My Mother and I

Updated: Mar 24, 2021

Please note: My mother’s first name was Georgette, and she hated it.

My mother was 19 when I was born. When she was 40 years of age, she did not like me marrying a man only 10 years younger than her. One day, in a heated conversation, she said “……… and he will call me Maman!”

Upon which I replied “That is fine, Maman. He will call you Georgette.”

This did not go over very well!
