As much as I hate to admit it, Mama is usually right. Especially when it comes to her little pithy words of wisdom. I have always rolled my eyes when she would tell me not to try to argue with what she calls ignorant people, a harsh phrase for my usually genteel mother. But to Mama, someone who is not listening to reason or seeing any other perspective is ignorant. She actually uses another word but that seems so harsh, and very un-Mama like, I can’t even bear to write it. While Mama would never call someone that to their face, or even behind their back, she would declare lack of engaging in a true discussion to be stupid.
