“Hi Michael, it’s Clare.”
“A phone call! What’s up?
“I need your help. How about a road trip?”
“Medical or musical?”
“Medical. Remember when you called me crazy the first time I asked you to get from the floor into your wheelchair on your own?”
“Well, I have a young lady that added ‘bat s__t’ to the crazy part. She’s fully capable, but won’t even try. I think you’d be able to get through to her. Besides, I want to meet Tessa.”
“You know Tessa’s name?”
“Yeah, from your Mom’s Facebook page.”
“Figures. How soon are we traveling?”
