The first time my mother caught me singing, she slapped me across the face. Then, as I stood there shocked and stinging, she grabbed my shoulder and looked me straight in the eyes and said, "Don't you ever, ever do that again."
She caught me at it again eventually, right about when I'd just turned ten. This time she just gave me a long, silent look, with her lips pressed together into a hard, bloodless line, and then at last she said if I kept doing this, the Angels were going to come and take me away and there would be nothing she could do to stop them. "Nothing," she said. "Do you understand me?"
