I should have been suspicious when my mother asked me for our new address. I suppose i was hopeful that she might be sending me a check!
I forgot all about it until last week an unexpected package arrived from who-the-hell-is-Meg-McMathers?
I had no clue until i opened the package and a funny old freshwater pearl necklace and a note popped out.
Turns out Meg McMathers is the name of an old friend of my mother's who has been married twice more since i last knew her, 40 years ago, hence my not recognizing her name.
Despite the fact that i was puzzled as to why the hell she would think i would want this necklace and why the hell she would send it to me, i sent her a nice thank you note, because without regard to what you may think, i was not born in a barn.
It must be that since i have forbidden my mother to give me HER old stuff, she's having other people send me theirs!
