...the doctors have proclaimed that my mother, at age sixty-nine, has the blood pressure of a sixteen-year old and the strength of a horse. And that's what she is. A Horse, born in the year 1918, destined to be obstinate and frank to the point of tactlessness. She and I make a bad combination, because I'm a Rabbit, born in 1951, supposedly sensitive, with tendencies toward being thin-skinned and skittery at the first sign of criticism.
