A Veritable Star

I’m at work, anxiously awaiting news of her English GCSE result….My heart skips a beat when she calls…

Daughter: Got an A star.

This mother’s heart skips another beat….

Me: I am so so so so..proud of you !

Daughter: It’s no big thing mum.

Me: No big thing!? You got an A star!

I can hear her smile…

Me: Don’t pretend you’re not chuffed..

Daughter: Mmm.. ‘chuffed’..can’t say I’m familiar with the word mother.

Me: I know you’re pleased no matter what you say.

A long pause..

Daughter: I may have accidentally..

Me: What?

Daughter: Hugged a few friends at school.
