A mothers help

Wiggins, MS(Zone 8b)

Jennifer sprang to answer the telephone.

"Darling, How are you? This is Mom."

"Oh Mom," Jennifer said crying, "I'm having a bad day. The baby won't eat and the washing machine won't work. I've sprained my ankle and I'm hobbling around. On top of all this, the house is a mess and I'm supposed to have the Andersons and the Nicholsons for dinner tonight. I haven't even had a chance to go shopping."

The voice on the other end said in sympathy, "Darling, let Mom handle it. Sit down, relax and close your eyes. I'll be over in half an hour. I'll do your shopping, tidy up the house and cook your dinner. I'll feed the baby and I'll call an engineer I know who'll fix your washing machine. Now stop crying. I'll even call your husband Wayne at the office and tell him he should come home to help out for once."

"Wayne?" said Jennifer. "Who's Wayne?"

"Why, Wayne's your husband....Is this 0208 123 3749?"

"No, this is 0208 123 3747."

"Oh, I'm sorry. I guess I dialed the wrong number."

There was a short pause, then Jennifer said, "Does this mean you're not coming over?"
