Notes from the Motherless Society
I just watched Dave Letterman wish his 89-year-old mother a Happy Mother's Day on television and exchange I love you's. Betty White will guest host a Mother's Day special on SNL on Saturday. And there are ads splayed all over the internet, in print, on the soundwaves, and on television. Okay, I get it! Mother's Day is Sunday! Send your mother flowers, give her a hug, don't text her but call her or better yet, give her your loving messages in person! Please excuse my bitterness about the helliday. It's only the second one. I watched people being interviewed on television and one person spoke that she was going to go get a mani, a pedi, and go out to lunch with her mother. Well, isn't that nice. I remember all the times Mom and I would go shopping and then have a lively lunch or dinner. Sunday, just get here and get on with so you can stop torturing those of us sans mothers with your helliday advertisements-at least until next year. Hrumph. I'm going to turn off the tube and finish To Kill a Mockingbird. Scout also doesn't have a mother.
