Role reversal

You know how your mom sends you clippings or email links of things she thinks you might be interested in? No matter how much of a stretch? Like, she sends you a clipping about a cat show because you really loved your cat in the third grade? For that true mommy vibe it should be even more obscure, for instance, I had a coworker whose mom sent him a National Geographic with an article on Finland in it, because she knew he had a coworker from Finland!

I just sent my dad a link to Monterrey Aquarium's new baby otters because our name comes from the word "otter" in Finnish and he likes otters. I call him "otter pop." He's probably opening the email right now asking himself what the hell, baby otters.

Man, I'm getting old.
