My mother’s day card from the kid has a Coco Chanel quote on the front:
“In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.”
Inside, in H’s scrawl:
“That’s right. That’s the logic I have followed my entire life. Demand for a son is high these days and if I don’t want to get canned than I got to be as different and strange as possible! DO YOU KNOW WHAT I GO THROUGH!? I want to be a normal popular high school jock!
“Now that’s out of my system. Happy Mother’s Day.”
How I love him.
