Blessed are the cheesemakers

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…

    hahaha. that reminds me of when my brother fell off his bike and got a concusion on my mom’s birthday (which usually falls on or near mothers day). my mom spent her birthday in the hospital with my brother asking the same 5 questions over and over: “what happened?” (you fell off your bike) “oh. was i wearing my helmet?” (yes) “did it look cool” (haha) “what day is it” (may 14th) “oh thats mom’s birthday. did i get you anything mom?”

    Would you believe that Life of Brian is only playing in ONE movie theater around here? And by “around here” I mean, not even on Long Island at all! It’s in one theater in the east village. I could just buy the DVD for the amount of money it would cost me to drive in, park and pay for the movie and obligatory popcorn.

    Hmmm…. That’s an idea – I lost my VHS copy years ago.

    But I SO wanted to see it in the theater!!

    One theater in the NYC area – what’s up with that???

    Oh – hope Whiny’s okay. Head wounds bleed like a sonofabitch. But, I have to ask. Did he just walk into the thing?? I mean – it’s a telephone pole…

    It’s only playing in one theater around here, too. It’s at the place that plays artsy independent stuff. I thought it was going to be back in “real” movie theaters, too. Oh, well. This place is way cooler. I got to spew Guinness while watching it. 😀

    Whiny is fine. “It’s just a flesh wound.”

    He didn’t hit the pole, per se, but a metal box that was hanging at just above the level of his head (or so he thought). A group of punk kids came barreling up the sidewalk behind them, and he jumped out of the way and misjudged the height of said box. He took the corner of it on the top of his head. And, though it did bleed profusely, it was just a scratch.

    Of course, they turned around and came home to clean up, but what was the first thing he did? Jumped on IM to tell his friends he had blood on his face! Kewwwwwwwl.

    Ya gotta watch out for those metal boxes. They jump out at you without any warning!

    Glad he’s ok!
