Mother's Day is coming

Mother's Day is coming. How do I know? This is what I found on my desk when I got home from work yesterday.

Yes, when I see a Nordstrom catalog with a page dogearred I have been trained well enough to recognize this hint.

Husbands and sons, May 11th is Mother's Day. Make you plans now. Do it today. Give yourself time to avoid the overnight shipping costs. You don't want to be one of those guys driving around early Sunday morning looking for an open store.

I didn't mention daughters, because women don't need the reminder. Women are much more on top of these sort of things than men. Women can think about many things at once and look at a calendar regularly. Men, on the other hand, can think about one thing at a time, and that is usually something simple like "want food!", "mmm, shiny!", or "boobies!".

Now I just need to get my ass to Nordstrom for Michele's new purse and figure out what to get my Mom.


On a related note, Being Daddy once again describes the experience of being a father today better than I ever could. I guess being an English Professor has it's benefits.

Another new father site is Blogsprogs where three new fathers are describing their fun. Good stuff.
