It’s my mom’s birthday today… I haven’t written a lot about my mother. I probably should.
Back in the day she was at the airport in Montreal when the Rolling Stones first came to Canada. She also sat about an inch away from the television screen and watched them on the Ed Sullivan Show. She liked the Beatles, but preferred the Stones. She’s always been a rocker.
Anyway… in a few hours I’ll be at the flower shop, and I’ll get a card and I’m looking for something else as well. Last year I got her a decent sized pink fuzzy bear with “Love” tattooed over its chest. It also had a pink toque with a heart.
So if anyone has any idea better than that… cough, I’m sure my mother would appreciate it…
And for anyone willing to play along on this sacred No Post Day, what have you bought your mother lately? Or, what have your kids bought you that made you think, for at least that moment, it has been worth keeping them around?
