I’ve seen a few interviews with her and she comes across as fairly witty, so I doubt this was literal on her part.


Damn these comments are ridiculous. It goes to show nobody has read about the woman or seen interviews. She was just a very funny woman with a large sense of humor. No need to read into it so much


My husband went to school with her. He’s 5’8. Sat behind her. Couldn’t see the blackboard. Said she was a very nice person.
