My mother stammers when she is nervous. She says a string of unintelligible and unrelated words. We all do this, except all of us isn't my mother. What I'm saying is, I like watching her when she's nervous, when she knows she's cornered or when she knows she made a mistake (who decides what a mistake is?), she tries to compensate by talking and talking, and laughing a little. I wish she knows she doesn't have to apologize for her mistakes. That all of it is compensated for, because she is selfless, because she thinks of us first all the time.
