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 therefore no "man from u.n.c.l.e.", "the farmer's daugher", and "my mother the car" to be watched, which pulled the carpet right out from under the ”good old days”, making them just the “old days”—no different from the iron age really.
