I listen in on the karate moms regularly for material. Real life is best, right? Not always.
There is one particular woman I've watched for years, I call her Jack Sprat's wife because she is a plus size woman with a tiny, skinny husband. She speaks no qualms about this. In fact, she speaks so loudly on her cellphone in the waiting area that we who are also waiting feel bad for Jack because of the way she treats him. Or the way he allows her to treat him.
It's always the same thing, she calls to find out what Jack, a CPA, is making for dinner, inquiring if it's not something she's in the mood for. Really, at times, I think she's practicing for a reality show. Her daughters do karate and soccer and it's difficult to watch her communicate with her kids if they don't perform up to her expectations. She routinely tells them to "get away from me, you make me sick," or, "try harder, or else."
She sits at a table surrounded by other moms from her school who never, ever comment; they must be afraid of her.
I have a daughter that goes to school with one of her kids, and when I asked about her, my kid say "Oh she's cool, Mom, she's really tough, she can take anything anyone dishes out." I guess this is a plus in high school?
Any day now I'm waiting for the "What would you do?" TV cameras to come out and tell me she's an actress. But, I know she's not. Instead of mean girls, how's about mean moms for an on air topic.
