When Internet memes and moms collide…

14 Oct

Since it became apparent that my husband was going to keep me around for a while his mom kindly added me to her email forward list.  As if 10 forwards a day from my mom weren’t enough 😉  Moms are crazy for them!  Jean (Craig’s mom) and Big Mary’s (my mom) forwards run the gamut of:

  • Sisterhood: Sister day is every day!
  • Get rich schemes: Hey girls – Let’s see if this works! Bill Gates will pay you for forwarding this email!
  • Any and every cute animal picture out there…especially the cross species friendships:  The crow & kitten was a big hit.
  • The Irish Blessing:  Why save it for St. Patrick’s day?!  Just keep on sending it – every other day preferably!
  • Why women are better than men:  Heck, these are always welcome 😉
  • Cat diary vs. dog diary:  This one has been hitting my in-box since ’98.
  • …and more!

But today was a true milestone…I came upon a “Fwd:” from Jean.  All sarcasm aside it was cute to see how delighted everyone was by it.  What will they discover next?!
