Apparently on March 19th of 2002, I emailed my mom a link to an article about how the Earth had almost been hit by a massive asteroid. I’m sure at the time I sent it I was laughing because she and I used to joke about a horrible sci-fi made-for-TV movie we saw in the early 80s about an asteroid.

Her response to me was:


This stuff is always good to know because we don’t usually have enough really good things to worry about – you know, aids, icebergs, pollution, cloning, product tampering, terrorism, job security, inflation, atomic war, Saddam Hussein, Osama, wrinkles, getting older, terminal diseases, dying, earthquakes, hurricanes, new Gator coaches, computer viruses…

love you,
