Thanks Mom

“I hardly slept. Those neighbours. Cubans? They spent all night arguing. The walls are so thin, I heard everything.”

“Where’s your coffee maker? In the cupboard? I don’t know how this works, I’ll just have tea. If you have it.”

“You’re wearing that to work? Oh nothing. It’s a bit tarty, is all. Although I suppose it’s the style. I can only imagine what your father would think.”

“Have you thought about moving, like we talked about? This city, it’s just filthy. And dangerous. The paper said…well, never mind.”

“You know dear, I only want to make sure you’re happy.”
