Happy Mother's Day! I adore my mother. I cannot describe my deep affection for her. She is the only person that has physically been around throughout my entire life. She is so proud of everything that I do (even the lamest, most insignificant things) and I love her for it. And now that I'm an adult (almost 27! How?!), I kind of feel like her protector. She's put up with enough crap in her life to not have to deal with d-bags. True story.
So, in honor of the day, I secretly recorded my Mother's Day phone call. (I realize this calls into question that whole "protector" thing as well as my ethics as a producer, but let's ignore that for now, shall we?) We spoke for about 10 minutes; the essence of our conversation is captured in today's sixty seconds.
My favorite part is her encouragement of robbing the cradle. Thanks, Mama. I'll take that lesson to heart.
