Oh oh smother me mother.

No. I'm not that popular.

 

All of these missed phonecalls (15!) are from my mother.

 

What was so urgent?

 

The fact that I didn't answer my phone on the first call.

 

I heard her on the third ring (it's Interpol's 'Evil" by the way). I had to sing along at the end with Paul ... "San-dy, why can't we look the other way..."

 

A brief three second pause followed before that ring started up again:

 

"It took a lifespan with no cellmate, to find the long way back...."

 

*My mind wandered to silly thoughts of having Carlos D.'s hybrid baby... it's actually very amusing to think about.*

 

Around the 8th ring, it became officially awkward.

 

I hate when she does this.

 

She even called my home phone. I'm thinking I will have to play one of her answering machine messages on my next podcast -- just so y'all will believe me. Plus you get to hear my mom's voice, which I'm pretty sure isn't what you'd expect.
