How much my mother believes in me

My mother says someone she doesn’t know sent her a Mothers Day greeting on her Kakao Talk.

I take a gander at her phone. There’s a Mother’s Day ecard from an Unknown sender. I dismiss it as a good Samaritan who needs a life sending out greetings to everyone.

And then I say, “Hey mom, Happy Mothers Day. You must be very happy.”

She says, “I’d be happy if you kids were making money and bought me a gift, but as it stands, I’m indifferent to the holiday.”

I say, “You just wait Mother. Once people start reading my book, word is bound to spread, and then I’ll start buying you gifts.”

She says, “I’m sure I’ll be a corpse by then.”

At least it was implied my work would eventually find its mark.
