Today at Ann Sather's

Today, my mom and I had a late breakfast with Aaron and John at Ann Sather's on Belmont and when the topic of my step-mother came up, my mother had this to say...

"I talked to someone your step-mother went to high school with and he said that if she had as many dicks sticking out of her as she's had stuck in her, she'd look like a porcupine."

Poetry.

Sheer poetry.

Like mother, like son.

In her bitter, newly-divorced days, my favorite conversations with Mumsie always included a few choice words from her about Daddy and the Step. We all get along well now but, wow, back in the day...! :-)

LMAO! Your Mom is simply priceless and you can tell her I said so.

Is your Dad still married to the same woman he was back when we were in school? Hell, I remember us making fun of her.

Wanda was Wonderful! I only wish my mother was so brilliant.

Yes, that line of her's IS hilarious, its the definition of Southern Charm, and Aaron- - well, let's just say that the day my mother, father and stepmother get along, pigs will sprout wings - - "They'll be pork in the treetops come the morning" as Kate says in THE LION IN WINTER.

Whim - She's the same as she was back then. Only wider.

The the best thing anyone's ever said in the history of human kind. You should be very proud. I know I am.

Alex - I am SO very proud!

If only mama had good knees - - we'd be quite the memorable team on The Amazing Race!

The sound bytes alone would get us on Letterman!

Or at least The Blue Collar Comedy show...
