Maybe I should just walk home.
Mother:Remember that weekend when your father
took you and melissa to D.C.? I stayed behind.
Mother:I said I had to work all weekend,
But that wasn't the truth.
I spent most of friday drunk.
Sunday I was hung over.
Saturday I don't remember at all.
Spencer:Okay, I think I actuallychanged my mind.
I really don't need to know.
Mother:I started at the club friday morning.
It was empty.There wasn't a soul to talk to,
So I ordered a sidecar,
Then another and another.
By the time lunch rolled around,
I'd walked through a trellis
and couldn't find my shoes.
It was Alex's first week there.
He kindly listened to me spill my guts,
And later poured me into a cab.
With my shoes.
Spencer:Why were you spilling you guys to Alex?
Mother:I had a doctor's appointment before I went there.
They removed a lump from my breast.
I was feeling a little overwhelmed...
