Southern society is arranged
along matriarchal lines, since the Southern matriarch is a far more formidable
being than the much nicer Southern male. She has to be this way; she was put on
earth with a sacred mission: to drum good manners and the proper religion—ancestor
worship—into the next generation.
In Some Day You’ll Thank Me for This, Gayden Metcalfe and Charlotte Hays, the bestselling
authors of Being Dead Is No Excuse and Somebody
Is Going to Die If Lilly Beth Doesn’t Catch That Bouquet, deliver up a hilarious treatise—complete with
appropriate recipes from those finicky, demanding moms—on the joys, trials, and
tribulations of being the daughter of a Southern mother. Including such
chapters as “A Crown in Heaven—The Southern Mother’s Ultimate Passive-Aggressive
Fashion Accoutrement,” “Grande Dames and Other Mothers,” and “Grandmothers: Why
Precious Angel Baby Grandchildren Are So Much More Fun than Granny’s Own Bad
Children,” this is the perfect gift for any Southern mother—or the daughter of
one. Download and start listening now!
