Here are some of the totally inappropriate responses that were going through my head as K, the Bad Mannered Mommy told her story:
- Uh-oh, my Yankee finger is starting to twitch! (referring to the middle finger, of course)
- The war has been over for almost 150 years. We're in the 21st century now. Duh.
- Excuse me, I need to cut up a rug and make a valise.
- You really don't get irony, do you?
- Since I'm from Pennsylvania, you'll understand if I call you a b***h.
- I hope your son marries a Yankee.
