Bonus Post: Happy Birthday Mom!

On this day, approximately 35 to 40 years ago (give or take), my mom was born. Happy birthday, mom! Please enjoy the totally obscure DVD I got you that I knew you’d adore because you spent the past 10 years searching for that one episode of that one show. I can’t believe that my horrible, evil older brother bought the exact same thing and gave it to you yesterday. I hope you like your new credit at Amazon.com.

  2. Good Lord! I’m the same age as your MOM?!

    That would seem to imply that I am also old enough to be your FATHER!!

    (pauses to take a breath from his oxygen line…)

    Crap! Way to make me feel like an old man!

    Guess I’ll just take my walker and go home.

    Seriously, you’re mom must be very proud of you. As a parent, I hope my daughter ends up (almost) as skeptical as you are.

  3. No offense to rebecca or her mom, but no way is she younger than 40. Unless she was still in highschool when she gave birth to rebecca.

    My guess is, the "give or take" is at least 3 – 5 years …
