272. Nancy

Day after her wedding, my new mother-in-law dissed me. “Oh, we have one of those in the family,” she singsonged when I commented in a political discussion. I sat, stunned and speechless, while the conversation continued on. A dreadful beginning.


I totally feel for you.

Oh yeah. I had that experience once - piping up at the dinner table that I'd like to go to the pro-choice rally...the whole table got silent. That's when I knew I was "one of those."
