Just Another Day

Posted Thursday, February 14, 2008, at 8:35 AM

It's Valentines Day! What would it be like if it wasn't for the flowers, cards, jewelry, candy, TV pieces on the subject, and a host of other ways that we're reminded we should remember the day? I guess it would be just another day for most folks, but not us.

You see...today is our wedding anniversary. I'm not really sure how we decided to pick Valentines Day, but I think it was a smart move. For example, I have absolutely no excuse for forgetting.

I don't know anyone that actually has forgotten their anniversary, but over the years there have been TV shows and magazine articles about guys that have forgotten their wedding anniversary, and the forgetee is usually pretty upset with the forgetor in these accounts. From the cold shoulder to much worse have been portrayed as the result of forgetfulness.

So guys, in the unlikely event you think today is just another day, don't forget that Valentines Day is pretty special to most of our ladies, and the consequences of forgetfulness will be... well it won't be pretty I'll bet.

One last note to my wife and best friend...Happy Anniversary Margie! Thanks for saying yes!
