ring six times before you leave a message.
MOM: And, I’ve been sorting things out and I wanted to talk to you about my funeral.
ME: Mom, we talked about it. I know where everything is and we’ll make all the calls.
MOM: Well, I was thinking that it would be nice to have another musical number.
ME: Fine. I will sing.
MOM: (Horrified.) NO!
ME: That’s so mean.
MOM: My little girl that can’t carry a tune.
ME: Fine. I will lip sync.
MOM: No. I was thinking that I’d like your sweet student, Nicole, to play something. Do you think she would.
ME: Yes. And, instead of funeral potatoes back at your ward house, we’ll come up to Szechwan for Chinese food.
