"My momma always told me that you have to be a lady to get ahead in life. No one likes a vulgar woman, she said."
"My momma was like a pretty bird in a cage, singing the songs that she'd been taught, and teaching me the same ones. How to laugh and smile at their jokes, and never disagree with anyone about anything. She says it's the only way to get through life as a woman. I never told her how much I hate biting my tongue."
"For a long time I still tried to be the lady that she wanted to me to be. But then, one day, I realized something..."
"I don't always have to be good anymore."
