I received a frantic voice mail from my mother at 6 a.m. this morning. It amounted to call me a.s.a.p. urgent. I called back expecting some horrible tragic news. It would seem that she had an unpleasant encounter with my 66 year old brother. He is a drug addict who has shifted his addiction from heroin to religion. It is a strange cult like group who feel they are the only people who can save the world from their wicked ways. My mother is a 90 something active alcoholic who thrives on hostility. Apparently she decided to bait him into a religious debate last night while deep into her cup. The result involved the police threatening to lock my mother up if she did not stop swinging at my brother ( I'm trying really hard not to laugh my @$$ off over that visual.) I listened respectfully and said nothing. My phone is now off due to the never ending voice mails from the both of them trying to get me to side with them. Geesh high school drama at its worse. Lord help me.
