Ring. Ring. Ring.
I pick up the phone.
"Mom's in hospital up in 69 Mile."
It was Kitty's voice.
"Reggie called to tell me to pass along the news.
Mom went over an embankment,
Broke her wrist and had her face roughed up.
Reggie went over the bank with her
And may have broke his thumb."
"How are their martini glasses?"
"Total write offs."
"I guess that makes their Christmas gifts
Easy to choose."
