Sadako has a long-distance love affair with my mom, who is in the States. This started just recently, thanks to the Tango app. Every now and then they get to have a video chat session, Sadako using my iPad Mini.

It wasn’t so long ago when the two first “met” online. My mom was waving like crazy and saying all sorts of stuff, plus playing videos from “Yo Gabba Gabba” — and dancing along. I had to explain to my daughter who this strange lady was — every 10 seconds or so.

It’s sweet how Sadako has come to look forward to their video chats every week. It’s kinda heartbreaking, too, how they've never met in person, but — oh well — it’s better than nothing. 

Can't wait for them to meet.
