Mama Dearest


Dearest Mother,
You nurtured me, cared for me, and raised me to be the fine upstanding citizen I am today.  You gave me unsolicited, though very helpful advice like staying away from boys who drive Japanese sports cars with vanity plates.  You kindly overlooked those late night, incoherent voicemails I left you from college- I swear I haven’t even had a sip of Jagermeister since.  And you’ve started using “the Facebook”, even if it is because I didn’t call you back that one week and you were checking to see if I was still alive.  Yes we’ve had our ups and downs, Mom.  But you have always been there for me.  My rock.  My beacon.  And for all these reasons you deserve one awesome kick-ass Mother’s Day gift.
