The scene: The Drama Queen and Miss Attitude are showing off their new “handshake,” a complicated piece of choreography, featuring hand grasps, dance moves, and the shouting of “You go, sistah!” and “You rock, sistah!”, when The Drama Queen stops to add yet another step. Once they get the new move worked in, and practice the whole shebang – once again – from beginning to end, The Drama Queen turns to me and says, “Look, Mom! We learned up a new part!”
Dear God, I love living in Small Town, Texas, but please don’t let my babies grow up to be hicks. Amen.
