On Mother's Day

Once upon a time, there was a nice little boy who came home from school bearing fresh flowers for his mother. When asked where he got them, he stated that he found them on the sidewalk. His mom became suspicious however when he came home the next day with more fresh flowers, which he also claimed to have found "lying on the sidewwalk". Come the third day, she was waiting and watching as her precious son came home from school, and she caught him picking a third bouquet out of a neighbor's flower bed. Needless to say, a door was knocked on and the appropriate apologies were offered, and the afternoon flower deliveries came to an end. But that incident has never been forgotten, largely because the mother still tells that story every chance that she gets.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom. Hope you enjoy the plant; I actually paid for this one.

And Happy Mother's Day to all you other moms out there.
