Mother, May I Phone a Friend?

My mom, this morning: What’s a nice word for hag?

I wasn’t even close to awake yet, but my neurons processed and then clung to that question as if it were a lifeboat sailing toward the new day.

She later clarified she was working on a birthday card for a friend. EVEN BESTER.
