She sat among them-the mothers she had known for years. She had seen them at school events, awards ceremonies, field trips, parties since her daughter had started school, over twelve years ago now. She glanced over their faces, as familiar to her as her own, and smiled as she thought, “Damn, I hate these bitches.”

Well gosh. Want to hit this pillow?
Nice thing, Lola, is that it is all coming to and end with graduation. All the moms go their own way after that.
Ha,ha,ha-I wonder if I will chant this when I go to my daughter's graduation-next Saturday! I will think of you ;D
Mouse! Not sure I believe you ... Sure did enjoy your 55!
I can see you were tame for your daughter's sake! Lucky Girl. Congratulations.
ha!!! awesome ~
nice surprising rant. congrats to your daughter
Ha! I have a feeling that would be my reaction, too, what with my great love for humanity and all. This sets the scene, makes the point and skewers it, LM. Thanks for playing 55 with us.
What a great reason to celebrate... free of those bitches at last.. great piece.
Haha! I can relate. There is a lot one can let go when one's child finally graduates!
That was great! I think a lot more parents feel that way, than will admit to it.
Ha ha ha. Yes, I have three "promotions" to attend this week - lots of volunteering in the classrooms. I can relate - I have one other thing to contend with - I am often the oldest mom there - especially in the Kindergarten classroom! (gonna be 50 next year)
