I never answer calls from unknown numbers. Ever… except this once, about forty five minutes ago.
I’m not sure why, I didn’t even think about it. Just answered.
“This is Casey”
“…Hi Casey, this is Annie.”
It took me a second to realize that “Annie” is Ann Stenerson, and that those five words were the first I had ever heard in my life
spoken by my Mother.
She seems kind of awesome… and I have a younger half brother (Quincy) and sister (Mendocino, aka Mindy).
Needless to say, right now I’m just about speechless with joy.
