First I have to say that I'm just loving hearing from all of you Brady Bunch nuts out there. Keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on leaving comments about your favorite episodes here ... or just read through the comments. They're guaranteed to bring back warm Brady memories -- or perhaps slightly painful flashbacks. Long live Johnny Bravo!
Same goes for the misunderstood lyrics. We're still getting some good ones. Check in with those here.
Now for my main point: Mother's Day. If there are any women out there wondering if they should have children, I say, go for it ladies! Why? Well, sure, there's all that stuff about your heart overflowing with unconditional love, witnessing the miracle of life, blah, blah, blah, but the best part is you get your own holiday! That's 24 hours when everyone is required -- perhaps by law -- to be nice to you and give you stuff. It's like having a second birthday, only it's better because you get reinforcement from the greeting card industry, restaurants, and jewelry stores. Finally, that 27 hours of labor pays off!
Jay and WCB took me out to Mimi's Cafe (Official Motto: "If the muffin's not the size of your head, it's free!"). We had a great time. This was the first time we let WCB eat real people food from our plates in a restaurant, but we forgot to bring her big bib. By the end, she was completely covered in bread crumbs and watermelon juice and was laughing like a mad scientist.
Then Jay and WCB gave me the Best. Present. Ever: A gift certificate for a massage. If any of you men out there presented your wives with, say, a pair of gardening gloves or any form of power tool and received a less-than-warm response, I have five words for you to carry in your hearts until next year: Gift Certificate For A Massage. I can't wait to use it. Woo hoo!
