Right of Reply

I guess it wouldn't be a blog without controversy. It seems last week I may have been a bit hasty and took a bit too much poetic license when I said my Mom forwarded superfluous emails. She brought it up to me, and upon further review, I would like to retract some of those statements and publicly apologize. So here goes:
Mama, you are right, I was wrong, and I am sorry for making it seem like you forwarded silly spam emails. Sorry Ma, I love you, always have, always will.
Here is the note I got from my Mom:

To set the record straight; As a matter of fact, I'm the one (Danny's MAMA) who does NOT forward ANY Email until I check snopes.com. I NEVER have. That includes Mr. Kangaroo and Mr Green Jeans were war heroes through Obama does not salute the flag, to AOL will send 10 cents foe every Email you forward, to Bill Gates will share his fortune (I'm in math, remember? I know about GEOMETRIC PROGRESSION) to whatever. All my friends ask me if something is true or a hoax and have been doing it for YEARS. The jokes, yes, I admit I used to forward everything. Now I am choosier. You ARE getting old and beginning to forget and/or confuse things. I mean it! I may forgive you, Danny but only because you are my son and I love you.

Mama

Spoken like only a mother can do!!
Once again Ma, I love ya!!

Daniel,

I know, I know. I really didn't think I was "making fun of her" so much as just relating a story, but I will be more careful in the future. What can I say, we're sons, we mess up from time to time. Thanks for the motherly advice, it is appreciated.
