And I bravely picked up the phone. She wanted:
- To tell me she’s decided to have the upper right tooth extracted.
- Ask, again, when the next dental appointment is.
- Tell me that this is the first dental work she’s needed in decades and decades. And that she’s only needed cleanings meanwhile, and
- Ask me what we were getting up to this evening. I said we were going out to dinner.
She rang off cheerily. No mention of my birthday 😜!
