As I was driving home from having dinner with an old friend, I noticed that Rick had called and I had missed his call... and so I called him back.
"Are you sitting down?" he asked.
I love that phrase. It usually means I'm about to hear something wonderful.
"I mean, seriously, are you seated?"
"Rick, I'm driving. I'm definitely seated."
* * pause * *
And in that deafening silence, I just KNEW that Rick was about to tell me that we had an offer on our house. I just KNEW it! And I quickly imagined how that would feel... especially since I imagined that it was going to be a FULL PRICE OFFER!
"My mom called tonight."
"Oh." Okay, so it wasn't about the house.
"My brother took her to Hooters for Mother's Day!"
I swear, that was Rick's big news.
I wanted to kill him. And he was right. It was good that I was sitting down. Otherwise I might've fallen down... sleeping.
