Really, Mom?

Most people recognize the hot pink Holt Renfrew bag as something that contains a luxurious treat, a gift that will elevate a birthday to another level, whose contents will bring a state of joy and excitement not possible by regular wrapping paper.  It's like the blue/green Tiffany box.  The heart quickens its pace.  The mind wanders to material fantasies.  The hands open it slowly to extend the pleasure.

And then.... pull out a pair of orthopaedic insoles.

Mothers.  Only they can get away with giving you a gift like this.  And so deceptively in a Holt Renfrew bag.  I pretty sure she thinks I was turning 71 instead of 31.

  1. Great. Now I've got the Killers in my head. This is what they were singing about, no?
