Oh, I can hear the cries out there in BLOG READING LAND, how could you possibly do such a thing? You are retired, have less pressure……HOW could you POSSIBLY FORGET your FOURTH Wedding Anniversary?
HEY DAVE, they have Rings which warm up to help remind you of your Wedding Day!!!! (Yes, but Dave can’t wear rings, his fingers turn green, blister, etc…..not a pretty site.)
Marcia and I married on February 25, 2011, a cold, wet day in Pine Bluff Arkansas. Other than the preacher friend of mine named Robert, who performed the ceremony, it was just the two of us, with Skruffy in the car, barking of course.
Here we were on that date…what a lovely UNFORGETABLE day that was indeed.
So, how did I forget? Beats me….. When did I remember???? This morning, March 1st…..yep, I didn’t even get the right month!!!! Hit me over the head with a stick! Beam me up Spock….well, can’t use that line anymore, God rest his soul.
So this morning I wake up, around 6:10 am, have a “not so common” headache. Get up and take an Aleve, lay back down hoping the headache will go away by 6:45 when we typically get up on Sunday for church. I start wondering in my groggy morning mind just how long I might be able to lay down in case my head doesn’t feel better in 30 minutes. Now what time does church start? Is it 9 am or 9:30???? Let’s see, when Marcia and I dated over the Internet via Skype, she would leave for church at…. “OH NO, THAT WAS FOUR YEARS AGO, I MISSED OUR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY!!!!!”
Now I had a choice to make…..
I could just pretend that I did not remember still…..no, that will just delay the inevitable.
I could “HOPE” that I was not the only one to forget it, that might be right because she keeps thinking our anniversary is on the 28th, which was last night…..I’ll just bet…..
“We forgot our anniversary….”
“No we didn’t, hmmm, what is today?”
“Today is March 1st hun.”
I think they call that, “Dodging a bullet”.
But it probably wouldn’t have mattered…..because the above is certainly true….and after all, we are still in love.
And now YOU KNOW, the REST of the STORY.
