Last night I was hustling over to parent council meeting at our school. I was late, and dreading what I was going to hear about budget cuts and layoffs. I called my mother to vent:
Me: It's so demoralizing. We just want our kids to have a good education and their teachers to be treated fairly. I can't stand it. I wrote a letter to the editor, which made me feel better.
Bad Grandma: What did you say?
Me: Well, nothing too dramatic. I had The Man Who Lives In My House vet it before I sent it off.
Bad Grandma: That's good, because you probably shot your mouth off.
