It is customary for me to call mom before driving over to get my sodas. I can't call before ten or it will wake her up. Well, I started calling at ten and couldn't get her on the home phone or her cell phone. I was beginning to worry something bad had happened until I finally got her on the phone.
"I was just laying down and didn't want to answer the phone," she said.
"Royalty..." I muttered.
"Why did you call me that?" mom asked.
"That's what dad calls you when you do these kinds of things. You are too good to be bothered."
Mom was so sorry for making me worry something bad had happened.
"I'm gone to get yours and our groceries now," she told me.
I hung up the phone and shook my head. I really was worried about her and almost drove over. I don't know where Helen was when all this was going on. I guess I am just being a busy body myself today.
