Mother’s Day

“My mother clung tightly to her over-the-top Boston accent (every kid in town had an impression of her in their repertoire) and was always quite pleased whenever it annoyed the town natives who turned their noses up at anyone foolish enough to not have landed on the Rappahannock River with Captain John Smith, therein making them a “come-here.” She was an obstinate, proud Yankee who wasn’t the type to take shit from anybody – this was, after all, a woman who once told Robert Kennedy to go to hell after he accidentally stepped on her foot.”
