That Day Again

My mother died about 30 years ago. Our relationship was, ahem, nuanced, but I can testify that she was a woman of formidable abilities and impressive achievements.  And, to be fair, wanted nothing but the best for her children.

But along with all else, she had a scabrous sense of humor and I bet she would have enjoyed:
All right lady, I'll buy those lousy poppies;
All right lady, I'll buy those pencils too.
All right lady, take off those old dark glasses:
Hello, mother, I knew it was you.
Oddly enough, I can't track down a YouTube version.
