Quick Bite: If I Had to Choose

Anyu and I were talking one day after finding out that a friend from church lost her daughter in a tragic train accident.

My mother was discussing some of the funeral details, and then she looked right at me and said, “You know, it would be just terrible to lose a daughter like dat. But I mean, it would be even vorse to lose a sister. I mean, if I had to choose…”

Anyu, don’t even think about finishing that sentence.”

“Vhat? I’m just saying…I’ve had my sister my whole life! I’ve only had YOU for like tventy-sometink years!”

I’ll have to remember not to call my mom the next time I am dangling precariously off a cliff. Sheesh.
