moms plus email equals great fun.

Cool Mom

Boys and girls, I may have discovered my new favorite website: postcardsfromyomomma.com. The website allows people to upload actual emails from their mothers for our viewing pleasure. As the daughter of a momma who sends very interesting texts and emails, I can certainly appreciate this site. (She loves middle-school IM lingo like brb and lol and where r u.) And although my mother is extremely entertaining, it is Kelsey’s mother who sent the best momma text message known to man.

You know how moms write as if text messages, IMs, and emails are real letters? Well, Kelsey’s mom was sending a text to Kelsey’s brother and attempted to start it with a cordial “Dear Warren.” Unfortunately, predictive text got the best of her, and she accidentally sent the message early, so Warren received the following message, unprovoked, in all caps:

FEAR.

Excellent, no? Makes me laugh every time.

oh mal, i don’t like blogs.

Mom

That is what my mother said to me this morning when I told her that Kathleen and I started a blog. The convo went a little something like this:

Me: “So, Mom, Kathleen and I started a blog.”
Mom [in hushed, dramatic voice]: “Oh Mal, I don’t like blogs.”
Me: “Sigh.”
Mom: “Can’t weird people, like, find you and get attached to you?”
Me: “Well, yes, but only if they find the article where I posted my social security number and home address.”
Mom: “Oh okay FINE.”
Me [in a display of maturity]: “Well, I’m just not going to tell you the name of it, then, so you can’t find it.”
Mom: “Is there something bad on it?!”
Me: “Yes, Mom. We’re running an amateur kiddie porn site. NO! We’re just writing about…you know, whatever we want to write about.”

Then I told her a little about the McCunt post, and the hilarious video to go along with it, and she laughed and said she wanted to read the blog. I think we’ve got a convert.
