Mmmmmm... not even if that person is your mother? And she has a headache? And you have been talking non-stop for the past 45 minutes?

It's more of a figurative silence... But no, when Johnny Rotten has "just one more thing" to tell me and it's 10:15 at night, demanding silence is the friendliest thing I can do for/to her.

What's that one, silence is golden? Whoever said that had no children. I don't know about your girls, but mine NEVER stop talking. They even talk in their sleep.

Very funny post. I hope your headache went away without someone being sold on the black market. ;)

Okay, I'm reading all of your posts (found your link on Dooce). I'm lauging. Iced Tea is coming out of my nose. I think I snorted. And then I see that you live in Minnesota, as do I. So the story about the affluent Minneapolis trophy wives and their botox? I totally get it.
