Image: Mother Dearest and I with my newly birthed baby brother.
As a birthday present to my Mother this year I was supposed to take her to Hong Kong. Certain circumstances have changed those plans, so we are spending her birthday on opposite ends of the world. Lame.
As compensation, I will share a little limerick she's passed down to me from my grandfather. It's pretty awesome.
