November 18, 1998

Babi, my grandmother, said, "I love to hear you smile," listening in on my and Mom's conversation. Obstruction cleared, Mom is home from the hospital and back on solid food. The saintly woman who sometimes cooks for her made pasta. Mom treated her to an aria. Everyone's happy today because my expecting sister heard her third child's heartbeat for the first time and I confirmed my flight for Thanksgiving. After I hung up, the garbage disposal got stuck. (It's the only one in the building -- consolation for not having a balcony.) We fished out the beercap -- smashed flat and rusty, it wasn't even one of ours. But now the IN-SINK-ERATORTM works like a charm.
