Quaid picked up the call, “Jennings – Stanton, and Associates. How may I direct your call? Sure. One moment.” He punched the hold button. “It’s your mom. And I didn’t break Pearl. I told her she’s invaluable.”
“Oh, truth.” He popped Quaid in the head. “Go unbreak her.” He pressed the phone button. “Hi, Mom!” He chatted happily, his voice a warm sound in the background.
