I just saw my mom speak at the New School in a panel about all the new social programs passed by Obama. She faced off against the token republican guy that used to work for the Bush administration on welfare policy. ooooooh! Seeing my mom talk brought back many childhood moments of sitting and watching her receive awards and talk about how poor babies need clothes. I remember when I was in high school thinking she was a saint, but when I went up to congratulate her tonight she remembered it a little differently. She said when I was seven after some event I went up to her and said, "You're dead meat, mom." I was such an angel.
I wonder how I will annoy my own children.
