My mother likes to send me a plethora of articles and videos that she finds in her daily research. Neither my dad nor I know for sure what she's researching... but she's happy and enjoys writing comments on news articles (some resemble editorials), and comments on Facebook photos - I've asked her to save the humor (which reminds me of another video that she once sent me).
Although there's nothing quite like spam from your mother, I do appreciate her good intentions. Every now and then, she does share a winner and I will post it to my Facebook wall. Problem: she takes that as encouragement and then I get more... and more emails.
Sometimes, she will ask if I've read this article or that video that she sent. I will shrug and say no, and that I can't keep up with her and the barrage of emails that fill my plate already. But that's a lie, and I am confessing publicly. I read them and watch them when I get a chance. "So, thanks, Mom. I appreciate that you care to share."
This one I particularly enjoyed, and instead of spamming them to colleagues in the English department, I figured I'd take a few minutes and blog about it.
Hint to Mom: Start a blog. It's easy with Google Blogger.
I am hoping this post encourages her in a new way, maybe I will share her blog soon. Enjoy the video. Thanks again, Mom.
