Cracking the Crystal Ball

June 4, 2008



“Have you talked to them?”

“Them who? Who is this?”

“*sigh* It’s your sister. Them, our parents!”

“Oh, that them. And hello to you too.”

“Yeah, yeah, hello. Have you?”

“Not recently. When was the last time you talked to them?”

“Last week! Every time I call I get the answering machine or the voicemail!”

“Did you e-mail?”

“I get the Out of Office reply from Dad and Mom’s got some crazy auto response too…”

“Relax, you know them, they’re probably on one of their trips and don’t want to be in touch!”

“But normally they tell us! Or me, at least.”

“Maybe Dad surprised Mom like he did last year. Or tried to? Remember? They went to Atlanta?”

“Yeah, maybe.”

”And he didn’t want you to spill the beans?”

“She would’ve wanted to know what to wear!”

“Mm-hmm. Anyway, just chill out. They’re probably too busy having sex to call!”

“Shut up!  Shut up! shut up! shut up!”

“*laughing* Why? Because Mom’s 50 now or because it’s your parents having sex??”

“Both!! Shut up!”

“Oh, save it! You know you want to be like that when you’re old!”

“I am so telling Mom you said she was old!”

“And I’ll tell her you want to hear about her sex life!”


“Is your mind off of where they are now?”

“Ugh. Yes. But now it’s on something I’d really rather forget!”

“Good. At least you’re not worried anymore.”

“Thanks so much.”

“Don’t you have a class to get to?”

“Yeah. Don’t you?”

“Mm-hmm. You okay for real?”

“Yes, thank you. Get to class.”

“You too. Love you.”

“Love you too! Bye!”
