When your mom is slightly crazy and never throws anything away:
A copy of The Boston Globe Magazine from November 1993, with a cover story about the former headmaster of your high school.
The coverstory's original title?
Tough Love at Latin.
What your THEN-42-YEAR OLD mother has changed it to:
Tough SHIT (this is on a little piece of white paper, meticulously cut out and SHIT is not just capitals, but in square bubble letters) at Latin.
When I first saw this, I assumed it was something Robert had done. Then I showed it to my mom, who is now 56, and she readily owned that the culprit was she. She remains quite proud of her work.
