Okay, Jon’s birthday is today. I am usually the one that has a birthday present ready for weeks and have the house decorated with balloons the night before so the birthday person wakes up to a party atmosphere. I’ve been known to even have a scavenger hunt prepared. But, at 7:30pm last night…..I remembered Jon’s birthday. My first thought is that there is a grocery store in the next village that is open until 8:00pm. So, I told him that I needed eggs for tomorrow and drove very fast to the store. All I could find was a cold coffee drink and some chocolates, and of course, eggs. I found something to wrap them in and left them on the table for him to see first thing this morning. He thanked me. I thought I got away with it….until he asked me WHEN I purchased these “presents” for him. I knew I couldn’t lie, but….
Let me give you a little background. Jon is such a thoughtful man and he brings me flowers just for no reason. But, He ALWAYS forgets my birthday until the night before and then I get some grocery store present. So, after YEARS of harassing him and giving him lectures about thinking ahead and how valuable I am, etc, etc…. I forget his birthday! Maybe I won’t be so hard on him next time.
