Reason #2,342 Why I Might Not be as Cool as I Think I Am...or Why Josh is a Saint Yet Again...

Okay, so remember 2 weeks ago when I was all drunk that one night and telling Josh, "Hey!  Next weekend is a three-day weekend for one of those holidays that we can never remember, like Martin Luther King or Columbus, but who we really, REALLY treasure because they ended up giving us a day off for whatever the hell it was that they DID and we should really look that up one day so we can actually treasure that shit for reals...but REMEMBER!! Next weekend is also Valentine's Day!!  Don't be an ass and eff it up."  

(I know! I am a total romantic when it comes to this holiday)

What??  You don't remember that?? Did I just say it to him, and a group of 7 people after I called him an ass again for something else he did?! I didn't actually write it??

Oh...well, then ...let me just take today and serve as your own personal Yoda...

Don't make a public ass out of yourself and then FORGET IT IS VALENTINE'S DAY because you got all drunk playing beer pong (and totally lost all that beer pong skill and undefeated status) and then woke up all hung over looking like shit while you lay on the couch watching re-runs of 30 Rock on DVD....

When your husband Josh (Who is now claiming to be a saint yet again) shows up with a hand-made card and a rather LARGE gift certificate to Jared Jewelers because he knows you're a total ass and won't like anything unless you pick it out your own self...so he gives you the gift of shopping....

(*sniff* *sniff* *SNORT*)

Well, I think we all know the lesson to be learned here.  It is important to remember that Valentine's Day is not about the GIFTS, or the remembering of the GIFTS or the CARDs, it's more about the giving of the love....

...and sometimes the love-giving is best expressed when you're drunk and you're calling your hubby an ass in advance for forgetting the holiday that you will actually forget..which, in reality is totally charming and kinda your thing, and you're totally hoping that your thing is why your hubby chose to marry you in the first place.

Sigh.

All right.  I'll say it:  I'm an ass.  And I forgot Valentine's Day. You are a saint.

However,

I do love you.   I always will (unless and until you call me fat and then it's on mister...GAME ON!)

but for now...I totally love you...

I'm pretty sure a woman with your many gifts can figure out how to make it up to him. :)

Michel's mom and dad, I didn't say that.

Happy V-Day, you two!

there's jared jewelers in sudan? or did he give you a present you can't cash in until sudan-god knows when?

i can't stand valentines day. but i was also brought up without a weekly church attendance. so i don't give much about saints and all that stuff.... ;-)

Bahahahaha! You ARE an ass! I think that is your thing, and that's why we all love you and maybe even why Josh puts up with you. And how did you forget about it when I JUST TOLD YOU last week that your thing was gonna be all valentiney? Silly goose.

MICHEL! Do I have to tell you everything?!

You NEVER have to buy Josh a present. You just have to convince him that you ARE the present! If you work on this every day, he will not even expect a gift from you ever again. He'll know, (and by know I mean you'll have him totally brainwashed), that he is the luckiest man alive just by being allowed to breathe in your presence. Then, anything else you care to let him do with/around you is an added bonus and something for which he will then owe you a gift.

It's GENIUS!!!

He went to Jared's?? OMG, how's that for turning a TV commercial into real life!

Actually, to set the record straight....Foreign Valentine's Day, as observed overseas, falls on the last Sunday of whatever damned week you decide it is. Thems are the rules. You were not in the wrong. In fact, I think Josh might have been a few months late.

I am so lucky to have a husband that remembers;)Hope you had an awesome Valentines!

You forgot? How could you?

Sigh. I guess you'll have to do what Fragrant Liar said to do. That is the only way.
