I Know She’d Love To Hear From You

If I call my mother, can I pay my bill?

Call Her

* * *

“Hi, Mom.”

“Oh, how nice to hear from you. My maiden name is Hirschberger, by the way. Not Hirschfelder.”

“Oh. How did you –?”

“And the yellow car isn’t a taxi.”

“Have you been talking with the robot, Mom?”

“You really shouldn’t call it a robot, dear. It’s so sensitive about these things.”

“Yeah, I gathered.”

“So, are you going back to pay your water bill now?”

“You know what? I think I’ll just pay in person.”
