Phone Call

Late and feeling mildly guilty, I called home from my cellphone. She picked up the phone quickly; the TV shows Caller ID, and she recognized my number.

"Hello!" she exclaimed.

"Hi, sweetie. How was your day?"

"Great!!!" Her voice vibrated with excitement.

"Well, good!" I replied.

Then, before I could say anything else, she rushed these words into the air between us: "Cody asked me to the dance!!!!"

Ah. I understand now.

  1. Congrats for her, condolences to you, mama! DD1 informed me the teacher rearranged their seats…she now sits by “boy,” who’s always “picking on” her, said with a blush and too much enthusiasm. Sigh…
