This morning as we chatted about nothing and sundry, my mother brought over a cup of pull tabs from aluminum cans. She asked me if I’d heard about saving them so that someone would get a dialysis machine. Before I could say anything, she went over to her desk and pulled out a print out of this column to show me that it was bogus, but that my father insisted on saving them “just in case”
No, I didn’t tell her about this board - last thing I need is worries that my mom would learn all the twisted and lurid details about her first-born. Still, I thought it was neato beyond words that she’d found her answer here. I took the liberty of telling her about snopes too - I’m going to add it to her Favorites list.
So, anyway, I just had to share. Obviously, my Mom has her stuff together - yay Mom!
Is it any wonder I’m the terrific person that I am?!?
I think it is great that your Mom checked this out before combing the neighborhood for more pop tops. I had to drag my Mom kicking and screaming into the 21st century, but she has adjusted well. Dad, on the other hand…
That’s pretty cool. I just hope to God my mom never finds this site. As if I didn’t get enough shit for not going to Church anymore, to think of what she’d get on at me about if she read a hundredth of what I’ve posted here.
