Abstract

“The most offensive thing my mom has ever said to me followed her gifting me with a collection of Thoreau and a bowl of orange-lime sherbet. It all spawned from the actuality of me, my sister’s love of pissing off my parents, and the avoidance of an honest answer.”

"Sherbet," a creative nonfiction essay, explores the relationship between my mother and I, my sexuality, the way that I define myself (“actual Lindsey”), and the way I present myself by omission (“pretend Lindsey”) to make others comfortable.
