“Happy Mother’s Day, Mom”

My friend received this and only this text from her son during Frosh week this month at 2:45 in the morning.

Please know her nest is now empty.

Please know that she had heard nothing else from him.

Please remember that Mother’s Day always falls in May.

Every year, in fact.

The next morning

Sorry mom. My floor Don told us all that it was Mother’s Day.

So that’s two texts in one month.

But they were so substantial and informative that it seemed to hardly matter.
