On Mother's Day

Is this the gayest present ever or what? She's going to love it just based on how it looks, I can tell you that already. This was a very carefully chosen Mother's day present. D and I decided that we'd give her a movie oriented present as she got a DVD player for Giftmas and has yet to get any DVD's for it. In the gift bag is actually two different sets of goodies, the first comprises the DVD's for Gone With The Wind and The Color Purple, two of her favorites, and a pack of Kleenex ;-) - the second is a movie theater popcorn box with two packs of microwave popcorn and a bunch of her favorite candies. She's gonna dig this for sure.

I have a great story to tell about my Mama to give you an idea of what she's like, and it may give a better idea of why I am like I am being that she raised me. This is a perfect illustration of her, it really is. A couple of months ago I suppose, my sister Shay and her friend took Mama to the movies. Shay finally got tired of Mama's pestering for them to go see Brokeback Mountain, so off they went. Ever since I first told her about this film, she's been chomping at the bit to see it, but at the time she still lived upstate and it wasn't playing there. Anyway, they go to see it and just after the scene where Alma (Michelle WIlliams) says to Ennis (Heath Ledger) "You don't go up there to go fishin'", it got very quiet in the theater and Mama started laughing and yelled rather loudly "THEY SURE DO! SHORT POLE FISHIN'! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!" My sister said the entire theater was in uproarious laughter. Have I mentioned that she's 74 years old? That's my mama, alright.

So for all of you Mothers out there, be you actual ones, figurative ones, would-be ones, whatever - Happy Mother's Day... *warm biscuit love*
