An SMS exchange with my father (since I don't actually have my mom's phone number - I'm a horrible daughter. Old news. We're Finnish - deal) on Sunday 3rd May 2009 at 11:24PM Finnish time:
The Bad Daughter: Hope you are well! In case it's Mothers' day today a bunch of hugs to mom, if it's not then when exactly is it?
Father who was woken up by the SMS because he normally goes to bed around 10PM and who has never thoroughly embraced the SMS functionality on his phone: In a week.
The Bad Daughter: Good Night
The Father who was once, years ago, woken up by a frantic overseas phone call from his daughter concerning a certain elusive PIN code to a Visa card and a motel bill that needed to be settled right a way, to which he accidentally answered with the wrong number and then spent the next half an hour pacing the hallway waiting for his daughter to call back from the pay phone somewhere in Downtown Denver: Good Night
And we haven't even touched upon the subject of the daughter's travels onboard a greyhound bus, thrice across the American continent when she was just of age.
Any mothers' or fathers' day gift ideas?
