My Mom Can Handle It

| Related | January 13, 2016

(It is the early 90s, and both my mom and I are active in the local computer bulletin board (BBS) scene. BBS users are usually known by a handle instead of their real name, so I have friends who don’t know me by my real name. One day, the phone rings and my mom answers it.)

Mom: “Hello?”

Caller: “Hello, is [My Handle] there?”

Mom: *to me* “[My Handle], you have a phone call!”

(I take the phone.)

Me: “Hello?”

Caller: “Your mom is awesome!”
