I try not to use it.
I remember it so well from my own youth.
Gram patiently waits, knowing the answer, but also knowing my internal battle.
Finally, no longer able to keep the barrage of ::why:: at bay,
I open the antiquated shield like a trusty umbrella and say,
"Because I said so."

I was talking to my twenty-year-old the other day and when my mouth opened, my mother's voice came out.
