One night, surfing about like he usually does because he likes to not be asleep in the middle of the night when it’s quiet (since he can sleep in any condition, but not be alone with his thoughts then), Kings stumbled on Fiverr.com. For USD5 you can get someone to do all kinds of stuff ranging from the cool to the boh liau. Like so:
(Ok Kings paid USD10 for this because he wanted video and photos. Then, after Class 95FM has been going on and on about Mother’s Day since we got here, my husband says without a touch of irony, “Mother’s Day coming meh?” Uh, hello, did you read my blog? So I will take this as my Mother’s Day pressie, thank you very much.)
One of the things that never ceases to amaze (or amuse) me is Kings’ quirky little talent for remaining oblivious to certain blindingly obvious until it walks up to him and introduces itself. That, and my husband’s ability to climb into bed and be seriously asleep in the middle of a fight. (Really. I kicked him in the shin once to be sure. He was totally asleep. OMG my husband invented Opportunistic Narcolepsy.)
Anyway, I went to Fiverr to check it out myself. Guess what I found:
So anyway – BUAHAHA!!!!!
Want an unusual Mother’s Day gift for a Mummy blogger close to you, call Richard.
And btw Fiverr started a few months back, now it’s ranked 347 on Alexa. (Look who’s laughing now.)
