Today is Swedish mother’s day and I got one present from my youngest son a day early when I picked him up yesterday afternoon.
Mamma, I got you a present.
(digs in pocket)
Here! It’s mascara! I found it just sitting on a wall by the street. It’s still got some in it! I thought you could use it to color in your eyebrows! You’d look cool with black eyebrows!
A young man with a finely balanced sense of frugality, occasion and familial responsibility. If only he’d thought to charge you the full retail price he would certainly have had his own hedge fund by the time he was 30, as it is he will probably have to settle for a career as a venture capitalist. This boy has a future!
Grattis på mors dag !
