Dad's phone bill arrived. Yup, near the 15th of the month, his phone bill hits my mailbox. Open it up and do a double take at the total due. That can't be right. I must have forgotten to pay his bill last month. Look at past due charges. Goose egg. I paid the bill last month so WTF? Long distance. Long distance $37.92 WTF? Don't tell me. She didn't. She did. Another call to Jamaica. Ma hasn't called Jamaica since October. Deep sigh, forlorn look. Guess this must be another one of those, "What the hell, he's paying for it!"

So all together now, "Hey Mr. Tallyman, tally me banana. Daylight come and me wanna go home."
