Mother's Day is right around the corner. So, what do you plan to get MOM this year? It is always difficult, because at least at my age, most mothers have everything they need.
The old tried and true flowers and candy is really boring. One year, I bought MOM a perfume that was made by the girls at All My Children. It was quite comical and she hated it- so that was the end of that.
Perhaps, I should go crazy and get her some men's jewelry. That would probably get her attention, but not be very practical.
So, what is practical and fun? Well, maybe a phone call, a little conversation that doesn't include family illnesses or tragedies - and does include meaningless talk about favorite soap operas and the idiots that are running the country.
