... who worked in our high school cafeteria and she was a true Southern woman. She was a curvy woman and witty and friendly to her co-workers and students alike. Kind of the antithesis of women outside our hometown of Washington, D.C. She was slightly out of place~ either a transplant from somewhere down south or a true southerner who was a native Virginian from before this area became "Northern Virginia." We used to walk through the lunch line to get our lunch and she was always chatting and talking to us unlike most of the ladies; I looked forward to seeing her. One day, a group of us were standing in line (early and patiently) waiting for the lunch ladies to start serving food and she said one of the funniest things I've ever heard in my life and never forgotten even 20 years later.
She said, "It's so quiet in here, I could hear a flea piss on cotton."
And that my friends, is how it's been around here.
I'll be back soon.
