This was so powerful, Sara, and a wonderful tribute to your fierce, opinionated, and feisty mother! It takes gumption to stand up to people and I admire her for that (especially as someone who has never sent back food--I even choked down rock hard gnocchi during one of my last restaurant meals when 9 months pregnant!).
