“I’m watching something really wild on TV,” Maga said.
“It’s red and white.”
“What? That does sound wild!”
“It’s hard to keep up with things these days.”
“Trust me. It’s hard even if you’re not almost 98.”
“Is it? Oh, good.”
We then covered the weather and family news (trips and roads and fender benders) as the snow fell softly outside. It felt right that I was experiencing weather with the woman who always asks me about it.
“Well, that’s about all the family news I have,” Maga said. “Have you heard from anyone lately?”
“Just the Seattle crew. They’re getting crazy snow right now. A lot more than we are.”
“Oh. I had heard about that today.”
We discussed the details of more family news (lumps of snow and lumps on ankles and igloos) and ended with a promise to see each other next month.
“You sound good. Keep it up,” Maga said.
“You too,” I replied.
