Old Spice Is Your Mum's Worst Enemy

My ex's mother was very clingy. She showered him in hugs and big kisses, nagged him constantly but affectionately and called him several times a day. Each call would last about an hour. One Christmas she sent us a card. It was addressed to us both but said, "To a wonderful Son" on the front and had a picture of a cartoon little boy. Another Christmas he announced he'd be spending the day with me.
"You can always change your mind", said his Mum grabbing his hands and staring at him earnestly. I was standing next to him. Any time the subject of us getting married would arise in conversation his Mum would say, "there's no rush, you have the rest of your life!"

She meant well. She loved her precious son and wanted to remain the main woman in his life. This is why I can see her as one of the Mums in this Old Spice Commercial.

Oh and Happy New Year!

Here's to new beginnings and new adventures.

I'm single again so I'm sure I'll have plenty to tell you about.
