I can’t help but think of how proper my mom was all the time. One night a friend, Linda, came over for dinner, and the entire Marks family (15 people) was there. Unbeknownst to Linda, Mom had stayed up the entire night before cooking and cleaning.
During dinner Linda started to talk about her life and suddenly we heard a huge snoring sound at the table. All of us turned to see mom dead asleep. My brother, Robert, looked at Linda and deadpanned, “That’s probably a sign that you might want to jazz up your story a bit.”
