Everybody's a critic.


My mother called yesterday.

I'll leave it to you to imagine the 2.5 second delay between her comments and my stunned replies.

"So," she said, "Are you running spellcheck when you write your blog?"

"Of course, I'm doing a spellcheck." Why?

"It just seems that I remember a spelling error last week--or maybe it was just a poorly constructed sentence."

This would be that 2.5 seconds of silence I mentioned.

"I'm sorry," I finally said, "Did you say a poorly constructed sentence? Where?"

"Oh, I don't remember now."

Hmmm. Do I hear that the leaf doesn't fall far from the tree? Somebody's Mom

I certainly hope that's true. There are worse things to be than like my mom--er--tree. Of course, you might be of a different opinion if your name is Muffin Uptown.
