*memory*

"Frozen orange juice is more healthful," my oh-so-progressive-beyond-her-time mother of the 60's would always say.

"But the astronauts drink Tang . . . in space," I think I was able to stammer out only once.

"Well, then, there you go. We're not astronauts, are we?" she answered in a tone that suggested I was a complete idiot, as she tossed cans of orange juice into the cart with long, efficient fingers.

Ah, the cold logic of mothers.

I wonder how accurate your "portraits" of your mother really are... because she... or at least, the "she" of your childhood... as delineated through your occasional terse reminiscences over the past few years, appears with crystal clarity in my mind's eye.

Lotta round cardboard tubes of frozen orange juice at my house, growing up, too. And no Tang either.

(Got Space Food Sticks a few times, though!)
