When I was a young man still living at my parents and dating, before I left for EVERY date, Stella would stop me, check me out to be sure that I was presentable, and say, "Frankie, remember, you have a mother and a sister". My response was always, "what's THAT supposed to mean"? "You know EXACTLY what that means", would always be her retort. And you know what? I did know what she meant. She was right. She always is.
