the TV,
was on it's way out.
i told her that i had an extra television in my basement,
and that she was welcome to it.
she was going to measure the opening of her cabinet, so that we could determine if the new TV would fit;
my mother called me back today
it took her several minutes to find her notes
her glasses
her measurements,
she read them to me...

the TV in my basement doesn't fit.
