From the book

My mother is everywhere. I can't believe I used to like it. I guess when you think about it though, why wouldn't I have? It was the most natural thing in the world when I was little. I remember in kindergarten this girl crying because she missed her mother. I didn't get it. I put my arm around her like I was so much older and wiser and said, "Don't worry. That's all right. Just turn on the TV. You'll see your mother then!" It was like having a magic mirror or a guardian angel or Santa's cell number or something. I could see my mother whenever I wanted.
