Today would've been my mom's birthday.
Actually, it still is. But she passed away a little over five years ago.
She was old school. She didn't think anyone had any business asking how old she was. So, when anyone ever asked her age, she would usually reply with,
"Thirty-Nine. Ish. Give or take an ish."
And boy, howdy, she took that with her, too.
On her headstone reads:
Claire A. Tucker
19?? - 2011
Badass to the end and beyond, Mom!
