Postcards from yo momma
You know when you find something online thats strangely mesmerizing even though its without any real news content but you still have to spend hours looking at it?
That was our experience yesterday with this new site Postcards From Yo Momma, which is a collection of emails from peoples mothers (with names redacted, of course) in all of their crazy, nagging, non sequituring, random glory.
To wit, they have the poorly relayed assessment:
Here are the results of todays lunch with the prospective groom: I think he is not for you: He is kind of short although he is really nice, but my gut feeling is you will not click with him. Also he is not bad looking at all.
So dont accuse me with all the accusation you dump on me all the time. In the mean time you can meet him if you want.
I guess Ill elaborate when I talk to you. Love, Mom
The never ending reminder of people you went to high school with:
I also saw an engagement announcement for Dan [redacted]. He is living in FL near grandma. Wasnt he on the cross country team?
The too close for comfort interest in your personal life:
Here is the email and cell phone # of the nice girl I made friends with at the gym. She is there every day at 5:30 and then commutes to NY. She is 25, and the thing that impressed me was her friendliness and kindness. She always answers my questions with patience and a smile, even though she is there to work out herself. If you want, contact her. Her New Years resolution is to have more fun.
What is it with mothers, or shall we say people of a certain age, that turns their communication skills to mush when they get in front of a keyboard? Is it because they werent there at the creation of this here Internet Age, and never really caught up?
