Delta: Is today Mother’s Day?
Me: No, yesterday was Mother’s Day.
Delta: Mother’s Day is only one day?
Me: Yes. Only one day.
Delta. Only one day a year?
Me: Yes. Mother’s Day is only one day a year.
Delta: So only one day a year you have a life?
Me: (quiet, merges into traffic) Yes. Thanks for pointing that out, Delta.
Delta. (happily) You’re welcome, mommy!
