My mom hugged me with a squeal and great excitement today. It’s the third one I’ve gotten of this nature (the first two: 1) when I got accepted to Yale; 2) when I signed her up for a mega-cheap triple-play deal from Time Warner).
What did I do earn this shout-out? In short, I turned on her computer. The long version is they had a power outtage and it made their computer wonky. I unplugged it, replugged it, and it turned. Viola! She’s treating me like I’m a genius, and then promptly told me it was time for me to go home because she now had to watch her Korean soap online.
Ahh, the love between mother and daughter, it’s heartwarming.
