Your Mother was a Whore
I want to share something that happened to me while on FB.
A few days ago, I came accross an old friend from my childhood in Mexico. She is from the same village I was born, and we were neighbors. Last time I saw her was 25 years ago. We played a lot as little girls. Our mothers, though, hated each other and at that time, I did not know why. Without even knowing, we were rivals as well. If she got something, Mom got me something bigger or better.
Her siblings were the same age as my siblings, so they too, were best friends.
My friend's mom was a widow, and you know, in small villages rumors are bigger. It was said that she was a slut and that she slept even with married man. All the married women hated her. They even said that she would charge for sex; how else could she support her children?
She was a very beautiful woman, dark-skinned and the most incredible grey eyes I've seen. She looked like this woman,
only, she had grey eyes. As a matter of fact, when I saw Houseboat, I honestly thought Sophia Lauren was my friend's mom. Seriously.
Anyway, a few years later, after we had come to the U.S. I found out that she had slept with my father many times throughout the years, and that many thought my friend, who was the youngest, was my father's daughter. That's why my mom had hated her all those years.
So, a few days ago, while we were chatting on FB, I realized that she is a snob and very superficial. She talked and talked about her material things and all the money she has (her brothers are drug dealers). I was all, whatever.
But then, she tried to belittle me and worse, my mom! That really pissed me off! no one insults my mother! I'd never insult anyone's mom, not even if I dislike them? What fault is of their mother? So, I got angry and told her, "You know, my mom may have her faults, but she was always a good mother, and gave us good moral values. She raised us well, and took us to church. She brought us close to God. She was and is still a lady; your mother, on the other hand, was a whore, who slept with my father many times. They even say you're my sister. Don't you dare compare her to my mom.
Her mother did what she had to do to support her children, and I should not judge her. Now, I was not going to ever say that, but you know what? I got pissed. I couldn't stop, once I started.
Her mother is dead, and I know it wasn't nice to insult her memory, but you know what? As someone once said, "If you don't want people talking bad about you, why do you misbehave?" Her mother is dead, but she was what she was.
I know what you're going to say, "that was very wrong," and all that. I just wanted to vent. Thanks for reading.
