A Birthday Card Story

Men are lazy and careless. Well most of them anyway. I do believe there are a few exceptions. Just not many. I was looking for a birthday card in Wal-Mart a few weeks ago when this guy was complaining because he couldn't find THE card. (Keep in mind our local WalMart is extremely small.) I listened as he continued to rant about needing to get his wife a birthday card and they didn't have much. I said, "you surely have enough time to find the perfect card somewhere else. This selection isn't very good." (I have to admit it's not, but I love to write in cards so I don't really care what they say.)

He lit the bomb. "I have to find a card today. Her birthday is today."

The bomb's fuse began to smolder, I just had to, "OH NO!! YOU JUST FOUND OUT HER BIRTHDAY IS TODAY?"

He looked at me like I had two heads. I know he was wishing I would mind my own business. But he knew he started it. "NO!! I know when her birthday is." I thought he was going to cus me. "We've been married..." Then I got the look.

The bomb exploded. By the look on his face I knew HE knew exactly what I meant. He irritatedly shook his head and shut up. As my friend Gayla would say, "Dumb Bunny,not my fault, you started it." Things happen magically for this man at home. I could tell. His wife must be an angel...

Men....my husband complains every single year that it's a financial burden that my daughter and me share the same birthday....He has to buy us both gifts on the same day and this seems to be a problem every year....Like it's a big surprise after 34 years!! He does not believe in saving a little each month so your prepared when the birthday rolls around...Men.

My birthday is soon and Hubby asked me Sunday (which was his b-day) what I would like for my b-day. I didn't have an answer so guess I deserve whatever I get now don't I?
