REASONS AUNT KAREN IS MY FAVORITE
My Mom's sister Karen is also my boss, and one of my favorite people on the planet. She's hilarious, courageous, and inspiring.
- •She has lots of great sayingsLike, 'it's colder than a witch's tit' or 'if I were 10 years younger, we'd be going to fist city over him'
- •She's a handThe greatest compliment that you can give a cowboy is to say he's a hand (it means handy & useful).
- •She's toughWhen she had her hip replaced last year, she was back up on her horse in 18 days. 18 days!
- •She's unthinkingly charitableMy Mom won a set of new dishes in a raffle and gave them to Aunt Karen since her dishes have seen better days. When I asked her the other day where those dishes were she shrugged and said, 'well, I gave them with the donations for the fire victims this summer, they need them more than I do'.
- •She loves her animalsAnd they love her.
- •She laughs at my lame jokes
