Mo's Grandmother Was Mean


Monique Manuel is Cajun and so was her grandmother. Her grandmother spoke French and was a stoic unless at a funeral. 

She was also mean.

The first swear word she ever heard was from her grandmother. She was seven years old and the swear word was directed at her. 

Mo told this story spur of the moment at our show, she volunteered, was selected, and knocked it out of the park.

This story was told at the September 5, 2017 live Worth Repeating. This event was held at Brick at the Blue Star Art Complex
