  •  There's more than a steely glare & response (7+ / 0-)

    You need to hear it when you're a kid - or even an adult.

    It's not about being needy and hearing an elicited response.  Fishing for a compliment, as it were.

    It has to be freely given, with no expectations of immediate acknowledgement or receipt.

    Otherwise, it's no more than a Bill Cosby "I brought you into this world, and I can take you out."

    If my mother had ever asked me, "did you ever doubt it?", my response would have been in the affirmative.

    "Mitt who? That's an odd name. Like an oven mitt, you mean? Oh, yeah, I've got one of those. Used it at the Atlas Society BBQ last summer when I was flipping ribs."
