Disclaimer: I am neither conservative nor liberal. I criticize both heavily. I never, ever vote for either Republicans or Democrats (and frankly, you shouldn’t either).
I have purposely waited a few months to post this, for reasons that will hopefully become apparent.
On Tuesday, December 12th, 2012, my 70 year-old mother and my 14 year-old daughter were in the car headed to the mall. They were going to go Christmas shopping to buy presents for me and other family members.
My daughter wasn’t in the mood. She complained to my mom that she didn’t want to go but my mom pushed it. My daughter complained some more, and eventually my mom caved. (My daughter is a pretty tough cookie.) They skipped the mall and went to a local Starbucks instead.
