apparently, my mom was sitting in a recent professional training
session that required the group to recite as many facts as they possibly
could about Abraham Lincoln. My mom raised her hand and rattled off a
bunch of them: 16th president, born in Kentucky, raised by his
stepmother because his mother died when he was young, murdered by John
Wilkes Booth, whose brother, Edwin, was also an actor.
Someone in the group asked how she knew all that.
Mom shrugged and said, "I dated him in high school."
Ladies and gentlemen, if you ever wonder where I get it- this is where I get it.
