What Else She Said

My mom is the coolest... she feeds everybody, she likes all my friends. She's just the greatest mom ever. She packs me lunch. It's incredible. And she puts in a 50-60 hour work-week. It's impressive.

My Aunt Mary is another one of my role models because she's one of the strongest people I've ever met. She's lost so many people in her life. She lost one son to AIDS, she lost another to a motorcycle crash when he was 18, she lost her husband to brain cancer, she lost her father to throat cancer. She's just lost a lot of people. I'm an atheist and she's very staunchly Catholic... She's the kind of woman who goes to church on Wednesdays and Sundays. I don't believe in God, but it's incredible to see someone who could lose so much and go through so much and still think that whoever's controlling the universe just loves them. You gotta respect that... The women I respect most are the women who have gone through an incredible amount in their life and are still ready to meet the world.
