The last two days my mother and her sister have been busy calling me in order to get me to fix my mother's phone. As if I have a magic hotline to the phone-company, or extra-sensory technology repair-powers! (If I did, you bet I wouldn't be an underpaid scholar.)
This is why I am going as far away as possible now that I am starting to really feel the pressure of writing. There's always some similar emergency which I should fix.
