    It's our anniversary. So I surprise my wife with a bouquet of flowers.

    Wife says: "What's that for?"

    ^ Yeah, she'd completely forgotten.

    Which is great, actually; I'm glad she's not the kind of wife who expects some grand gesture every time, who would be furious if I had forgotten.

    Next time, I'll get a card too!

    hey, ask where your present is?

    i tease my wife about her birthday.
    i pretend to forget if it's the 14th or 15th.

    she hates that, maybe why i keep doing it. after 14yrs.

    After 52yrs, I still can't remember the exact date of my mother's birthday. Every year I miss the actual date by one or 2 days. All I know is that it's coming up at the end of this month and I'm going to have to call my dad again and ask him.

    I used to be terrible about that sort of thing, but here's how I fixed it:

    I buy a pocket sized weekly planner in the fall for the coming year - you can often find them at dollar stores in the late fall, for $1... These work great for keeping track of gig schedules, birthdays, anniversaries, etc... I transfer all the important annual dates into the next year's planner, and am good to go for another year...
