What to get Mom, part deux: Amazon comes through again


I’m so glad you all got a kick out of yesterday’s post, where I talked about the wacky Mother’s Day gift suggestion Amazon sent me.  (Pole-dancing lessons would be considered a crazy Mother’s Day gift, right?  Based on some of your comments yesterday, I’m not so sure, LOL).

But we’re not done yet!  Today, Amazon emailed me more suggestions, sure to delight Mom on her special day.  I just had to share!



Sometimes these posts just write themselves.  I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.

So, let’s see if I understand Amazon’s marketing message here: we can make Mom feel really special (read: sexy) by treating her to a boudoir photo session (if Mom is smart, she’ll never show these pics to her children…my eyes! Gaahh…).

But Mom has a practical side, so we know she also wants a clean home.  See how fiendishly clever Amazon is being?  To show Mom we really care, we have to buy both the boudoir session and the air duct cleaning.  That way, Mom can relax in her boudoir, the photographer snapping away, knowing her ducts are being cleaned at the same time.

And maybe later, she’ll go out for a pole-dancing lesson. 😉

Happy Mother’s Day to special moms everywhere!

Until next time,

    Can’t we combine the pole-dancing and the boudoir photography, like that scene with Jamie Lee Curtis in True Lies?

      Paul Owen! You are giving your staid and proper wife a bad rep for keeping company with racy manly-men.

      Pssssst. For a small retainer fee, I’ll keep you apprised when she’s acting up in comments on other blogs. Let me know…

      Do. Not. Tell. KB.

        Gloria, it will be our little secret, because, you know, the internet is such a great place for keeping secrets…

        Um, Gloria…do you really have the time? She kind of acts up A LOT.

    OMG, Kathy – A boudoir ‘photo session? Really? Ooooh-kay. Well, let me not be judgemental. But still, can’t see my daughter being comfortable getting that for me. Only Amazon…

    Okay. I’m sitting here with visions of Wallowitz (TBBT), or Raymond (Everybody Loves Raymond) deciding what to purchase Mommy for Mother’s Day.

    Does. Not. Compute.

    Boudouir pictures? I think not.

    Me? I’m holding out for Laser XL spa treatments to fry those derriere dimples. Tweet me when you get that offer on Amazon, K.B.

    Have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

    Well, Amazon will never be accused of failing to think outside the box.

    LOL Love Andrew’s comment!

    I ain’t gonna tell you what unclean innuendos came to my mind regarding cleaning air ducts. 🙂

    Next thing you know, Amazon will be suggesting a vajazzling kit for mom. Good gravy! We’re all bleaching our brains now. LOL.

      I think this comment was inspired more by Natalie Hartford, than by me. Geesh, I get blamed for EVERYTHING…
