The Newsroom RING TONE calls to me from my phone at 9:30 pm.
MOM CELL (because she refuses to give up her landline and only calls me on her cell phone because my 435 area code is long distance) appears on the screen
ME: Is she okay?
MOM: Julie? Julie? Can you hear me?
ME: Yes. Is Betty White okay?
MOM: I have to tell you that I’m spoiling your little girl.
ME: Good. She deserves it. What are you doing?
MOM: Well, she didn’t eat all of her food and I remembered how much Diesel like graham crackers so I smashed a half of graham cracker into crumbs and she at ALL of it.
ME: I bet she’s happy.
MOM: Well, she didn’t cry as much today. But, when she wakes up, she puts her nose in the air and just cries for you.
ME: I don’t believe that. I don’t even think she likes me.
MOM: And, she’s so good about going outside. She just went outside and did a poo.
