My mother is quick-witted; she can think and respond quickly in any situation. I remember coming home very upset when I was in the 4th grade because another child had called me “a walkin talkin tootsie roll” in front of a group our peers; everyone started laughing and repeating the phrase. I was the only black child in the group, I felt insulted. When I told my mother, she immediately told me to call them a “rootin tootin turkish taffy” if the situation happened again. She has always had the ability to produce a witty comeback in any situation. She is very creative and talented; she can sew, draw, paint, or sculpt anything.
