(Newser)   Mother of Mother's Day came to hate it. Anna Jarvis conceived the day in 1908 and got Congress to make it official in 1914. By 1920, she was so disgusted with its commercialization that she tried in vain to get it rescinded   (newser.com) divider line 13

I never spend much money on my mom.  Actually, I've been giving her the same present for the last 30 years, I send a raw egg to her third class snail mail.  By the time she gets it, it's rotten and stinks.  She gets the message.

I kinda hate it. I appreciate the idea, i like that my kids' Sunday School teacher had them sprout then plant sunflower seeds gave them to the moms. But, it's just another day, like your birthday, but now, like your birthday, everything has to be Pinterest-photo worthy, covered in fancifully tied mustard-colored chevron neck scarves, and captioned with a chalk board-painted reclaimed wood frame. It can't just be a handful of wild flowers, it has to be tied in vintage lace and actually the clever packaging for a diamond tennis bracelet and Himalayan Pink Salt and Tahitian Vanilla Caramel Truffles. And if you don't want that stuff in the first place, you get to see it all on Facebook, posts of pictures not even of moms and kids but of the loot they won (or probably got themselves, if only via Amazon Wish List) with the title "sooooooooooo blessed :) ;) XD

That's so sad.

Does anyone have her address? Maybe we can send her something.

Think how a Jewish carpenter from Nazareth must feel ....


Hello. It's nice to see you all here!.

We have a few preliminaries before I ask Peter to throw open the Gates of Heaven. To start with, how many of you celebrated my birthday?

How many of you celebrated my birthday in a spirt of giving and love?

Oh,that's lovely!

How many of you spent your time whining about how other people weren't celebrating it or not celebrating it righ or waging some sort of "War on Christmas"?

Well, not so many of you. That's good. Just take a step to your right please if you didn't whine about Christmas.

Now here's the question that divides my sheep from the goats, so to speek.

How many of you celebrated Christmas in the commercial and greedy spirit in which it was recreated by my half-brother, Stan, AKA Satan?

Well, not so good. Would you please step to your left. To your other left. Thank you. Yes, that's good.

Now stand still while I pull this comically big lever and turn the sidewalk you are standing on into a Giant Fun Slide! Yaaaaay! Fun slide! This is the most fun you'll have in what's left of your life!

Good, now the rest of you can come in.

Gotta love my mom. I called her this morning and she said before I could say anything "don't be wishing me anything on this fake-money making holiday. You tell me you love me on a regular basis and that's all I need". Then she went on how she took her shirt off last night cause she lost at poker. Thanks mom.

Huh. That's unusual for a woman to not think something through.

With a Jewish mother?

"My friends have lovely grandchildren. Have you met any nice girls lately? No, no, I'm just saying. Having no grandchildren, it doesn't bother me, . That's just my cross to bear."
