Thanks to friends Ezra, Matt, and August, some people are actually reading this site! And one of them, Joseph Hughes, wrote to tell me that hey, he’s a 28-year old dude, and he talks to his mom everyday:
I probably talk to my mother every day, whether I really want to or not. Both my parents are, as you said, "with it," but I’d say the ratio by which I speak to both are 10:1 mom. … My girlfriend’s parents, on the other hand, seem distant by comparison, though I think it’s just because my mom is so "there" all the time. That said, I love her and really can’t think of her being any different.
Thanks Joseph. You’re a good son.
