Or maybe not, since obviously you anger easily... Edit: To the OP ~ I just realised that your location says Western...

Me: Yes DD: What's vis part? (pointing to clitoris) Me: That's your clitoris. Hasn't come up much since then. It is the one part that I do...

"Why the h*ll should I have to press '1' for English". Next to an American flag. Like pressing 1 is so inconvenient? Might strain a finger. OK, I guess some people need to advertise how bigoted they are.

I say that you have a heart to heart with you mom, tell her your concerns. Tell her you believe that if she loves you and the grandkids she will put your helath first. If she will not compromise, then it's time to take out all the stops and play it up. show up with some of those hospital masks and you and the kiddos keep them on 24/7 the whole time.
