You could send flowers…. You could send candy…. To tell the truth, my own mom prefers a lottery ticket. But do you really want to just “phone it in” by doing the same old thing for Mother’s Day? (Yes, mom, I hear you saying, “Yes, yes, you gotta play to win!”)
Anyway, there’s a new way you could honor your mother, wife, sister, aunt, grandma, friend, colleague (have I got them all?): the Seattle Bed & Breakfast Association‘s “Give Mom a Break” contest. The winning mom will receive one night’s lodging at a member property, breakfast in the morning, a fresh flower bouquet at check in, a spa treatment, and dinner for two at a well known Seattle restaurant.
To enter, submit a one- to two-minute video clip – the funnier the better – featuring the reason(s) you or your mother, wife, friend, etc… needs a break. Deadline for entries is April 22, 2011. The winner will be announced May 6.
And just think, if you’re entering on behalf of someone else, you could get in on it too if you can convince her to bring you as the second person.
