Mr. Romance

Sometimes I'm romantically-challenged. The latest evidence: Cathy and I had to change around our Valentines Day plans because... I set up an appointment with our tax guy in the early evening (I was wondering why he had that prime slot open).

Doh-h-h-h.

I tried the "nothing says loving like a tax refund" argument, but she didn't buy it.

Now the only question is whether I should take flowers to the accountant.

You're my hero! LOL! I think he'd actually prefer chocolates.

Good suggestion about the chocolate! Maybe I'll be a bigger refund that way?

I can top that.

about a week ago:

"Honey, I'll be leaving for Big Sur after dinner next Thursday night."

her:
"What date is that?"

me:
"oh, uh yea. Err, I'll be leaving Friday morning first thing."

Her:
"You might as well leave Thursday night now. As early as you want."

Doh!

I'm suddenly feeling a little better about myself. Thanks

Brad Wright said...

Ben... happy to help.

John... that is bad, but at least you're going to go do something fun.

Kent... my wife is well-versed in forgiveness, thankfully!

Brad: You and me both. I also made the tremendously idiotic decision of scheduling an appointment with our tax-returns person at 5pm on Valentine's Day. I'm not even kidding. We're a special bunch.

I would just call it a rookie mistake, but you've been at it much longer than I have ;-)

That's really funny Steve.

When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. Let me know when you're ready to learn some other dunderheaded marriage skills.
