Ready To Run

When I opened my Gmail this morning, I had 21 unread emails in my inbox. A dozen of them came from my mother.

How exciting is that, huh?

They all read the same: “Don’t forget to buy me my trainers. Love, Mom.”

How could Raft3r forget?

Even before I left for the States, my mom has been nagging me about getting her a new pair of running shoes. She even sends me MMS of her preferred brands.

Raft3r’s mom can be pretty persistent sometimes, in case you haven’t noticed.

I tried looking for what she likes in the store but the search always turned out negative. This went on for weeks.

A day before I headed to California, I decided to do a last minute shopping at Arundel Mills.

Raft3r was not disappointed.

They finally had my mom’s Reebok sneakers.

I immediately made the purchase and called home to report the same. Mom was thrilled. She can finally retire her old jogging shoes.

Raft3r is now $50 poorer. But to hear the delighted voice of my mom from the other line is far worth it.

Post script: Obviously, this is an old post. It was written in Baltimore and never published until now.

Mama's boy, there's a cliche that says how a man treats his mom is the same treatment he'll give his wife.

Carol said...

I am scared to be a mother for I will surely be as nagging as all mothers are. But to have free hard to find trainers after sending only 12 identical emails, why not? Hehehe
