Julkalendern #4

For at full day, I didn't know. I hadn't been home for seven months, and that afternoon - this is one of my regrets - I'd called to wish my parents a Merry Christmas when I knew my mother would still be asleep. This was after the big meal at Ben's family's house in Indianapolis; I'd been using the phone in the kitchen, and when I'd hung up I'd experienced a gut-wrenching sadness that I had mistaken for run-of-the-mill holiday sorrow. On the other side of the kitchen's swinging door was Ben's extended family: little kids hopped up on sweets playing with new toys while the adults watched football and lamented having overeaten.

"I'm so sorry, Daze."
"What happened?" I said.
"Oh, shit, I thought Vi reached you," he said. "Your mom died." I almost thought he was kidding, but then he began to sob.
 Ytterligare en deppig julscen! Men vad heter boken om de klärvoajanta systrarna?

Herregud! Måste sluta göra detta på min arbetstid. Det är i alla fall Sisterland av Curtis Sittenfeld säger Google efter ett antal försök!
