You wake up to the sound of your phone ringing. It’s your Mother calling. She tells you that from now on, you are no longer part of the family. Your name has been removed from every household memory. You are no longer enrolled in her insurance. She has called your school and work to let them know it’s okay to separate you from others. But, she says it’s ok because she still tolerates you and is launching a campaign for people to like you in other countries. “Happy birthday honey,” she says, before hanging up.
