The main drawback to being my mom’s size is that I can never say no when she wants to “borrow” something from my closet (with no intention of returning). How do you say no to a woman who carried you for thirty-eight weeks, was in labor for close to forty hours, and then allowed you to spend her money with impunity for another twenty-two years?


So I now find myself without a leopard coat and may just get a replacement or try something different. Suggestions welcome.
