I call mom. Hi, mom, I say. Happy Mother's Day. Who is this? she says. Mom, it's Joey. You have the wrong number, she says. She hangs up. She likes to joke, my mother. I call again. Hi, mom. Happy Mother's Day. No, seriously, she says, you have the wrong number. I do? I say. Yeah, she says. You're funny, ma, I say. You're real funny. Have a good one.
