HI THIS IS YOUR MOM E-MAILING PLEASE E-MAIL ME BACK

Doree Shafrir and Jessica Grose, the editors of the website Postcardsfromyomomma.com and the forthcoming book Love, Mom: Poignant, Goofy, Brilliant Messages from Home, were on the Brian Lehrer show this morning on WNYC. The website and book are a discussion about the often hilarious electronic communications from your parents, particularly via email and Facebook. Here’s an example from their website:

mom: hey, how r u today? do you tweet? i have no idea how to get tweeting………sounds like some people are addicting to whatever it is. i guess i shouldn’t bother bec i don’t need to get addicted to some other ridiculous hobby like that.
me: hahaha. where did you hear the term “tweeting?”
mom: on tv this morning. just asks the question, “what are you doing?” who cares i suppose……seems weird to me but what do i know. i’m just hanging out and trying to stay out of the way of getting into having to do something. so just relaxing.

They’re talking about Twitter, of course. The “Postcards from Yo Momma” website was destined to be a hit, as sharing unintentionally humorous or downright insane emails from your parents seems to be universal activity.

Doree and Jessica will be at 92YTribeca on May 7 for more talk about the perils, pitfalls and hilarity when parents meet technology. They even made—hold onto your embeddable video hats—a trailer for the book.
