cajunrose Posted August 6, 2008 Share Posted August 6, 2008 Let me start by saying that my dad turned 50 2 years ago. We had a blast with his birthday but we outdid ourselves..now I can't think of what to do for my mom. For my dad, I had people from all over the world (bosses, friends, coworkers, people from the internet, family, etc) mail him plastic forks and pieces of rope with no explanation. The rope is because it is a HUGE pet peeve for him to see somebody cut a piece of rope..so he got these little pieces of rope. He always has said "What happens when you cut a rope enough times? You ain't got nothing left!" The forks were just for fun. He got hundreds of packages over the period of 2 months. On the night of his birthday, I got friends to come over and help, and we 'forked' his yard. He had 1700 plastic forks sticking out of his lawn and pieces of scattered rope everywhere. The signs in his yard said "Just like cut rope, you ain't got nothing left, friends and family say, stick a fork in you you're done" It was great! We had a blast. You should have seen the people driving by my mom and dad's house that weekend. Some would come several times and bring back more people. My dad had a blast with it. Now my mom is turning 50 and I need something for her. I can think of NOTHING. Problem is, she is going to be in Singapore until a few days before her birthday. Things she collects are postcards and bungee cords (yes..strange). My Aunt said to have people mail her postcards to singapore and she'll think she is in the clear for when she gets home. Then bungee cord the interior of the house so she can't even walk around on her birthday. I don't know...do you guys have any ideas? Anything YOU have done in the past?
