Do yourself a favor today: Open up your own diary to your mother in whatever form that looks like to you. Life's too short to hide.

Ours is a theater family. I have two sons currently studying theater in college, and as often as we can, we find our way to the theater. It was therefore no surprise that this mother would find herself in the audience of Terrence McNally's Mothers and Sons, sitting between her gay twin sons.
