Be Careful What You Wish For

Hi, mom.

"Did you do something for your sister for Mother's Day?"

She's not that kind of mother.

"Your sister needs a little affirmation right now."

That's her problem.

"Couldn't you get her a card?"

It's Sunday.  She'll never get it.

Eventually, mom says, "Dedicate a song to her!"

No.

"It'll cost you nothing.  She listens to a certain station all the time.  She's listening now.  Dedicate a song to her."

No.

Three minutes of pleading, I cave.

I hang up with mom and call the radio station.  I dedicate a song to my sister....

"Mother's Little Helper" by the Stones.

About twenty minutes later, mom calls me.  Before I can even say hello, she says, "THAT WASN'T FUNNY!"

The hell it's not.

Looks like I'll be excused from this bullshit next year.

That was AMAZINGLY funny! I thought your mother wasn't supposed to be talking to your sister. Not that I expected that to last.

Dad allows them to talk as long as sis 1) keep up the rehab and 2) doesn't pull any of her bullshit. She tried it once, and dad locked down their phones, so she knows he's serious.
