Momma always told me, “Be a lady”
cross your legs only at the ankle
speak softly and respectfully
never argue or shout, make your
point then walk away from a fight.
Usually, I can and do. But there
is no holding back when I’m in a hurry
and the car ahead idles under the green.
Then I sedately roll down my window and
respectfully articulate my request
(with a polite tap of the horn or two)
“Move your bloomin arse!” Please.

    Nice girls don’t … Your mother said … I like those thoughts, some mothers are nicer at etiquette than others. My mother often told me, “You won’t find nice a girls in a bar.” I really didn’t go to bars but I am not sure she knew that for sure. I never said I didn’t and can’t remember what I did say.
    Aside, it may have been me you honked at when I was on Vicodin. I would sleep though green lights, run red lights, or drive through and not even remember even when I should have turned. I think I was safe though.
