TaraShea Nesbit

  • ... our husbands said we talked too much. They accused us of asking questions that were too obvious, or too personal. Secrecy, like cocktails, like smoking, like wearing overalls, was the new habit we acquired.

  • If our husbands were drafted, or our brothers, we hated the term theater to describe parts of a war. If we did not have anyone in battle, or if we had generations of men in our families who had been in battle, we loved the term theater, and we thought it conjured both the drama and the artifice.

  • How much was parenting like warfare? Digging trenches, changing diapers, gunfire, or a child's head hitting the corners of a coffee table — hours of boredom followed by seconds of terror.

TaraShea Nesbit, U.S. writer

(1981)
