As an alternative, may we also suggest one of the following:
1. You know those $10 Starbucks cards? Well, how about a free pass for 2 lattes and 2 scones, every day for life.
2. An assortment of Pacific rock fish and Alaskan king salmon, filleted and alder smoked. No less than 500 pounds, and please, absolutely no farm-raised fish.
3. A lifetime pass to the Space Needle elevator and 10 free dinners to the restaurant therein. Plus a lifetime entertainer pass to Folklife, with choice of stage. (Your mother wants to practice her belly dancing).
4. For a period of 3 years, a prepaid kiosk space in a prime location inside Pike Place Market, PLUS a steady supply of fish from NOAA research projects. All the sturgeon caviar we can get would be greatly appreciated. (Have you seen your mother throw fish? Wow! The caviar could be a problem, though).
