My Mother the Italian Opera!

If you think I can’t shut up, wait until you meet her! She’s mad, loud, and proud! All the time 24/7! She’s Italian, once the hands and the mouth start going it’s like a Italian opera. Haven’t you ever heard the expression “it ain’t over until the fat lady sings”? Well, it’s not true, cause once this woman gets going it never ends!
"That is what you are going to wear when we have special guests coming to dinner tonight? Good friends of your father and I and you think you’re going to wear that? You look like a hootchie momma."
