Imagine my surprise, waking up on a Sunday afternoon, remembering that it’s Mother’s Day just in time to call my own mom right before I get into “he had to be reminded by Twitter” territory. Only to find that one of the first things that the dearest woman who gave me life wanted to talk about was Betty White. “Did you see Saturday Night Live last night? Betty White was so funny.”
Sadly, I did not watch Saturday Night Live last night. Looking back, I can now see the error of my ways. For when the internet — and a flash-mob movement on Twitter — calls for someone so adorable as Betty White to host the decades old variety program, something special is surely in order. And from what I hear, it was spectacular. If I weren’t unpacked and due to leave for the airport in an hour, I would certainly watch with you as you scroll down and utilize the embeddable Hulu player to enjoy last night’s very special episode. I promise that I will watch it at some point. I know all too well the consequences of ignoring Betty White.
So call you Mother and wish her a Happy Mother’s Day. Then watch the 46-minutes of brilliance below.
