Author Essay

This book hits home in the passage about The Mother Mystique. The one passage I’d love to share is my mother’s metamorphosis with her physical appearance through the years. Of course, she had her role models, and by judging from her fashion tastes and family photos, my mother was carbon copy of the following women:

1959                  Betty Crocker (apron and waffle iron included).

1963                  Doris Day. This phase included a beehive do, box suits and pillbox hats. Que sera, sera                                         son.

1970                  It’s a story of a lady who looks like Carol Brady.

1978                  Schlemiel, schlamazel look at me I’m dressing like Penny Marshall.

1986                  Nancy Regan reds. Alternating with Barbara Bush blues. (Hairstyles not included).

1998                  Golden Girl wanna be. Mom’s outfits include Bea Arthur gray hair and designer seat suits.
