A mother's place is in the wrong. Guiding principles:-

  • You cannot apologise enough
  • You cannot apologise too soon
  • You would imagine, therefore, that you cannot go wrong if you apologise before you do whatever-it-is in the first place
  • Sleep is no defence
  • If you don't replace the screw in the 11-year old's glasses at 6.10 am on a Saturday - in your sleep - you will assuredly be accused of screwing up his life when he's 13.
  • Appropriate sincerity and contrition can be acquired at drama school. Justify the expense by calling it continuing professional development.

hugs! It really cracked me up, all the same. I'm heading out to book some drama courses.
