With Mother's Day under one week away, I was thinking about the ideal gift.
Aside from a weekend away, a new car, a $100 Starbucks giftcard and an iPhone (I'm a woman of simple needs), I can think of one, very inexpensive thing I'd like to receive: the gift of time off. Time alone. Time to browse a few stores, sit in a park reading a magazine, get a pedicure, hire a horse and carriage and a pack of circus clowns for an hour - whatever. The location and the activity don't matter so much as the fact that it's time off, without responsibility, if only for a few hours.
So, dudes, if you're running low on inspiration, here's an idea for you.
And ladies, if you suspect your significant other is lacking inspiration, feel free to cut this out and subtly stick it to the fridge, the car hood, the underside of the toilet seat, or whatever.
