It’s been a while since we caught up with mom.
I went out to Long Island yesterday but mom didn’t want to leave the TV. She was looking for constant updates on Joan Rivers’ condition.
Me: She’s 81, people don’t live forever.
Mom: But she’s thin!
Later in the afternoon:
Mom: Oh oh oh, shhh, Obama is breaking into Judge Judy. Maybe he’s going to say something about Joan Rivers.
While Obama spoke about Ukraine:
Mom: Maybe it’s because my father’s family came from Ukraine but I never liked the Russians.
Me: Trust me, the Ukrainians didn’t like your father’s family either because they were Jews so don’t feel such a Ukrainian nationalistic pride.
Mom: It’s true, nobody likes the Jews. How sad is that?
