A Knee-Jerk Reaction

| Related | May 9, 2014

(My mother is in the hospital recovering from a knee replacement. I have explained to my much younger half-brother that she is in the hospital. He apparently went home and told my stepmom about it, because I got a panicked text from her the next day.)

Step Mom: “Hey. Is your mom okay? Your brother said she’s in the hospital.”

Me: *surprised that she’s showing concern* “Yeah, she’s fine. She just had a knee replacement. Not a big deal.”

Step Mom: “Oh. Good. He said she had a fake leg.”
