Last week I went on a highly anticipated “Mom Date” for coffee. It was highly anticipated only by me, but that still counts. I’m guessing you’ve been pretty anxious, over this long weekend, to hear how things went. I know you had a lot riding on the results. We all did.
Without getting into the details (some things are very private), I think the above picture speaks for itself. It’s proof. It’s also a little keepsake for Melissa Mom, to commemorate our time together. I *really* hope she likes it.
Based on my dazzling success, I decided that tomorrow’s post will focus on tips for effectively picking up new mom friends. A sort of “How To” guide based on my lessons from the field. Or, as a commenter from my previous post, Christina, put it, from “adventures in trolling for lady-friends.” In the meantime, you can contact me directly for a downloadable template of the “Best Friends for Life” image, in case you want to make a customized memento for your new mom friend. I will sell it to you for $29.99, which can be paid to me in three easy installments. It will be worth it because keepsakes such as this are a surefire way to solidify a new relationship.
And finally, a really interesting read from Boston Magazine to leave you with. “The Terrifyingly Nasty, Backstabbing, and Altogether Miserable World of the Suburban Mom.” As you can see from the title, it’s a “feel good” piece. Seriously, though, it’s fascinating.
Leave a comment if you have any good tips for trolling for moms you want me to consider for tomorrow’s guide, or if you have any experience with the crazy-intense suburban mom social scene the article is talking about. I’m interested in the article and also kind of wanted to sh*t myself reading it.
Happy Memorial Day!
Hey I know her! We used to work at Wild Oats together (waaaaay back in the day) She was super nice. Nice job on the new lady friend Liz, you sure know how to pick ’em!
Thanks Phil! I like to think I have an eye for this. And yes she is super nice and also a good sport 🙂
