As I was blogging, Dad spooned sugar on his midnight-Eastern snack--Frosted Mini-Wheats--and Mom and Melissa tied ribbons on wedding favors for sister Caroline's upcoming nuptials.
"Mom, you're immortalized on the blog, you know," I mused aloud.
Melissa adopted her mimicking-Mom-falsetto. (It sounds remarkably like mine.) "You be nice on your blog."
"I never said that," Mom said.
"Yes you did," I said. "Those are your exact words." Melissa agreed.
"Did I really?" Mom confessed. "Well, I am turning 55."
"Not till next May," Melissa said.
