About a half hour later I was in the car waiting for mom to finish when I saw that I had miss her return phone call. For some unknown reason I actually listened to the voicemail she left. In her trademark quiet, calm, easygoing, unassuming voice she left the following message:
"Hi. It's me. Just calling you back. Wondering if you wanted to talk. I want to talk to you. Is that what you wanted? Did you want to talk to me?
OR DID YOU WANT TO TALK SHIT TO ME??????"
I literally laughed out loud when I heard the last part. I was all alone in my car laughing so hard.
Thank you, Jen, for never ceasing to say something so off the wall that I have no other choice than to laugh! We both have so much loss in our lives and extreme emotional pain that manifests itself into physical problems (me physical pain, you, determined to bake any and every pie ever thought of and even some that haven't....and maybe shouldn't, haha) that when we laugh together it means that much more.
I love you stripy Jen!
