“The truth is everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for” – Bob Marley
This just in: “Time is slip, slipping away”
What are you talking about?
Time! You’re running out of time.
Time for what?
Options. Shopping days.
Oh man. I hate this time of the year.
I start to feel guilty about something and it grows exponentially with each passing day right up to 12/25.
Soon enough, panic sets in.
Same thing with anniversaries, birthdays, mother’s day etc.
The source of all this angst is my woeful lack of understanding of women. So it seems.
For instance, if, years ago, my wife had given me a riding lawn mower for my birthday or our anniversary or whatever, I would have jumped for joy. Screamed “Oh yeah” to the heavens. “There is a God after all”.
Now, as a guy, I naturally applied the same logic to the choice of an appropriate anniversary present. What woman wouldn’t cherish an appliance on such an auspicious occasion? Such as a bread maker or a Maytag washing machine.
I’ve learned some hard lessons through the years my friends.
Eventually, I decided that Jewelry was a safe option for any occasion. A sure bet. Can’t miss. Okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay.
As I recall, it was our 35th wedding anniversary. Diamond ear rings. Expensive but………..the right choice?
Bob, you shouldn’t have. They are beautiful but………………we really need a new lawn mower.
