My Mother Called

She wanted to tell me that she was out of coffee. Dad bought cases of coffee at 69ยข a can about 10 years ago and she finally used it all up.

I love my mother, but I had to tune her out while she talked and get back to work. Eventually she asked me if I was still there. I said that I had to work to do and people were waiting for me to finish.

I am not a bad son, really, it’s just that I don’t care if she is out of coffee, and I really do have people nagging me at work.

    Larry is retired. He has spent so much time with her that he no longer hears anything that she says.
