It's our anniversary. So I surprise my wife with a bouquet of flowers.
Wife says: "What's that for?"
did you tell her?
^ 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.
Wife forgot my birthday a few years back. Best Bday present ever...a 'Get out of jail free card'!
Some classic gender role reversal there.
Congrats. You have hand.
Not all women are that shallow.
and some aren't even THAT shallow- ask me how i know
Yes, some go much deeper...
Just say that its a down payment on some front butt!
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...
Happy Anniversary, OP...
Mike, you win.
Far beyond exceptional my man. You did a difficult thing and nailed it. Very impressed.
You buy a new phone every year for a buck and sync your calendar with it? The times we live in
