the phone call

a conversation between my mother and me:

Did anyone call?
No, no one called
Did Aunt Debbie call
Mom, Aunt Debbie did not call. Jeff called, colleges called, and friends called for me.
No one called for you.
I didn’t ask if anyone called for me. It is just amazing that all these people say they’ve called and you tell me no one called.
deep sigh
So. Did anyone call?
