Look what popped up in my inbox today:
The last time I was dangling like that I was wearing plaid shorts and scuffed tennies, my hair in braided pigtails, looking for a lost tooth on the playground. I’m sure my toes weren’t pointed. They didn’t call me “klutzy Kathy” in school for nothing.
So, is this is a suggestion for what to get my mom, or is Amazon thinking I’ll be dropping hints to my own kids? (Option 2 is definitely NOT happening, LOL). And it’s prefaced by “Make Mom Feel Special.” What happened to macaroni necklaces, handmade cards, and breakfast in bed?
But hey, maybe I need to be more “flexible” in my thinking, so here’s a message for my mom:
Feel free to let me know in the comment section if you’ve had a secret hankering for pole-dancing lessons. I’m still looking for gift ideas. I’m sure Dad wouldn’t mind (he might even want to watch, in order to
mock youkeep you safe). Maybe it would be even MORE fun if you can get some of your pals to join you, like the lady with the hip replacement…and maybe that other lady with the oxygen tank….
Love, Kath xoxo
So, what’s the craziest gift you’ve ever given or gotten on Mother’s Day? Have you ever wanted to take pole-dancing lessons? I’d love to hear from you.
Wishing all of the mothers out there a well-deserved day of appreciation!
Until next time,

I don’t know what I’m getting for Mother’s Day, but I sincerely hope it will not be pole-dancing lessons. I got my mom tea and note cards.
LOL, Steph, sounds like a great choice to me…I love tea! And I’m sure your kids have more sense than to give you pole-dancing lessons. Have a wonderful Mother’s Day! 😉
My mother would DIE! Either when she saw the gift…or when she fell from the pole. LOL. What were they thinking?!!
I know, Julie! Pretty crazy, huh? 😀
I guess I haven’t gone too crazy with gifts, and neither have my kids. Or hubby, who has needed training away from the idea that Mother’s Day cards are for his mother, not his wife! But oh, Kathy, you made me laugh with this one. All I get are ProFlowers pop-ups.
Hey, flowers are good! They won’t land you in the hospital, LOL. 😉
Well now, that’s different. What does Amazon know about you Kathy that your loyal followers do not? Hmmmm. Me thinks there’s something you’re not telling us.
Let us know next week how the lessons go. (wink, wink) Even Klutzy Kathy must have a secret fantasy she’s dying to try. Well, the secret’s out now. I want to see the pictures.
And, do you think my mom would still like a macaroni necklace? Because I can make that happen.
Thanks for the fun.

Sometimes that Amazon logorithm is WAY out of whack, Patricia! I haven’t grabbed a pole since I’ve ridden Metro, LOL. 😉
Am I the only one who takes public transportation simply to entertain strangers by flipping upside down and grabbing poles?
Oh! You meant those metal poles they put there for balance, didn’t you? I was thinking more of finding cute dudes, and…
Is no one else dying over this sentence??
“I haven’t grabbed a pole since I’ve ridden Metro, LOL.”
Why am I the only one on the floor over that? It’s hysterical. And just crying out for an IYKWIM…
LOL, Jenny, my humor is sneaky-ninja…I let y’all put in the IYKWIM… 😉
Nice to see you here. Hope you’re feeling better!
Hahaha! I think that was supposed to be for me. I’d love to try the pole. Alas, I don’t think I could lift myself up. At all. Happy Mother’s Day, Kathy. 😉
Hi, Renee – maybe the cosmos is starting to get its wires crossed, ever since we started channeling each other’s #tribalchix tweets, LOL. I could see you doing this! Happy Mother’s Day to you, too!
Really, Kathy? Pole dancing lessons? Yikes. Honestly not something I would think of for giving or getting when it comes to Mother’s Day. But it is really funny. Thanks for sharing. Oh, and Happy Mother’s Day!
Thanks, Margot! And, yeah, don’t know where the ‘Zon got this idea, LOL.
For $22, I would happily give you pole-dancing lessons for Mother’s Day.
~ your loving husband
Of course you would, dear. You can close your mouth now. 😉
ROFL. My son’s got a weird sense of humor but even he would NOT get me pole dance lessons for Mother’s Day. Thanks for the belly laugh, Kathy, and Happy Mother’s Day to you!!
Happy Mother’s Day, Kass, and thanks! 😉
Hilarious post, Kathy. Even if I did have the upper body strength required for pole dancing, I’d still have to pass on it. No desire to try it, and if I did, I’d end up being the one needing a hip replacement! Happy Mother’s Day to you!
You, too, Lynn! Hope you had a lovely day. 😀
LOL! Man, I am jealous, and slightly offended that Amazon hasn’t suggested such a special to ME. 😉 Kidding (though pole-dancing is on my to-do-soon list… Yep – ‘s gonna be dangerous!)
Hope you’re having a brilliant weekend! You deserve the best Mother’s Day ever—with or without poles. 😉
August, I’m shocked that you haven’t been offered pole-dancing lessons by Amazon. What’s the internet coming to? Maybe Amazon goes for us un-hip, suburban mommy types. 😉
Good grief, that is an insane ad. Pole dancing lessons as a gift for your mother? What will they think of next. Let me know how the pole dancing lesson go Kathy! lol. 🙂
LOL, Karen – I’ll go if you go! 😉
I might be too old for it but hey I thought I was too old for zip lining but I did it over the rain forest in Costa Rica so … I might give it a try. What the heck, I heard it’s a great way to lose weight. The problem would be hefting my weight upside down. ha! Now if someone hauled me up the pole, maybe . . . Nah, that would just be embarrassing! Think I’d rather opt for a buffet Sunday brunch. 🙂
Yeah, the brunch would be more my speed, but how cool that you went ziplining in Costa Rica! That must have been amazing. I’ve been ziplining…in West Virginia. Doesn’t have quite the same cachet. 😉
I would solove to take pole dance classes. Sadly, I have no children, and I try to hide my
wild sidepenchant for adventure from the stepchildren.
Think of the possibilities! In a one hour session upside down, I could reverse the impact of gravity.
At one hour per day, 4 days per week, it would take a mere gazillion years to regain my perky…[insert anything related to cheeks (both varieties), breasts, or face.]
The goofiest Mother’s day gift I ever gave? I purchased terry-cloth fabric and a pattern to make Mom a new bathrobe. What happened to her old one remains one of the Sacred Secrets of The Burns Girls Sisterhood.
If you haven’t already guessed, you don’t know me.
Action lagged intentions. I wrapped the fabric and the pattern, and let her make her own robe.
LOL, Gloria – sounds like your childhood was as adventure-filled as your adult years! I’m sure your mom thought of you every time she put on her sew-it-yourself robe. 😉
