Mom impressions

In the preview for Margaret Cho’s new "Cho Show," you get to see her mother, and hear her speak, and I was struck by how dead on Margaret’s impressions of her are. Sure, she’s exaggerating for effect, but the accent and cadence were uncannily similar.

And that’s when I realized that most of the women I know (myself included) have a similar ability to mimic Mom perfectly. My mom isn’t thrilled when I do it (I don’t sound like that!!), but she, in turn, did a great imitation of my Grandma.

So, Feministers — how about you? Do you ever mimic your moms? And guys, do you do Dad impressions?
