Therapy Session Number 312

When we last left our heroine she was rather flummoxed on what to do about her parental units. As she was getting out of her vehicle heading into the grocery store the thought hit her, rather hard, that her mom was having surgery that very day.

Trying to summon the urge to care and failing miserably, our heroine came to the conclusion that there was nothing she could do about it and continued on dealing with her own business.

When she got home she noticed the message light was blinking a very angry impatient blink which she just knew meant her mother had called.

Taking a deep breath, she picked up the phone.

You have 5 new messages.

1st message: *beep* "Hey Jo, it's Mom. Just in case you wanted to know, I had surgery today and I'm back home."

"Ah yes, that is what that tight feeling in the back of my neck was all about." thought our heroine.

2nd message: *beep* "Jo. It's Mom again. I couldn't remember if I had told you or not but I had foot surgery today. I'm home, a little groggy but okay in case you cared. Bye."

"Still trying hard to reach that care part. Only the foot? Wonder why they overlooked fixing her head or finding her heart." she viciously thought. "It's a good thing no one knows I think like this sometimes." she sighed to herself.

3rd message: *beep* "Jo! This is yous fadder speaking. Your Mudder's surgery went well and her foot should be human rather than the chimpanzee impersonation she was pulling. Thought I would let you know. Talk to ya later. Bye!"

"Either the man is clueless that she's called twice or this is some pathetic attempt at pulling on a heart string. Good thing those got snipped." she thought while shaking her head in disbelief.

4th message: *beep* "Jo! Hey, don't you ever answer your phone? I've had surgery! Call me. If you care." Click!

"I wonder if that was a rhetorical question? I also wonder why type of drugs they have her on?" she questioned.

5th message: *beep* "Uh, it's yous fadder again. Your Mom is rather loopy so don't mind her. Haven't heard from ya in awhile, call when you can. Your grandpa was in the hospital last week and is home now. Hope all is well. Bye!"

Our heroine erases all the messages and goes about putting things away. When her Hubs asked who called she filled him in to which he replied it's too bad it wasn't brain surgery rather than foot surgery. He asked if she cared. She said she would sleep on it and get back to him on that question. Now she just hopes she doesn't fry for it.

Darn those flummoxed emotions. Maybe tomorrow I'll have a clue what to do.

Just call and tell her you are glad everything went ok. There. That's it. And don't let it turn into anything else. Nip that stuff in the bud. Margie

Send her a card saying glad you made it. Then you don't have to talk to her but you showed some initiative. : )

Did you get MY message? It was a nice one...

Julie said...

I agree with Kerri... Just send a card.

Sarah said...

Don't know the backstory - sounds like there is one.

So I won't offer advice, just a big (((hug)))

Um...I guess the phrase, "take a hint" means nothing to this woman. *snicker* I agree with the majority and say send a card...although, it'd be really funny if you could leave a message on HER machine!

Why don't you just send a card to Fadder and have him deliver it to her? hmmmmmmm, gets you off the hook from having to listen to all the pains and aches...

momma said...
