I think we adequately met the needs of the central figure in the Mother’s Day ritual today. She cooked a turkey, cleaned house and took a nap while I played online video games. Yeah. Made sure she felt all mother-like.
The kids were going to sneak off to the Mall last night while we were out. They were going to spend their allowances on Mother’s Day presents. Unfortunately, they aborted that plan when, on their way to the bus stop, Whiny ran into a telephone pole, cut his head open, and began dripping blood on the sidewalk. So they made her cards like 3rd graders.
What, you might ask, could possibly top all that brilliantly special treatment on this sacred holiday?
Oh yes. You know.
We took her to see Life of Brian.
All is forgiven. She is one happy mother.
Always look on the bright side of life…
