birthday girl

OK, so a few weeks ago – Mum saw an iPhone holder she liked for her phone

One of those arm band ones, that you wear when you’re jogging

Yeah, I would never need one either

So I grabbed her one, with the intention of giving it to her as part of her birthday gift

Also a few weeks ago, Dad was wondering out loud about what HE should get Mum

I said there was something else I knew she’d like, that I could order online and get it sent straight to their house

I won’t write what it is here, ’cause it hasn’t arrived yet – and there’s just not enough surprises left in the world….is there Mum?

Anyhoo – I ordered said pressie for Dad to give Mum

Everyone sorted, right?


Here’s how that shit goes down in my family

I Skype Mum last night for her birthday

She hasn’t opened her gift from me yet

But proceeds to show me what Dad got her

Imagine my ‘what is this fuckery’ face, when she holds up an iPhone arm band holder

I’m like, DAD…do you not remember me showing you the one JUST LIKE THAT that I got Mum?

He’s all, wuh?

I said, REMEMBER, we ordered YOUR gift for Mum online – it’s coming in the mail

He’s like, we did?


So that’s where I gave up

Congratulated Mum on her TWO new iPhone arm band holders

And told her she could have one for each arm now

She suggested that she give one to Dad and he could go running with her

Luckily he didn’t hurt himself too bad when he fainted

I still want to be her when I grow up….happy birthday Mum!


PS – Enjoy the day off they gave everyone in your honour (and for that other chick too)
