Ok, so usually I get up around 7.30 or so and try to get to work by around 8.30 or 8.45.
The last week I have been staying up late and getting really tired though, so this morning I awoke to see the clock saying 7:55.
"Ack...I'd better get up"
I shut my eyes.
I opened my eyes. "8:15! Oh crap!!". So 2 minutes later I actually get up, jump in the shower, brush my teeth, kiss the kids and get in the car.
"8:35! Not bad. I won't be too late."
So I'm driving along, past Glenloch Interchange. Past Black Mountain. Past Commonwealth Avenus. Past.....
"OH SHIT!!!. SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT FUCKEDY SHIT!!"
I had forgotten to wish my wife a happy 30th birthday!! "SHIT!!".
How much of a bastard am I! 30 years. It's a big one too.
Sure, we had the party on Monday and she has gotten some presents, and she always says, "It's just another day.."
I got to work, and rang her...
"Umm..hi...Happy Birthday hon!"
"Ummm..sorry I didn't say it this morning...i was just running late.."
Oh fuck...She's pissed
"So...umm..wanna have lunch or something?"
"Mum and Grandma are coming over.."
Phew...that'll cover me for a bit
"Ok..I'll try and get home early.."
"Ok...have a great day sweetie....Bye!"
Well...it wasn't too bad. I'll just have to get home early with some flowers and wine, and maybe I can resurrect my life...
I did that. She is slowly coming around :)
Went to Sizzler for dinner. Thay place isn't bad and it was dead quiet. Bit exxy thouh, so you have to eat till you burst to get your moneys worth.
Gotta love that cheese toast though..
So, anyway. Guys! Don't forget your partners birthdays. It's really not too good for the relationship.
I guess after 6 years though that Fee is used to my forgetfulness....but still, better keep up the nice nice!!
