Mother's Day Gift

El Manana conducted a little survey concerning gifts for Mother's Day. Here's a hint: it's not something for the kitchen. Woman want jewelry, clothes, or perfumes. Flowers are also acceptable.

I'd get my suegra a Sonora Santanera LP but I think she's got 'em all, and Laredo is not exactly flush with vinyl.
For my mom, I might get her a blouse or two. Y para mi vieja, well, I already have something for her. I have a feeling she's going to like it.

Come to think of it, I shouldn't have bought her anything since I got her U2 tickets. Sure, the show is in October, but it still counts.


  1. ___wife and i went shopping (no school) in nuevo laredo for a while yesterday in one of the local superstores, not Waaaaaaalmaaaart). and they had these little packages of pre-wrapped gifts para la Mama on her day. Solo eran planchas, sartenes, cafeteras, vacuums y escobas. No perfumes, aretes, o joyas para la madre mexicana. I guess socially we ain't making much progress.

  2. My wife is an avid baker so she doesn't mind getting kitchen gadgets, or odd-shaped pans, but this year I'm going with something different.
