450. too many pieces of mom's mind

mom used to give us a piece of her mind almost on an hourly basis.
so much so that i began to worry that she was running out of brain, especially when she’d make wild claims about the good old days, when there were no tvs and no three stooges, which translated to no good in the good old days, just old days—no different from the middle ages really.

Yeah, but look at all the wisdom! Days before all the electronics crap were wonderful. You could hear children playing outside, and laughing. That sound has disappeared. I only heard it after Ivan (the terrible) hit the Gulf. No power. Kids all came out to play. The noise was joyous.
