I had a guy come over and fix something in my house today. I was out at a meeting, so my mom (who is visiting) was in charge of letting him in, showing him the "project" and locking the door behind him. No biggie, right? Well, when I got home and asked how it went my mom said, "well it took him about 10 minutes to finish the project and another 45 to debate politics with me before he left." Oh, Mommy!! Apparently, this fix-it man was (gasp!) a republican. My mother is no stranger to debates with those who travel along opposite party lines- and I love that about her. Never afraid to disagree or be in the minority, always willing to stand up and fight for the underdog. I have said it before, and I'll say it again: I got it from my mama.
