Anyway. I spent a lot of time fretting over the talk. And in my fretting, I came across an informative and amusing discussion about the traditional Mother's Day talk here.
I was touched by many of the comments and laughed hysterically at others (comment #21, for example. Oh so true.).
But my favorite quote on the post was at #53. Just sheer hilariousness: "I’m against handing out plants on Mother’s Day. That’s the last thing a mother needs, responsibility for yet another living thing."
Where do you stand on Mother's Day plants? For? Against? Indifferent?
