No, I would not have been that aware but that's one of the big reasons I try to raise my kid to be that aware.
"Nice people don't talk about (incredibly long list of things)" back in the 60s and 70s (and probably beyond). I think we have Betty Ford to thank for the fact that we'll talk about things now. (Thanks, Betty.)
I'm painfully honest with Mo about such things. Sometimes it hurts to admit to the things I've done and the things I've seen.
