> My mom has a great sense of humor. Exhibit 1: While I was growing up, she had one of those classic ‘70s t-shirts with a message about sex. As you can see above, it says in sparkly silver, red, white and blue: “Sex is a misdemeanor - de more I miss, de-meaner I get.” As a seven year old, I didn’t pay much attention to the message, although I did like all the glitter. She wore it all the time, and when at some point I realized what it meant, and I was both horrified and amused. Since we are Jewish white trash, she never gets rid of her clothes, she still wears that t-shirt today, which I love.

Yes, that is my mom, and she is awesome.
