Dan Baber is so proud of his mother he offered bidders on eBay a chance to buy one day of her attention, to “make you feel like you are the most special person on the Earth.”
eBay didn’t go for the idea, so Baber decided to put Sue Hamilton’s wisdom up for sale instead.
As of Saturday afternoon, 40 bids on eBay item No. 1527369622 had pushed the price up to $165. The auction page was headed: “Best Mother in the World — Her Thoughts.”
“All I know is I have the best mother in the world. … All proceeds will go to her so she can spoil her grandchildren and teach me how to be as good of a father as she was a mother,” the new listing reads.
