Yowsah! I wuz shocked thinking that this wuz one of them thar MFWILTBL (Momaciter's for whom I'd like to buy lawngeReh!) public service announcements. But it's apparently a legit service for sons *shudder* and that's just a bit too heavy on the Siggy Freud couch side of life fer me.

If I'd ever purchased anything more intimate than *chocolate* for my mom, dad would've killed me. Literally.

My dog walker came to the door right after I found that and I was laughing so hard I couldn't talk :p

Can you *imagine* having to be told that? I didn't even read the whole thing b/c I was in the middle of something but it just struck me as unbearably funny. But then I am a bit twisted.

("Here, Mom! Happy Mother's Day!!!!"....

[THUD])

Bathrobes count as lingerie? I did learn something new today.

Posted by: Grim at May 13, 2008 02:34 PM

Caftans, too, evidently.

Coming soon: the Vickie's Seekrit line of designer (ooooh -- *footless*!) jammies...

Posted by: BillT at May 13, 2008 02:49 PM

An here I thought the gurlz liked the footie jammies.

Posted by: MikeD at May 13, 2008 03:03 PM

Not this gurl, old son ...

I like pretty things. They don't have to be x-rated (in fact, those things are a touch drafty) :p But I don't want to look like Grandma Moses either :p

Seriously, bathrobes and PJs and modest nightgowns are all lingerie, technically speaking, and all fine gifts. I think everyone knows where the line is.

Well then again, as this post illustrates...PERHAPS NOT! Heh...

Posted by: Cassandra at May 13, 2008 03:17 PM

What a hoot! I'm still laughing.

I keep seeing the Fruitcake Lady running around in something skimpy and red with "I've been a NAUGHTY GIRL - spank me!" printed on the fanny.

Posted by: Cassandra at May 13, 2008 03:21 PM

I will have you know, ma'am, that my wife LOVES flannel PJ's, especially if it has Hello Kitty on it! Sometimes frilly is nice, but comfy has its place too. So :P

Posted by: MikeD at May 13, 2008 03:22 PM

Nowhere there did I see an explanation of why one should buy his or her mother ANY kind of lingerie, ever. How 'bout some azaleas or something?

And what would constitute a "nice housecoat?" Isn't that an oxymoron?

Posted by: April at May 13, 2008 03:27 PM

Oh, I agree. I have one pair of red and grey plaid flannel PJ's with black velvet ribbon trim that I love. They are warm and pretty too. I've had them for years.

I just get impatient with too much material when I sleep. It gets all bunched up. This isn't a woman thing -- my husband is the same way. We'd both rather just throw on another blanket.

I love long flannel nightgowns, but they all that fabric drives me nuts so I almost never wear them.

Posted by: Cassandra at May 13, 2008 03:33 PM

I've bought my mother in law nightgowns before. I never know what to get her, so if I see something really pretty that I don't think she'd splurge on and it looks like her style, some years that is what I'll buy her.

Posted by: Cassandra at May 13, 2008 03:35 PM

Ah, ok...maybe a nice nightgown or robe, if you know she wears them. Anything more intimate than that, though, no way! :)

Posted by: April at May 13, 2008 03:39 PM

So if you buy your mother nothing, are you telling her that's what you want her to wear to bed? If so, my father would approve.

Posted by: MikeD at May 13, 2008 03:47 PM

So, I suspect, would most husbands :p After all the less you wear, the more incentive there is to cuddle up on cold nights!

And I agree, April.

Posted by: Cassandra at May 13, 2008 04:01 PM

I wonder if that would work on the Bride. "Duprise honey, I got you a new nightie!" "... This box is empty." "I know! Put it on!"

Posted by: MikeD at May 13, 2008 04:30 PM

And yes, I know 'suprise' doesn't have a 'd' in it. I'm gettin tired.

Posted by: MikeD at May 13, 2008 04:49 PM

"This box is empty." "I know! Put it on!"

That ranks with
"Here, hon."
"Aspirin? Why? I don't have a headache."
"Gooooood..."

Posted by: BillT at May 13, 2008 05:41 PM

but it does have two r's... "surprise!" ;-)

Posted by: Miss Ladybug at May 13, 2008 05:45 PM

It's sad that what was once common sense now has to be spelled out for some people...

When I was a kid, we got gowns and robes for Mom, and I know my grandmothers had received a fair number of the same over the years, too.

You are such a buzz kill.

Sons buying their mothers Lingerie?

GAK!

I think I need a bleach shower.

Posted by: Mike Wilson at May 13, 2008 06:28 PM

I think I need a bleach shower.


And a brain scrubber. And some Propofol.


Ick.

Posted by: HomefrontSix at May 13, 2008 06:53 PM

Being educated by you, Cass, is rather dangerous.

Posted by: Ymarsakar at May 13, 2008 07:16 PM

Oh, like I'm *so* sure, HF6. And you don't buy your Dad Speedos for Father's Day either...

Uh-huh.

Posted by: Cassandra at May 13, 2008 07:18 PM

It has never (not even once) occurred to me to purchase lingerie for my mother.

Somehow, I doubt that it ever shall...

Posted by: camojack at May 14, 2008 01:26 AM

I need some mental floss. You are SO going to helk for that one. I'll get you, my pretty! And your little dog, too!

Posted by: HomefrontSix at May 14, 2008 03:37 AM

The implied dare of "spd's law" notwithstanding (and just why the helk aren't you fussing at him? He provoked me!), I somehow managed to type that last without summoning that rather disturbing mental image :p

I keep seeing the Fruitcake Lady running around in something skimpy and red with "I've been a NAUGHTY GIRL - spank me!" printed on the fanny.

Just *what* sick, twisted, visual image caused you to conjoin *me* with the Fruitcake

Ummmm -- never mind.

Posted by: BillT at May 14, 2008 09:52 AM

You talkin' about mama? The woman is holy. Completely holy.

Posted by: Vinne Barbarino at May 14, 2008 10:00 AM

Deep Thoughts:

What kind of gift giving on Mother's Day inspired such an article? One wonders.

Posted by: Jacqueline Handy at May 14, 2008 10:04 AM

I can tell you what the Mormon equivalent of the 'wear nothing to bed' equivalent is:

Getting a lovely negligee for one's bridal shower with the hem sewed shut.

heh.

Posted by: Cricket at May 14, 2008 10:06 AM

I prefer to not ever know what my mother does or does not wear to bed.

Posted by: va purchase loan at May 14, 2008 11:09 PM

Shouldn't that be "Kill Bill", like the movie, rather than "Buzz Kill"?

Posted by: Ymarsakar at May 17, 2008 08:35 PM

As long as you keep it fictional, Ymar. Got enough people trying to do it for real in These Here Parts...

Posted by: BillT at May 18, 2008 02:02 AM

Isn't it a good thing when the Taliban converge on ya when you have close air support?

Posted by: Ymarsakar at May 18, 2008 01:00 PM

Taliban's about Iran+Afstan to the east from here -- We get presents from al-Q here.

And I *am* my close air support...

Posted by: BillT at May 18, 2008 03:19 PM

So BillT, you're saying that you are the concussive-incendiary change that you seek? =8^}

Posted by: bthun at May 18, 2008 04:05 PM

I am not Change itself, but I *am* the agent of Change (eat your heart out, Barry).

Especially if you need something changed from its current configuration into -- uhhhh -- mulch...

Posted by: BillT at May 18, 2008 04:59 PM

"...but I *am* the agent of Change."

And that's just from drinking his coffee....

Yeah, but he doesn't have any Beer Bread to go with it. Poor guy.
