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!
