In which Primo discovers I would rather donate a kidney than talk on the phone

Me: Wow. That doctor who got ebola and survived came back to the States to give his blood to the nurse who got it. His blood must have antibodies from that experimental vaccine. I would do that. I would give blood like that, even though I would pass out.

Primo: Would you give a kidney to your sister?

Me: Of course.

Primo: Would you give a kidney to your brother?

Me: Of course.

Primo: But you won't call your mom on the phone!

Me: I HATE talking on the phone!

Primo: YOUR MOTHER!!!

Me: I email her.

  1. You have to know your audience. In college my boyfriend couldn't understand why I didn't call my mother on Mother's Day. I told him I sent her a card. But after he called his mother I went ahead and called mine. She wondered why I had called as I had sent her a card.

    1. She probably thought, "Liz is calling. Oh no! Did something bad happen?"

  2. I email my mom daily, but call her only on Mother's Day and Christmas. I hate the phone!

  3. :D my mom passed in 2001.

    I L-O-V-E adore my MIL but why the "f" do I have to get up early on a Sunday, spend time with relatives I might not want to for Not My Mother?

    Although this year was perfect at BIL & his wife's house Mom's Day.

    1. Sorry. :( The missing never goes away, does it?

      If I had to celebrate mothers day for Doris, I would have to slit my wrists.
