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