Now, I suspect that most of us know someone who is a mom (or is like a mom). And it’s almost Mother’s Day! May 12th is the day to appreciate those wonderful women in our lives. Often, we do that with presents of some kind.
I’ve given various gifts to varying degrees of success over the years. To be fair, there are far fewer half-dead plants in disposable nursery pots nowadays… The thing is, I haven’t figured out what I’m getting my Mom this year… or what I should avoid. And I need your help.
What I want to know (from those of you who are over 13) is this: What is the best Mother’s Day you’ve ever witnessed? And, more importantly, which one was the worst (in a hilariously disaster-ful kind of way)?
I want to hear about the giant bird that pooped on your grandmother’s shoulder during Mother’s Day brunch or the shaving kit you were sure your wife would love as much as you did…
What is the reward for sharing this triumph and/or crippling embarrassment publicly on the internet, you ask? How about 25 WildCoins?! Tell us your story in the comments below (by Noon (12:00 PM PDT) Monday, May 6th) and you’ll be entered into a raffle to win 25 WildCoins!
You could buy the mother in your life an Android game with that! Or, you could keep it for yourself. I won’t tell… or judge.
I will announce the raffle winner on Friday, May 10th in the new Android games post.
Why didn’t I ever think about crowdsourcing Mother’s Day gift ideas before…?!
All right, there’s just one last piece of business. Thanks to all who participated in last week’s haiku contest! All of the poems were great and the competition was stiff, but the winning haiku of last week’s Polar Bowler: 1st Frame contest is:
White and fluffy bear
Soaring down the alley lane
I need better aim
Congratulations, Amber Rose Timmons! Your smart and funny haiku just won you 25 WildCoins!
We’ll be contacting you through email.
