Yes, it is true, my poor mother has a birthday dangerously close to Christmas. Poor thing has to share her birthday with the baby Jesus and everything.
But that is allright because this year she got the one thing that she really wanted.....a 20Q game!!!!!! My WONDERFUL boyfriend, WM
got one of these ingenious little electronic games for Christmas. For the uninitiated, the 20Q game actually plays that 20 questions game that most people used to play on road trips to waste time. "Which one," you ask. Come on, you know, the one where one person thinks of a person, place, or thing and the other person has 20 questions that they can use to find out what you are thinking. It really is quite fun.
Anyway, my mom began playing with his toy over the weekend. She became addicted immediately. Eventually, no one could even talk to her for hours at a time. But he left and took his toy with him. Heh.
After a withdrawl period, mom recovered. But the cycle will soon begin again.
