Stripper Mom was reminded of her past today on the drive to her step-sister’s house.
We drove through the valley along Route 8 and passed through Waterbury.
I remembered The Patio—a strip club that was also a restaurant where I once thought I was going to have to strip for a very elderly woman (her husband removed the unaware woman before the strippers started their shift).
And I remembered another Waterbury club, whose name I can’t remember, where the bar back kept sneaking a peek of me through a large crack in the dressing room’s door.
And at the moment, my children will not let me have two minutes on the computer: Cole sits on my lap kicking me and blubbering, and Genny will not stop saying, “Mommy, mommy, what does this say?” as she scrolls through the LOLcats on icancheezburger.
So I will end with saying Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there.
And a remembrance to my own mother…
