Forgot Mother's Day

It’s no big deal that you forgot Mother’s Day. You’re just a horrible son or daughter with no appreciation for the tireless sacrifices of the woman that gave you life, that’s all. But fear not — there’s still a few more hours to save your soul, and nothing says “I love you” more than paying a little extra for overnight shipping.

    It’s nice that the Koolife sharpener has a handle, but otherwise it’s about the same as their $6 best seller.
