Sunday is Mother’s Day and chances are good that you’ll be taking mom out to a delicious brunch or preparing one for her at home. And if you aren’t, what the hell is wrong with you? But the thing about brunch is that it often comes with unlimited Bloody Mary’s or mimosas. And the thing about moms is that access to unlimited Bloody Mary’s or mimosas is not always a good idea.

1. She starts whispering when she tells a story.
