Ashton Kutcher, just ruined Mother’s Day for us all. I mean, unless you have the budget of an A-list (He’s A-List, right?) celebrity and can afford to remodel your Mum’s house while she’s on vacay, then there really is no comparison. Game over. (Check out the story for yourself here.) Why even bother? You may as well just pack up and head home right now. How do you even try to top that?
I’ll always remember the first ever Mother’s Day gift that I bought with my own coin. I was about 10 and it was a serious step-up from my previous art class project that my mum pinned to the fridge.
ARE YOU READY FOR IT?
It was a portrait of three kittens sitting on hay bale. Oh no, this was even your regular run-of-the-mill picture. It was holographic. Hol-o-graphic. It even came framed too. She accepted it with open arms, and a great big smile and even hung it up that day. Behind the door. I’d point it out every time a friend came to visit, and demonstrated how it was holographic. We’d ohh and ahh over the different colours. Needless to say it was pretty spectacular for a 10-year old, and her friends.
This year, I won’t be busting out any Ashton Kutcher moves (You’ll have to wait for next year, Mum!), so I’m treating her to a nice lunch on the water, and we might go an see an exhibition at the MCA, and after, a spot of shopping because she’s in the market for a new watch. I’ve picked out a piece from Michael Hill but I’m still winning her trust back after kitten-gate, all these years later.
So, tell me Possum, what are you getting your mama this year? MC
