Publisher's Summary

Southern society is arranged along matriarchal lines, since the Southern matriarch is a far more formidable being than the much nicer Southern male. She has to be this way; she was put on earth with a sacred mission: to drum good manners and the proper religion---ancestor worship---into the next generation.

In Some Day You'll Thank Me for This, Gayden Metcalfe and Charlotte Hays, the best-selling authors of Being Dead Is No Excuse and Somebody Is Going to Die If Lilly Beth Doesn't Catch That Bouquet, deliver up a hilarious treatise---complete with appropriate recipes from those finicky, demanding moms---on the joys, trials, and tribulations of being the daughter of a Southern mother. Including such chapters as "A Crown in Heaven---The Southern Mother's Ultimate Passive-Aggressive Fashion Accoutrement," "Grande Dames and Other Mothers," and "Grandmothers: Why Precious Angel Baby Grandchildren Are So Much More Fun Than Granny's Own Bad Children," this is the perfect gift for any Southern mother---or the daughter of one.
