Random Things My Mom Calls Me About

  • answers to riddles with answers like "a fish" and "a ring" and "meat" so she can call in to win radio contests
  • whether I've heard of a particular movie because she has passes to a free screening
  • what movie to go see and what the kids might like
  • free movie screenings in my area
  • coupons on the Internet for free stuff
  • answers to movie trivia so she can call in to win radio contests
  • writing clues for scavenger hunts because I am apparently the only clever person she knows
  • reminding me to call relatives for their birthdays/anniversaries so I look good
  • editing/rewriting articles for the newsletter because I am apparently the only person in the Dallas/Fort Worth area who can write
  • telling me how impressed everyone was with an article I wrote because I am apparently the only person in the Dallas/Fort Worth area who can write
  • thanking me for the latest season of Veronica Mars that has arrived at her door
  • writing a short speech for her because I am apparently the only person in the Dallas/Fort Worth area who can write
  • just to hear my voice
As much as I bitch about her, as much as she annoys me and pisses me off and makes me cry, as much as I never want to answer the phone when she calls because she's basically the only person who ever calls me, as much as I sometimes feel like she's deliberately trying to make me unhappy, I really do love my mom, and I'm glad I have her around.
