Consideration for Others
I just cleaned in here, kill each other outside-
Mumsie's 3 N's Rule
No Booze, No Sex, No Drugs-
Don’t make me pull this car over!
Just you wait until your father gets home-
When you get to be my age, you’ll understand-
I’m going to count to three!
It’s colder than a well-digger’s ass out there!
You are just like your father!
Close the door you weren’t raised in a barn!
Inside or Out!
You better pray this thing still works!
Why? Because I said so. That’s why.
Wipe that smirk off your face, or I’ll do it for you!
Sense of Self
And just who do you think you are? The Queen of Sheba?
Keep crying and I’ll find something for you to cry about.
Be quiet and answer me!
Sit there until I tell you to move-
If I told you once, I told you a thousand times-
Money doesn’t grow on trees-
Take a jacket, you’ll get cold later-
Mark my words. One day you’ll have kids that’ll behave worse than you-

Until I made friends beyond my Italian neighborhood, I had no idea Crème de Cocoa liqueur wasn’t actually a topping for ice cream—Gnocchi never made it on the menu at the first Thanksgiving dinner—or that the end of a loaf of bread is only known as the 'Culo' in an Italian household. Intrigued? Then kick back with a glass of vino and take a glimpse into my life growing up Nort’ side.
