Happy Mother's Day

For every Jason Voorhees, there's a Mrs. Voorhees.
We love you, moms, even if you make us totally psychotic.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers, and to everybody who isn't - well, How is your relationship with your mother? If you've got a great relationship with your mother, then by all means - indulge and show your affection. If not, ask yourself - Why? I'm not going to tell you that you must have a great relationship with your mother no matter what, because - let's be honest with ourselves - some mothers just drive their children absolutely and completely insane. Like, to the point that we'd rather put on a hockey mask, stalk horny teenagers, and chop them into tiny pieces with a machete than sit down at the same table with our mother and have a cup of tea. 

But you know, mothers aren't perfect. Sometimes they do their best, and sometimes they don't. You know... they're human... just like you and me. And so the saying goes, mothers are crazy because their children made them that way. As long as we're being honest with ourselves, let's at least take credit for the work we did as children to erode our mothers' sanity as adults. 

Anyway, I won't bludgeon you over the head with that tired old crap about how you should love your mother because it's she who gave you life - that shit gets pretty old by the time you're 15 - but I will remind you that life is precious and time is short. If you want your mother to play a role in your life, then you need to make sure she knows that she's invited to do so. After all, time is running out - it waits for nobody - and you need to make up your mind sooner than later if you're goint to extend that invitation. There might not be time to change your mind if you wait too long.
