Conversations with My Mother

“A neighbor from when I was growing up found me on Facebook and started messaging me, asking how everyone’s doing. So I had to tell her about everyone who’s dead now. And then this stranger—well, she is, I haven’t talked to her in 30 years—asked if Uncle Gordon ever went to jail, because he always seemed like a ‘troublemaker.'”

Did Gordon ever go to jail?”

“Yes, but that’s not the point!”
