I'm An Old Broad

Include me in the old broad category. There are few things scarier (pay attention NSA monitor) than an hormonally challenged, uppity woman on a fixed income who carries her own personal summer with her and has a working knowledge of personal weaponry. I can still drum up that "mad mom" voice that will send chills down your spine, and I'm not afraid to use it.


  1. Oh, Jen, that's not such a bad thing. Just think, you too can be an old hippie who is 17 at heart like I am.

    That "mad mom" look and voice has saved my hide many times. It's amazing how many adults respond to it as if their mom had done the same to them when they were children.

  2. Dis-belief at the fact we are carrying on two conversations on two different blogs.... or that I am an old hippie who is young at heart... or that the man mom look/voice is effective?

  3. Ya'll are crackin me up. The mad mom look just isn't as intimidating as my dad's (and I've inherited it proudly) freeze and rethink anything you thought you got away with in the previous week, fess up and maybe I'll forget what really set me off.
