My mother was many things, loving, supportive, honest, loyal, capable and many more. But one of my favorite things about her was her irreverence. Don't misinterpret. What I'm talking about was an uncanny ability she had to do or say something so completely surprising that you were just, well...SURPRISED!
One of my favorite examples of this was what has become one of my favorite "Mema" quotes. Quite a few years ago, she was overheard to say (and said every year on this day from then on) "Hooray, hooray, The First of May! Outdoor Screwing starts today!" Til the end of my days not one single May First will pass without my thinking of her, and this, and smiling.
I love you Mema. Now and always.
