Things that remind me of home...

A quote from a book:

"But the rules said that you didn't talk back to your parents, even when you were thirty-one years old, even when they were being rude and completely unreasonable."

Yes, I was reared with such rules.  Yes, I am 45 years old and still tend not to talk back to my mom.  I'm still afraid she's going to smack me across the face if she doesn't like what I say.  And the last time she smacked me, we had some Words.
