day 18: failed memory
My mother called early Friday morning. I got a little worried when I heard the ring (we have the phone set to ring a different pitch when one of our parents calls) so early, esp. considering it’s an hour earlier in TX than here in VA.
It turns out she was calling to tell me the New Kids on the Block where performing on the Today Show. She and my Dad both seemed to remember that I liked them. I quickly corrected her, explaining that I was WAY too cool for NKOTB (because I was sooo cool back then, HA!) and scoffed anyone who showed an interest in their music, their dancing, or their looks. Jennifer-how could their memories be that off??? Even after my Dad took us to the Depeche Mode Violator concert! I was sooo disappointed in them!
