I had arranged to take my Mother out one day to a few appointments. As I was about to leave my house I called her to let her know what time I’d be there so that she could be ready.
“Ma I’m just leaving the house now so I’ll be there in fifteen minutes to pick you up. That’ll give us enough time to be in Hamilton for 10:00.”
She was quick to reply “Oh I’m glad you called. I was just going to phone you. Any chance you can leave 10 minutes earlier? I’d like to stop at The Bay first.”
P.S. my Mother’s response to me noticing slips like this is typically “sure make fun of me. You wait, your day will come.”
… don’t worry Ma, it already has ~!!~
