Just a Minute (StoryADay blog post)

In a minute, everything changed.

I was just sitting at my desk when I heard the news that my mother had recently died.

At first, I didn’t know what to think. I mean, I just had lunch with her yesterday and she commented on my lack of a love life. I try to tell her that I don’t need one, but she’s right. I’m not getting any younger.

I know that we haven’t gotten along much when I was growing up, but still, how should I react to the news that my mother is dead?

I suddenly find myself weeping.
