A Conversation Between Angels CVII

“Louis, what’s the matter?”

“All my life, when I was growing up. I didn’t want my mother’s cooking, I wanted peanut butter and jelly. She’d say ‘one day, when I’m gone, you’ll regret it.'”

“My mother said that too.”

“And then when I was older and she’s try to give me another helping, I’d say I don’t want to get fat and she’d say ‘one day, when I’m gone, you’ll regret it.'”

“She wouldn’t give up.”

“No. But it was true. And I missed her cooking for years after she was gone. And now I get here and she can’t cook for me.”
