Thank you for teaching me what a mother’s love is supposed to be . . . and how to make a great pizza. I love you.

This entire situation, the one he was hired to deal with, has been a complete clusterfuck from the start.

“I’ll just tell them the status hasn’t changed.”

“I could’ve taken care of this,” I bite out.

“I know. I know.”

“And they wouldn’t let me.”

“I. Know.”

“I know
you
know. Try to impart some of that knowledge to
them
. I’m playing by their rules right now, but I’m starting to lose patience with their—”
