Why I Put “Mother” On My Resume

I did something I've never done before today. I listed "Mother" as a job title on my resume.

Here’s a riddle for you: what do Christmas trees, “Free Mamograms Today—no appointment necessary” signs, alien yard decorations, and beer all have in common? Answer: NASCAR.
