So I'm at the on-site fitness center at lunch today, elliptical-ing my way towards summer.

And hey, did you know we're in countdown to Mother's Day?

This was a ProFlowers commercial, with men talking about how satisfied they are with the flowers from ProFlowers. (Ok) Followed by commentary from an actress-mom saying "when I get flowers, I feel remembered and appreciated." (Cue gagging) Then, to top it off....
