Call Your Mom – Vampire Verisimilitude

If you’re lucky enough to have a mom you can call, do it.

BuffyTheMasterShareNone of our residents have parents still living, and while many hold out hope that their sons or daughters might call, this usually isn’t the case. We’ll be doing something for all of them later this evening — as we do every year.

I’m talking to our staffers and supporters: CALL YOUR MOM.

Yes, you. It’s important, all right?

I’m also among the fortunate. The few Vampires I do associate with lost their mothers decades or even centuries ago. There’s a real fear among Vampires of what they might do to known relatives and especially their parents, possibly even a new Vampire’s first kill; I know what I’m talking about. Fortunately, Vampires and humans alike can use a modern invention called “the telephone” to wish moms everywhere a safe and death-free holiday.

I know there are exceptions, but this is for everyone without an excuse who keeps putting off those calls.

Pick up your phone. Press the digits. Say hello. Share.

Ask them how they are. Listen; don’t talk. Answer their questions if they ask.

You only owe them your life. Some of us never get that chance.

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. I’ll call tonight — I promise.

You, too, Juliette.

Keep each other safe.
