    Father's Day is for neckties and power tools. I am holding on to the cure until a more sentimental gift-giving holiday comes around.

    Hopefully, for safety sake, those two gifts are not used at the same time.

    Or a bucket with assorted accessories for washing the car, according to a commercial I saw just moments ago. Kind of the equivalent of giving Mom a vacuum cleaner.

    I remember some time back somebody truly na´ve and not calculatingly cynical bought five of those DNA kits for herself and her siblings. I forgot the event, somebodies Quince I think.

    Her *Mom* was NOT amused. All her Mom's friends were though.
