“Get the Google Docs!”
“Huh? You mean you want me to send you a document?”
“No! What are you, simple? I want the Google Doctors. Now! My whole internet is sick. Viruses and more. I don’t know what’s going on. Windows keep popping open on this old computer, and I think my laptop has a fever. It’s so hot that I can’t even put it on my lap.”
The young man shook his head.
“Mom, there aren’t any Google Doctors…”
“Don’t lie to me, college boy. I heard all about it. The Google Docs. Everybody knows about them. Even your poor old Mom who is apparently too stupid to understand computers or her son or –“
“Mom. Calm down. What do you want me to do?”
“I told you! I want you to call the Doctors. Make them fix my World Wide Web.”
He shook his head. There were a lot of ways to play this. He could try explaining. Like he’d tried explaining about firewalls. Only that had made his mother terrified that her computer was going to burst into flames. He could lie.

“OK. Mom. Here’s the thing. The Google Doctors are very busy. And they have a long waiting list to be seen. They wouldn’t be able to make it out here for weeks. But they owe me a favor. I can get them to come by and take care of this for you, but they have to think they’re doing it for me.”
“What do you want me to do?”
“Get a cup of coffee. Go to the library. Give them like an hour and a half. They work fast. And don’t tell anyone you cut in line. I’ll make the call now. Go grab your purse.”
She was halfway out the door when she turned back. He was prepared to accept her thanks graciously. He was looking forward to it.
“Son,” she said, “Don’t ever lie to me about the Google Doctors again.”
