Mother's Day will be here before you know it. I was just in, uh, the Library, reading and I'm shamelessly stealing this idea from my current issue of Real Simple (though I did have a similar idea WAY before this). Below are 10 questions to ask your mother (interrogate Dad too!). If you want to share them with me and the people who happen to trip and fall on to my blog, feel free to email it to me. Please don't post the answers in the comments section. I'd like to collect all the answers and post them up closer to Mother's Day (and Father's Day), so don't delay! If yo momma (and/or poppa and/or you) wants to remain anonymous, please make that obvious in the email. Otherwise, everything's game, except, of course your last name, address, bank account and SSN.
Tell your friends! Don't be shy! Hit my blog! Yea! Audience participation!
