My mother doesn't usually call me early in the morning unless she really needs something (she knows how much of a morning person I am NOT), but her voice didn't sound urgent when she said; “I didn't wake you, did I”? I told her I had been awake long enough to have done three loads of laundry and asked if everything was OK; mom said everything was “fine”. I asked how her breakfast had been; “fine”. “How did you sleep”? I asked; “fine” was the answer. I could tell by the way she was answering that something was NOT fine and wondered if she was going to make me ask 20 questions before telling me what it was.
