My mom left a voicemail for me last Sunday, and I didn’t return the call right away, so on Friday, I received a second voicemail from my mom wondering why I hadn’t called her:

Mom’s voicemail

I called her in the afternoon, and we had a long chat. I’ve broken it down into two parts, and keep in mind that Bonnie and Clyde are a pair of Shi Zhu dogs.
