hash browns

mother's day celebrations are scattered the world 'round. moms are smothered in loving cards, breakfasts in bed, and hugs. any gambler's mom knows her bet is covered.
today i recorded voice-overs for macy's big mother's and father's day sale. the origins of mother's day are said to lie in the greek celebration of rhea, the mother of gods. u.s. presidents enacted laws validating ours: woodrow wilson in 1914 for moms, and tricky dick nixon for dads in 1972.
the idea behind the advert was folks sitting around reciting parental cliches.
"eat your veggies."
"if you don't have anything nice to say..."
"i'm so proud of you."
this last one was followed by several different recordings of me gushing "awwww.'
we added "semper ubi sub ubi" for good measure.
for the dad's:
"measure twice, cut it once."
"righty-tighty, left-loosy."
a lot of tool humor.
we added "no crystal meth in my garage. use the school lab." followed by "awwww."
