The First Time Mom Didn’t Recognize Me

Mom and I way back when.

Caught Off Guard

More Uncomfortable Silence

I can’t believe that happened.

That must have been horrible for Mom.

She didn’t just not recognize my voice, she didn’t believe it was me.

Is Mom ok?

Could my voice have sounded different?

Am I congested? Do I have allergies? Do I sound different?

She’s on a landline, so it had to be my reception?

Was my reception bad?

Will she recognize my voice the next time?

If she doesn’t recognize me on the phone, how will she recognize me in person?

Will she remember my kids?

I can’t believe she didn’t recognize my voice.

Did this just happen?

What do I do?

I need to tell her doctor.

I can’t believe that happened.
