That aunt of yours, you know she just rushes through all the time … never having time to talk. She just brought me flowers … wearing little white shorts, showing off her legs. She just wants to show me how skinny she is.
A pause falls as she takes a drag off her morning cigarette.
Mom, I am sure she didn’t pick her shorts out thinking of you.
I hear her sip her coffee.
She probably did! You know how women are … always trying to compete. Trying to prove they are better than you.
Okay mom, it was nice to talk to you … glad you are feeling better. I’ll talk to you later.
