Son Studying Abroad Sends Mom Cutout Of Himself, Regrets Decision Immediately

When Dalton Ross left his hometown of Nashville, Tennessee to study abroad at Belmont University in London, UK, he knew his mom would miss him, so he decided to do something about it.

He sent his mom Susan Talley a life-sized cardboard cutout of himself.

“I just thought sending a life-size cutout of me unannounced to my mom would give my family a laugh,” Ross told Aplus.

“I thought maybe they’d put it in the living room corner until I got back to remember I exist.”
