I was never worried or scared about the situation because my parents did a great job raising us to respect all people. I remember in our little movie theater in town, th...

I think we need to clarify. The breaking of the lamp, while outwardly being accidental- was subconsciously done on purpose because the soft glow of electric sex in the window was not her idea of a family Christmas.
