Tell her you didn't forget the occasion... your phone bill is due

You may want to ask over in the Women's Forum. I bet they have a TON of ideas.

I shoulda done that back in December....

Take her to Krystal's and splurge for a bottle of MD 20/20.

New vacuum cleaner?

My father-in-law did that one year for the mother-in-law. She was pissed, to say the least.

Take her to the range. Wait.... if I remember your previous posts, she goes and reads, right?

I guess I have no helpful ideas.

Congratulations, though

Way to wait til the last minute, dumbass. Sorry.
I've BTDT plenty of times too.

Now, for all you students of marriage, find a woman who makes cakes. Especially wedding cakes.
She will usually do them for very cheap. ($20 is average).
I got my wife an 8 inch circular layered cake for her birthday last month.
All I told the lady was "make it really nice, with flowers or something"
She made a cake that impressed even an emotionless prick like myself.
It looked like a woven basket on the sides, and was covered on top with huge flowers.
My wife liked the cake more than her birthday present, which cost a lot more than the cake.

Another time this worked well was our 1st anniversary. We had our cake top from the wedding, and were planning to put it in the freezer, but left for our honeymoon, and left it on the counter. So I had a picture from the wedding, and gave it to the cake lady. She made one exactly like our original. My wife was actually crying when she saw it.


Now, BeetleBailey, since you are short on time, stop at Meijer, or Kroger, or a Bakery, and see if they can't whip something up by tonight, with just some words on top. It will work almost as well. A Dairy Queen frozen cake could work too.


Then, pick up some flowers (my wife likes carnations better than roses, and they are cheaper than roses, too) and pick up some massage oil and a card. Tell her you are devoting the entire evening to her. Make her dinner. Do the dishes. Give her a massage, etc...

This will mean more to her than any expensive gift.
You can thank me tomorrow.

Thanks! Yes - but it's next Thursday (the 18th), not this Thursday (and I think Mike is joining us, even though we're going to Milo's ).

Call in sick for the rest of the week and go camping. Or if you can't call in sick all week wait until Friday both of you call in sick and go camping. Nothing is better than getting away together for a weekend.
