My mom and I talk almost every day on the phone. It usually goes like this:
me: what's up?
mom: not much. what's up with you?
me: ohhh nothing.
Followed by a recap of the latest issues and events. I've taken the liberty of tracking the most recent subjects that we've touched upon, to serve as a valuable historical record for future generations.
